I haven't had a lot of time with this head yet since we bought it to use exclusively on our Dana Dolly but it seems great! **Note: if you plan on using this with the Dana Dolly where you will be using the extra center support for the track, you will need to buy different hardware to tighten it into...

Great Tripod!! Bought for the BlackMagic URSA and couldn't be happier. Also used for other cameras and it's supper smooth and easy to use and transport. Highly recommend it.

Solves the tall problems. Also can get very low. The build seems great especially for the money.

Doesn't lock, drifts down after you set a frame. knobs are cheap garbage, machining of locking screws feels loose and cheap. Does a bad job tilting/ panning/ landing on a frame smoothly. Heavy, awkward to carry.

Perfect for a slider! The stability is awesome. So happy with it!

I'd been eyeing this tripod for over a year. I was having seriously trouble with my old Manfrotto 701HD head keeping up with the weight of my RED Scarlet, and knew I needed a suitable tripod to match.

The tripod is a little awkward and clunky compared to more expensive sets but it's decent for the price. I do recommend spending some time removing every screw and applying thread locker.

Now most of the time you already need some support up to 30lb so Its a good choice . Because its new a couple of days you can hear the liquid inside but then its getting smooth and quiet . Yet I can't see big difference with others pro brands unless you will need support higher than that .
