These are solid tripod legs. I am tempted to pick up a set for backup legs.

I just offered him $31.70 and he came back with $34.00 so make sure you send him an offer before buying.

I ordered one. I've been needing a better tripod. I didn't think about making an offer first though. I'm not too concerned. $40 is still cheap.

you still need to buy a head, right?

Correct, you still need a head.

You can get a Bogen 486rc2 Ballhead for around $60

Which puts you at about $100 for a nice setup. You can find cheaper heads than that for sure.
