This is a beautiful piece of hardware and does everything better than I had expected. The one quibble is that the ball-locking lever extends below the base. This means if it's mounted in a constrained location (like on a Star Adventurer declination bracket) the lever may not have full freedom of...
I'm a fan of Manfrotto and this ball head is just one more example of why. It is a solid piece of equipment that does exactly what it is intended to do and does it well!. I had been using an older styled pan/tilt head and could not be happier about switching to a ball head. Operation is simple.
I messed around with a few other brands on sale and sent them back. Finally decided to spend a bit more and get the Manfrotto and this was a good lesson in value. This is a ballhead that is very well constructed and simply has a feeling of long lasting quality and endurance.
I have several Manfrotto tripods and interchange the heads depending on the task at hand. I purchased this head to work with a highly engineered watercolor field box which requires a sturdy, yet adjustable ball head mounted on a Manfrotto tripod (recommended by the box builder).
This was just the ball head to use with my Manfrotto MT190CXPRO4 tripod. I have a Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W which I love but it's too heavy for long hikes and climbs. The ball head was 1 lb less than my Manfrotto MHXPRO-3W. Just 1.2 lbs.vs 2.2 lbs. Works great with my Nikon 70-200 2.8 lens.
I had a grip ball head and the arthritis in my hands got to where I couldn't squeeze it. This XPRO is just what I need. It works just like it was advertised.
I am used to a three-way head. This is much quicker to use than that. Very happy with it so far.
The amount of weight that it can support is perfect for my setup of d850 + 200-500mm f5.6. So far, there hasnt been an issue with using this ballhead.
Im not sure how many stars to rate this at this point. I have just started testing the head, and I find that the play in the quick plate while Im moving the ball by pushing on the camera (after of course loosening the ball).
What a big difference from my first tripod. So smooth and easy to operate. Love the ballhead and tripod. Great purchase
