Excerpt: This is the 4th Gitzo ball head I have purchased. I wanted one a little stronger than the smaller versions I had. I love their ball heads. They work great, really strong and relatively light. I also have their smallest version and it amazes me how strong and light it is. I purchased this one with a rebate so the price was very good too. Great product no issues.
Pros: Attaches Firmly, Good Stability, Large Range of Motion, Strong Clamp
Summary: You're looking at a Gitzo, so you probably know you want the best.This head is very very good indeed. Small, light and solid.It would make a great upgrade to the head on a 1541T making a very solid travel kit. However, when you fold the 1541T with it on the legs won't fold all the way due to the control knob.
Pros: Compact, Easily Adjusted, Lightweight, Locks In Tight, Smooth Movement
