Time for a tripod upgrade

Hi folks.
Looking at a tripod upgrade for wide field AP. I did recently come across a Neewer 66 which had pretty good reviews, but diving deeper into reviews it seems there are many mixed reactions regarding overall build quality which has put me off. I did over the weekend come across a brand called ARTCISE (formally known as INNOREL) who make a range of tripods. This one in particular caught my eye:

Seems like a lot on bang for your buck and have an impressive payload of 20kgs. Have great reviews online with performance and build quality to match. Wondering if anyone here has used or knows of this tripod?
Thanks for reading,

Never heard of them, but the Chinese companies are making some good quality cheap stuff.

I have Manfrotto, Gitzo, Sirui and Feisol tripods. Manfrotto are nice but pricey for what they are. Gitzo are also pricey but built like tanks (well, my version for the Canon super teles is anyway).
But I use the Sirui and Feisol tripods the most. They're super light, and my Sirui is waterproof as well so I use it for sunrise seaside shots.

The tripod you linked to looks great. So long as you don't use it near the ocean (those locks always end up getting crusty sea salt in the nooks and crevices even if you keep it clean) it'll be fine.
