Some companies simply slap their brand name on a cheap copy to make a quick buck. One company even went so far as to list SLIK's model number on their copy's hanging tag. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, we think that speaks for itself.
SLIK has been quietly designing and manufacturing their own high-quality tripods for more than 50 years. SLIK has won 6 prestigious Japanese Ministry of Trade and Industry "Good Design" (G-Mark) awards. SLIK's original and innovative designs have been copied so many times that some of their ideas have become industry standards.
Don't settle for a cheap copy, check out the quality and heritage of SLIK tripods, monopods, and heads here on-line and at your local camera store.
