    Good basic design let down by shoddy build
    This is a big, strong ballhead, but it's rather poorly put together. Mine arrived with scratches on many of the exterior fasteners. The biggest problem is the safety pin that keeps the camera plate from sliding out - the whole mechanism is retained only by a singly tiny M3 set-screw that is not only too short to properly engage the threads, the threads in the ballhead are so sloppily machined that the set screw backs out if you look at it wrong and then the whole spring-loaded mechanism shoots out of the ballhead. Sure, you can still use the ballhead with a missing safety pin, but do you really want to risk your expensive gear?

    Seemed decent..But ultimately failed after 3 uses
    I used this head exactly 3 times. On the last, I was just trying to remove my quick release like normal and the safety release pin just fell out and the button popped off as well. While I'd like to think I'd just get a replacement, I am extremely worried about trusting this product again with $12,000 worth of equipment on it. Also, the fact that the Swiss Arca (type) mount is just slightly bigger than the real version makes this quick release a pain. I was really hoping to use my other Swiss Arca mounted lenses with this head. Unfortunately, it will just fall off as it's about 1/4" too big/loose.

    PROS: Smooth head, Price, Good size

    CONS: Broke almost immediately. While the materials feel great and well made, the fact that the "safety" mechanism just fell apart on my 3rd use makes it a NO WAY if you worry about your equipment. It might be ok on a tripod when just set on top. But on my monopod where you carry it with the camera/lens attached, it's too scary for me.
