Got the K-20x about a year ago and enjoyed using it -- right up to when it broke. Let me be clear -- the fault was mine. I was loading my car, foolishly had my collapsed tripod leaning against the bumper when it slipped and hit the parking lot pavement.
I will reserve a "10" for those heads costing 3x more. This seems as close to a 10 without costing like one. Can handle light or heavy loads and is a good match for the
light but solid, fine tension control, load bearing
none so far
It's a nice head but a little small. The plate is definitely small or at least smaller than what I was used too. Its a close fit and doesn't slide on as quickly as my old one, but I will get used it. Seems well made.
The head is mated to the Sirui w-1004 tripod as a back up lightweight tripod. when trying to change the camera to the portrait format I was unable to get a 90 degree transition when dropping the ball into the slot.
I recently purchased the K30X ball head (bigger brother of the K20x), to use on my heavier Induro tripod. My Sony A7Rii with the somewhat heavy 70-300mm lens moves very smoothly, without any jerking. The quick release safety catch works on the L-brackets too!
I have owned numerous ballheads, including the high priced name brands. None are smoother in operation than this low priced gem!
This ball head has had tender, loving care and I have only owned this head for 3 months, only used less than 10 times, suddenly the ball head lock knob will not turn at all, head is completely locked and will not loosen. Beware!
I am impressed with the built quality of the K-20x. I've used a large Kirk ball head for ten years but needed a smaller and lighter one for a monopod. It's strong enough to support my Canon pro body and 70-200 lens. All movements are smooth.
This I purchased for my monopod, it definitely does the job I bought it for.
