I first purchased one of these back in 1999. I still have it and it has always been reliable. I've always used the manfrotto hexplates on all of my camera equipment. Thus when I purchased a new ball head I wanted to continue to use the sample plates. Purchasing this piece of equipment allows me to use my existing plates on non manfrotto ball heads. The manfrotto gear I own has always been reliable and durable. As a working professional, that is crucial.
I am the house photographer at a local performing arts theatre. I use rapid connect plates on my camera body and on a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens with the adapter mounted on a monopod. This allows for very stable mounting and quicker equipment changes. When hand holding the zoom, the plate makes a good grip
