The DIYphotography.net team couldn't help but be intrigued by Sachtler's claims of flowtech ruggedness, reliability, and robustness. It was the perfect setup for an epic showdown. They didn't just shake hands and exchange business cards; no, they issued a challenge that would put the Sachtler flowtech tripod to the ultimate endurance test: the Dead Sea.
Adam Frimmer, issued the challenge:
