Glenn, the ballhead cannot be adjusted wider.
Some of you guys kill me. You'd spend $300 for a ballhead to sit on a tabletop tripod to sit in your jaguar...
This place reminds me of the guitar forums where a Les Paul isn't good enough so they have to spend $10,000 on a hand made boutique version and then spend all their time waxing poetic about the build quality and shimmer of the wood.
Nobody is saying you should have spent $300 (though that isn't excessive for a good ballhead IMHO) or that there was anything wrong with trying to save money. But $22?
I've owned three ball heads over a period of about 20 years. The first was a Bogen, the second was an Arca Swiss, the third and present is a Really Right Stuff head. The Bogen cost about a fourth of what the other two cost. The Arca Swiss was, and the RRS is, a pleasure to use. The Bogen was made well but it wasn't nearly as smooth as the other two, it was kind of "sticky." Which meant it was almost impossible to make very fine adjustments of the kind that can be critical for architecture, products, etc. IMHO ball heads are one area where you do indeed get what you pay for.
