22 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Was looking for a tripod head for digiscoping. Went on the positive reviews and purchased this head. Yes it's lightweight and nicely built but it not have the feel of a fluid head. It is more like a friction head.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Friction Head

Tripod head review

Pat, Eagle Optics

  • Summary: This is the lightest tripod head I have had, and like it a lot. It is easy to use with good rotation, both side to side and up and down. I am using it with my Nikon Fieldscope which is very lightweight and a Gitzo tripod.

  • Excerpt: I tested this with an 80mm Swarovski scope (total weight with eyepiece is 3.6 lbs). Although I feel the head might be better sized for a 60mm class scope, it's overall weight seemed on par with other heads that do well with 80's.
