The tripod has gotten positive reviews:

 This acts like a tripod in places where its impossible to get a real tripod into! or bend all three legs and use it as a selfie stick. this is the perfect pod to do run and gun shooting for vlogs on youtube. The new 3k/2k/1k/5k models have enhanced glue on the ball joints so it wont go loose as quick as the previous older gen models. the panning mode on the ballhead is perfect, and comes in handy for those cinematic shots for sure. the material used is great and feels EXTREMELY sturdy in my hand. my DSLR didnt budge one bit while on this pod.

 -very light and compact for travel and very sturdy. I used it last at the Delicate Arch during sunset on an uneven “bowl” surface and I was able to adjust the legs. It held up my 5D Mark IV with 16-35 f/4L or 24-105L attached very well. I can’t wait to take this on my trip along the coast of Italy!
