Berlebach Tripod, Which model for 4X5? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I am looking at possibly moving to a wooden tripod and along with Ries am considering Berlebach. Does anyone have first hand experience with current Berlebach tripods? I will be using it with the six pound Wisner 4X5 Traditional. I have looked at the Berlebach web site and there are many models to select from. Any particular model that works well with my camera? I will be hiking and backpacking so I would like to keep it as light as possible but rigid as well.

I use one with my 8x10 - and I do backpack. Very nice, stable tripod - I believe it is made of ash. You would probably want one of their lighter models though, if it is for a 4x5 - maybe the Kadette or therebaouts. Cheers, DJ.
