The new 190X is a 3-section aluminum tripod with essential functions and excellent built-in quality. The key feature of the 190X is the ground level adaptor which allows great shooting creativity. Once placed on the top casting and combined with the 4 leg angles, it enables the tripod to reach ultra-low positions. The legs of the 190X tripod are fast to extend and adjust, thanks to the Quick Power Lock levers that block and unblock each leg section. The QPL levers are specially designed to allow a more comfortable, stronger single-handed grip of the leg locks. From a folded position, the sections of each leg of the tripod can be released in a single movement. The QPL lever design also enables each section to lock more powerfully, making the tripod more stable and rigid than with traditional lever designs. Intuitive, ergonomic leg angle selectors allow each leg to be independently and solidly set to any of the pre-set angles, allowing even greater positioning freedom. The top casting of the 190X has an Easy Link connector to support a photo or video accessory (such as a LED light, flash, reflector, or other piece of equipment) on an extending arm or bracket, turning the tripod into a practical mobile studio. The 190X is made in Italy by Monforte.

However! When I put the new tripod head on the legs I found a major flaw.
There used to be 3 set screws on the tripod plate of all Manfrotto tripods, and all of the heads and legs are or at least used to be interchangeable (aside from flat plate to bowl head). Well they've recently redesigned all of their tripods to only have one set screw instead of 3. This would normally be fine, but they've also changed the diameter of where the set screw is in relation to the center screw. In fact it's so drastic that you cannot tighten down the tripod head to the legs because of it! The set screws do not screw into their specially machined grooves, but instead dig into the metal surrounding the main head screw. It prevents it from firmly locking down and when you're on the highest drag setting and pan from right to left it simply unscrews the tripod head from the legs. Very Frustrating!!
I've talked with the US manfrotto office and they also witnessed the issue using the same products in their warehouse after I brought it to their attention. They also test the next two more professional sets of legs, but alas, they all had the same top plate of the legs. This is major issue for professional use.
TL;DR: Well built, easy to use and manipulate, but set screw is in the wrong place and prevents tripod head mounting correctly.
11/12/16 No product follow up by the company and the issue is the same. Downgrading my rating for lack of company responsiveness.
