I don't really know where I'm going with my photography. But I do like knowing my equipment is bullet proof and can handle going in whatever direction I choose to take. That's why I chose this head and paired it with a Berlebach 2032. Which incidentally was recommended to me as quality equipment that would last me a lifetime and then some by a 40+ year professional photographer. After using this combination for a while I still haven't used all the functions the head is capable of. But, it's served me flawlessly. I do remove the head when I'm not using it and store it in my camera bag inside its original box. It is rugged but it's also something I don't want to pay to replace because I was negligent in caring for my equipment. I prefer buy once cry once. Not wash rinse repeat if you know what I'm saying. Overall a very fine head and proudly made in the USA and you can't say that about very many products in this game especially these days.
Used for outdoor, nature photography. Precision feel throughout; excellent quick release system; packed with features. Like that the ball head does not need lubrication. Love the fact that this product is made in the USA.
I bought this head to go with my gitzo 1228 tripod. Both are very light but very well made. I think it is a good product but I havn`t had it for long.
