The fluid head mount arrived broken. Didn't like the leg "locks", you have to twist them and they don't "catch" right away.
very solid construction, all metal. the quick release is easy to use, has a quick snap lock and an additional safety lock. controls are smooth and easy to use. i have seen and used more expencve pods and in my opinon arn't as well made.
