My Slik 88 must be 30 years old and is still going strong. I also have a lightweight of theirs too which does the job.

The name I hear most often for the “best” tripods is Gitzo.  I’m very happy with my MeFoto, which costs far less.  In fact, I just took it out this morning.  Result below.

A lot depends on what you want out of a tripod.  Portability?  Stability?  Height?

I have the Gitzo GK1555T-82TQD.  Great tripod, compact, lightweight and sturdy.  Easily the best tripod I’ve ever owned.  I believe Matt Granger uses the same tripod.  I did own one of the bigger Gitzo systematic tripods before, but found that I never took it with me anywhere due to the size and weight.

I also have the Giottos VGRN 8225-5310-630 which is smaller and lighter, but less sturdy.  Great for compact cameras.

If you just want the most expensive tripods, look at “Really Right Stuff” and “Arca Swiss” heads.
