...because I like the head except for one large problem: it's very difficult to tighten-- especially the tilt handle. Like others here have said, you have to REALLY clench it down to keep it from moving forward or backward, especially with a weighty lens.

Although a big fan of quality ballheads, I ended to buy this p&t head for my Manfrotto 055XPRO tripod And I do not regret it at all. Very well constructed, ergonomic, and with a superb quick release and plate, with double security mechanism, this head is a superb value for money. Really good.

Would be great for mirror less or a DSLR with no big lens. I will likely use it with a 4x5 field camera but a Toyo Rail Studio camera does not do so well on it. That is a long load but well within the claimed weight it supports. Seems to flex a bit much.

I use this head on my personal tripod, and it is so good, I ordered 2 for work. I have had it over 5 years, and still works just like new.

Manfrotto quality. Well engineered piece of equipment.

I liked this head in most ways, but I am selling it after owning it only a few months. I shoot spherical stitches, which require pointing the camera straight up. This lens only allows the camera to point up 30 degrees! Another very small gripe, one I could live with, is the locks tighten down funny.

Much larger than I expected, very professional feel. Super impressed and happy with this!

Positives: A head design is excellent, and easy to adjust the tilt angle and directions. Negatives: needs a rather strong grip to tighten the adjustments. Definitely not for those with small hands and afraid of heavier weight.
