Nodal Ninja 3 - specific tripod?

I just ordered the Nodal Ninja 3 for a panohead, but I need to get a tripod as well. I know people are recommending the Manfrotto one, but I'd rather not have to order it.

If I'm going to Henry's or something, will just any tripod do? Is there something specific to look for? Could I technically use one of the cheapies from Walmart or someplace?

Thank you for your help!
Amanda

You will need a quality tripod like a Manfrotto, Gitzo or Velbon etc that are made from solid materials and sit very sturdy on the ground. Avoid anything with plastic especially around the mounting head area.

This one is on special at Henry's right now the Velbon 200R though I would normally recommend the 600R.

Henry's have a wide range of tripods in stock that would be suitable according to their website.
