This review is lengthy, as it spans 14 months of actively trying to make this work. Our experience, below, reveals things you should know before buying! Bought this to hold wife's scope (almost exactly only half the weight of published load limit).

This is the lightest tripod head I have had, and like it a lot. It is easy to use with good rotation, both side to side and up and down. I am using it with my Nikon Fieldscope which is very lightweight and a Gitzo tripod.

This is an awesome product. I not only hunt big game animals in the west, which requires long range spotting, but also guide hunters to these same animals. Having a great spotting scope, as well as an efficient tri-pod that is smooth and easy-to-use head is critical.

I use the head to attach a Baader Vario 10x60 finder to use it as a spotting scope. The head is so light, has a full range of very smooth motion, and the clamping is very firm when using a heavy eyepiece. Just tighten up the clamp and the balance issue is solved but it still moves smoothly.

I do some guiding for Birder's. I have a lot of spotting scopes by different manufactures for people to use, and Demo when out with me.I have found this Gitzo #1720QR to be the best spotting scope Birding head to date for me!

Compact size and simple one wheel control for all movement. Expensive but I think worth the money

Attached to my 190cxpro4 tripod, it is really smooth to operate my zeiss 85 spotting scope, in a controlled manor it is fast and easy to follow all forms of wildlife.

The GH1720QR is really good, easy to use with easy and smoothness of movement, especially when penning. It is strong and light. I am able to use it with heavy lenses such as Nikon 300 mm VR f/1.4 and the Nikon fieldscope 85mm VR. It can be used with any tripod.

Gitzo claim this is the only tripod head designed specifically for birdwatching. Having tried most of the others, I can believe this.<br /><br />It really does have the best features and functionality for use with a compact birding scope.
