I use this for a large format view camera, it does the job. I would prefer a camera plate that was standard to other quick release systems but for my purpose this works. Head is fairly rugged and the build quality is good.
Only needed a head that tilted and panned, but this one had too much motion.
I have had mine for 4 years and it performs flawlessly, even when left in my car at minus 25C. Used for Nikon D700 and D800 and for Mamiya RB67. Really like the ease of of tightening and release and the ability to adjust the friction to the camera weight.
Excellent product. Easy to get your levels when tripod not straight and getting from landscape to portrait format. Read a few good reviews in camera mags and Wex website so thought I would go for it and have no regrets.

None At The Moment
Having used this head for over 5 years in all weathers, I can honestly recommend it as a strong reliable robust ball head, it has been thrown over walls and fences, covered in sand and mud in search of the perfect picture whilst chasing the light.I recently bought a GITZO ball head to replace this...

Previously had a Manfrotto 055 photo/video head (see my earlier review) and really couldn't get on with it. When you only get a few minutes access to a place or person to get shots that matter it's important that the gear behaves like you'd expect it to.

It would appear to be flawless!

I've owned this for about two years and I like it more and more. Used with a Nikon D800e, Hasselblad and 4x5 view camera, it's well made, smooth and doesn't budge once locked down. It's a little heavy (so four stars rather than five) but I still take it with the Gitzo GT253 on many day hikes.
easy set-up. good to use for active shooting.
Had this head for for less then a week and it stopped locking. Was on an assignment and when I went to make an adjustment the head just went limp and would not lock at all. Both the main locking knob and friction knob appear to have stopped functioning for whatever reason.
