It's a nice setup man. Raise the head some and it will be even better. As for what people thing, it's compact and it works great! That's all that matters. Look at it this way, you could take that thing with you in the car and not bust a nut trying to load/unload it. Elite if you ask me. Only thing that would improve that thing would be a table that didn't warp where the clamps are. I saw a video a while back where the aluminum rails warp a bit when you pull tension on them. That's about it... but it looks awesome.
I can't wait to get my Wise and mount it on my Alpha. It'll be almost as compact but heavier due to steel construction of the table/rails, etc. Damn you... now I want a Wise more. lol
