I loved (past tense) this head. It was everything I needed in a tripod head for quick and smooth adjustments, until the tripod slipped off my cart, and landed on linoleum tile floor. As you can see from the photo, the part of the head holding the mounting plate is wafer-thin. Very major design flaw.

I originally purchased this head a few months ago to replace one of my failing JR gear heads. I thought by purchasing this bigger head it would not fail as often. I was wrong. I had 3 of the JR heads because one always need to go to Arizona for repair. Now I need to do the same thing with this head.

I knew for a while that my ball head is cumbersome in making precision adjustments when shooting landscapes and the solution is the Manfrotto 405 Geared Head.

This head has everything I need for shooting architecture. While it may not be up to the quality level of a Cube it's definitely stable and has accurate fine movements. A bargain compared to the price of the Cube

I decided to buy the Manfrotto 405 Geared Pan-and-Tilt Head based on reviews and the Manfrotto brand. Upon arrival, this head was impressive and appeared built to hold heavy gear.

After messing around with my ball head manfrotto tripod attempting to shoot city scenes during the blue light hour I decided to replace the ball with a gear head. The control you get with a gear head over a ball is like night and day, especially when shooting a 70-200mm Tamron f 2.8 in a portrait...
