I wanted a lightweight compact pan head for travel, but this is neither compact nor light. Also, the pan and tilt are way too stiff for a head of this size. I thought it would loosen up after some use, but it did not. Returning it.

The 128RC is a high quality piece of equipment that makes it very easy to shift from camera to telescope to binoculars. Just insert hear a snap, and feel solid support. Highly recommended.

I like the 128RC that I bought 4 or 5 years ago and wanted to have a duplicate. I was expecting the new unit to perform the same. However, the fluid pan movement (left-right rotation) on this new unit is stiff even when the tension adjustment is fully opened.

This is a well proven tripod head ideal for birders telescopes. Good smooth pan and tilt, simple to operate. Some people shorten the handle but I never found it a problem. All in all a great head. I would buy again if mine wore out.

Works well with my D800 and 70-200mm lens. Very smooth and handles the weight well.

Just sold one of these this morning, after taking a closer look at it I'm really impressed. This is a great value video head with Manfrotto quality. It does what it says, it really is a 'Fluid' moving tripod head. Max Load 4kg,

High quality inexpensive fluid head from Manfrotto that is perfect for the budding videographer or surf photographer. Great value and easy smooth operation.

I have an 8.5 lb camera and it's ok but not that solid.

Works very well - especially for the price. The tightening/tension adjustment screws are getting a little loose (i.e. more toward all/none), but it's still doing a great job.
