  • Excerpt: Got this to go with my Gitzo GT1542T because there was a rebate. Its good quality ball head, but no bells or whistles or level etc. I got this one (for now) rather than some other brand because the GT1542T legs fold backwards, so I wanted to get the right size head for this tripod and this seems to...

  • Excerpt: I bought this during a rebate period so the price point made it very appealing! Having never worked with a ballhead before, I am finding it quit easy to use...very flexible. It holds strong and there isn't really any settling when I tighten down. This was a really good purchase in my book.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this to fit on a compact magnesium Gitzo tripod to attach a Sony Nex 7. I like that the threaded screw is fixed to the camera platform, so all you have to do is turn the entire platform to fix the camera onto it.

Great ball head for the price

  • Excerpt: I bought this ballhead during the rebate period and therefore was very excited to get a good ballhead at a great price. This ballhead is quite light, and travels easily. It is a little larger than I think I expected, but far more compact than my Manfrotto 430MG.

  • Excerpt: Purchased due to the phenomenal rebate resulting in a total cost of [$]. However, I find it quite useful as a backup to my arca swiss setup as well as use as a flash stand. Thinking about even placing it on my monopod for heavier lens applications.

Fast, Easy to Use, Well Made

  • Excerpt: I use this on a monopod, a Gitzo aluminum 2341. It helps with angling the monopod the way I like, and giving some extra height to the monopod. I added a 1.75" Kirk clamp to make it an Arca release ball. With just a single control the ball is quick and easy to manipulate.
