Uncompromised Quality and Performance

Have used it for two very long safaris in tough environments and I am delighted at its performance. Top notch quality and very easy to use. Ball can move with fluid motion and then be locked to hold my 600mm lens with extender very firmly. I have a Markins head as well and they are equal in performance and manufacturing quality, but this one is half the price I paid for my Markins. Highly recommended.

Induro BHD2 Ballhead

By

from SoMD  -  Photo Enthusiast

Bought or use with n Induro tripod that would sustain the weight of a D300s and extended lenses, or a DSLR attached to a spotting scope, which is where others have failed in not sustaining initall settings. Fits the tripod very well, very functional ballhead and works well with the Kirk L-bracket. Size, strength, positioning features, etc. Can't wait to really take it in the field. Nothig bad to say about it at this point in time.

Sturdy and Smooth

By

from Olympia, WA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this together with the Induro CT313 tripod and it's a great fit. The ball friction is very smooth and the Swiss-Arca style plate works great. I usually have a negative aspect to share in my ratings, but I can't find one here. The combination tripod and head is what I was looking for--sturdy and smooth.

Rock Solid

By

from Thousand Oaks, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I paired this head with the Induro CT314 legs both support 39.6 lbs. and when locked down this system is rock solid. Simple and easy to use I can easily find and adjust the right knob without even looking at them with gloves on as each is sized different. The arca-swiss mount is industry standard and works with my other heads. Bottom line, you buy a head and legs for stablity and this system delivers at price you can afford.

Great durable ballhead

By

from Phoenix, AZ  -  Pro Photographer

This is the second one of this ballhead I purchased. Use on on my travel tripod and now on my studio setup. Takes some getting used to after using panheads for years, but I really like the lighter weight and sturdy clamping. I needed to make the change due to a recent break of my right hand. This product really made things easier for me.
