I’ve just purchased another small tripod to use for my flash/umbrella setup. The tripod in question is a Manfrotto 7302YB, which I’ve read replaces the 725B.
There’s basically not much to differentiate between them.
The red handle is far easier to open than the new black one. Other than that they’re basically the same.
I’ll admit I’ve never used the 725B to handle any loads bigger than a flash+umbrella combination so I can’t say how well it grips. I’ve got bigger tripod for camera work.
If I could have found another 725B I would have bought one of those instead. Oh well. 150€ for a flash tripod isn’t going to kill me. It’s far smarter than using a chair to put the flash on…
