This is a usable ball head however it does not work well with long lenses. I've had it for several years and am now going to have to spend more $$ to get a head that does not drupe. It is very difficult to use with a my 70-300MM zoom lens. I can not get it to stay where I focus.
I bought this ball head for my trip to South Dakota. I wanted to get some good landscape shots in the Badlands and the Black Hills. The ball head was easy to set up and use and I got some great shots. I also got some great shots of the Buffalo and wild horses.
haven't used it too much yet, but appears that it is well made
I use this ball head on my U212 slik tripod and it works great! I have a 85-300mm lense on my DSLR Nikon camera and it holds all of it very well.
I have a Slik Pro 500DX that came with a pan tilt head, and while the tripod legs are excellent, I wasn't too crazy about the pan tilt head that came with it. I don't do anything in the way of shooting video so I decided to upgrade to a ballhead.
This is an easy to use quick release head with a good range of motion. It holds my 270 zoom lens securely and, it fit my 25 year old SLIK tripod base!
I have this atop a a Slik Pro 634CF and it works well. While it would be nice to have a tension knob as well as a locking knob, the single tension/locking knob does its job well.
This is a very well designed and manufactured product. Heavy duty construction should last for years. Ball rotates very smoothly. I use relatively heavy equipment (Nikon 300s and Nikkor 17-55 F2.8 lens). This is a heavy camera and lens but this head holds it securely.
I have a really nice, older SLIK tripod. I like everything about it, except the old-fashioned, labor intensive head. It was so complicated to switch from horizontal to vertical and visa-versa that I just didn't use the tripod.
I have been using the SBH280E with a SLIK PRO700DX tripod for nature shots around my property, it's rock solid when locked in,moves as smooth as silk when you need it to, and locks right back up. No creep, no slips.
