I just did a video review of the new for 2013 Vanguard PH-111V 2 way fluid pan head. I have been extremely impressed with the head so far and definitely plan on using it this fall. I have been using the Promaster 6160 for the last 3 years and it has been a great pan head for me. The Vanguard is better in every way, smoother adjustments, locking adjustments, locking quick release plate, more compact and LIGHTER by 2 oz! If you are looking for a great lightweight 2 way fluid pan head to run a spotting scope, binos or video camera off I don't think there is a better option out there.
