They sure have gone up in price now - $199 from a few vendors here.
Yeah. Not cheap! But I’ve weakened and ordered one. Even at $200 odd, it works out cheaper than having one custom made. At 40cm long, it does allow you to sit the tripod lower and being closer to the ground, probably means more stability.

We’ll see.
