I had the Z1, I absolutely hated the flip lock on it.
I upgraded to the BH55 and never looked back. For me it is much easier to control, mount, set up, take down etc. The fit and finish I find much more pleasing on the BH55 as well.
You don't have to buy it with the flip-lock if you don't like that It comes with the normal screw lock also
Oh I know. I like the convenience of the flip lock though, just feel the Arca is nowhere up to spec, especially not compared to the RRS lock mechanism.
I have lever release or flip locks on my RRS BH55, BH40, and the leveling bases for my TVC24 and TVC33, all phenomenal.
The Z1 is indeed a fine ballhead, but if you want locks, I would recommend RRS all the way. If you like the normal screw lock, they become closer in function. I still feel RRS is overall better in quality. In my experience of course.
