Buy both, 3 & 5 series Twisted Evil

3541 for traveling, 5541 for local use [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

For poor man like me, I will go for 3530/3531 or 3541.

I would choose either GT3530LS or GT3541XLS.

The last section of the GT3541LS and GT3541XLS is thinner and we try not to fully extend it when shooting, so GT3541LS will become shorter.

The GT3530LS is the replacement model of the old and trusty GT1325.

Mr No Good is using GT3541XLS and he is getting very good results.
