What do you know about these ProMediaGear  tripods?  Really how do they compare to RRS?

Both high end equipment but I went for the Gitzo line system
because of the equivalent quality but the not so crazy prices.

Not same pricing?  I thought Gitzo tripods can get $1000+  too?

I said "line system" I think. I considered the quality first. The extent
of the options within any given system. Then I compared prices.

I am in central Europe and Italy is right next door as the other brands
may come from further away. Had I been back home in Canada, Gitzo
would have been studied like any other system but I would probably
have chosen the Canadian made Jobu Design Algonquin tripod system
since I already have two Jobu Design Black Widow Pro II gimbals and
I love these things..

I am in a position where I can afford anything but I make a point of not
trying to saving money but spending it better and clever investments.

Gitzo have levelling bases that others may not have.

BTW, Gitzo Serie 5 has the beefiest tripod legs on the
market at 43mm  ! With time, I got 2 for wildlife and
2 for on location work.

Their tripods are nice too, save your money on their bullheads.  I personally don't care for it.

A friend has a RRS tripod, I'm not sure of the model but that thing is gorgeous.  He paid a grip for it too, not sure I would.  But it was a fine looking tripod though.

Frankly you can't go wrong with either.  I like that you can get apex color options with promedia ones.  I think their 42mm is just too large.  Their smaller 34mm is a nice option.
