I'm a firm believer that there is no such thing as a single tripod for every situation. So I've elected to own two, a ultra-packable tripod for short lenses, and this tripod.The G1348 holds a lot of weight, and hence is great for big guns, is sturdy as can be, and packs up to a short two feet. My motto: a long or bulky tripod is a tripod left in your car,'nuf said. I've heard people say that the G1325 is sturdier, but honestly I don't care. Why don't I care? Because when I extend two of of the three extendable leg segments of the G1348, it is the perfect height for me. I don't need the fourth leg segment. The G1325 wouldn't be quite right.
(And since you may be trying to figure out if this trick will work for you, I'm 5'9). Some people don't like the leg locks. There is a trick to this.Do not over-tighten the locks! If you do, ultimately, it will require even more tightening, etc. Tighten the locks one quarter turn past when you first feel resistance, and that's it. Also, extend the leg locks working from the lowest lock first, untwist that, extend, go up the tripod leg.
If anything slips, slightly tighten the upper locks. Reverse the procedure to collapse.
