Manfrotto tripod leg protectors - only fits some Manfrotto tripods
David from Missouri
I bought a set of these from Eagle Optics for a Manfrotto 290 series, carbon tripod legs. After a sympathetic conversation with Eagle Optics Customer Service acknowledging they were a challenge to install, followed by torn fingers, broken pulls and separated coils sustained while trying to make them fit, I contacted Manfrotto Customer Service to learn that these ONLY fit the series 190 tripods (slightly less than 1" diameter). This is despite what you might read on some web sites that these wraps will fit tripods with leg diameters of 1" - the diameter of the 290 series Carbon uppermost leg.
Eagle Optics graciously allowed me to exchange the damaged wraps for another item. These folks are seriously helpful and stand by their products!
In addition to not fitting the series 290 tripods, the Manfrotto wraps are very thin with little cushioning for your shoulder. I found an excellent alternative in the OP/TECH USA OPTLW1B, 1" Tripod Leg Wraps which are longer (17" vs. 10", and can be cut to size), fit well (they come in 1", 1.25" and 1.5" diameter), provide more cushioning, and cost less.
