Can't compare it to any others this being the first ballhead I have owned. It does the job well so far. Even supports my Nikon D810 with the Nikkor 200-500 f5.6 well.

This is my first bullhead. I bought it to hold a Nikon 200-500mm VR lens. It seems up to the task. It mounted without a hitch on an older tripod I already owned and the quick release plate works good.

A great improvement in stability from the B1. Use it on one of Benro's carbon-fiber tripods. Holds steady my D800 and Sigma 150-500 lens in the field.

Works well for creating pianos and provides sturdy support.

Just got home from eight days of outdoor photography and used the head with 5D Mark 2 with three different lenses including 70 to 200 f4 and the head functioned very well.

Ballhead is solid and keeps a Nikon D3s with a 70-200 lens immovably in place at any angle, regardless of whether the PU70 plate is on the camera or screwed onto the lens' tripod foot. Works great with Arca Swiss plates and with my Really Right Stuff L-plate.

Very easy to set up. It is stable and well built.

Really pleased with this head so far. It's very fluid and responsive. Not much else to say really. It does well what it's supposed to do!

This is as good or beter as any of the so-called brands. I do not believe that the $400 + heads are twice as good as this. There is no extra accesories needed - Just works out of the box.

Seems like a quality made product and solid as a rock even with large telephoto lenses and a gripped body.
