great head. simple to use, lightweight, sturdy, and super smooth. very nice for the backcountry
Just received it and haven't taken it out on a trip yet but after putting both my binos and my 85mm spotter on this head I can already tell it will be a gamechanger and major upgrade from my previous ball head.
My previous tripod had a ball mount, and this video head makes glassing so much easier. It’s solid and buttery smooth. I especially like the safety lock that prevents expensive equipment from accidentally falling out. The knob that locks the release plate can be A little difficult to disengage because it’s so close to the handle, but that’s just constructive feedback if S&S talks with Sirus.
Some of the righting knobs are hard to use because their location. Very smooth movement and I like adaptability to other devices.
Just upgraded from a vortex high country tripod to the Slik 634, and wanted a quality head to put on it. There are so many options out there, I really didn’t know what to go with, or how to get the most for my money. After talking with the guys at S&S, they were confident that this would be the perfect head. They shipped it within a couple hours or ordering, and I had it within a few days. As for the quality of the head, I couldn’t be happier with it. Super smooth and balanced. I’m also able to use my field optics research adapter for my binos, and rotate the handle however I want for different scenarios. I highly recommend this head to anyone who is unsure what they really need. I also highly recommend purchasing as much as possible through these guys, because they know what they’re talking about, and the customer service was the best I’ve encountered yet.
