Markins Q-Ball M10

1817
Review Date: Nov 5, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: sturdy, simple, durable
Cons:
it's a little expensive, but is still worth every cent

I bought the M10 after reading about the Markins heads on Nikonians. It took some work to convince myself to spend 350 on a head but I didn't want to slack. I've wasted too much on crap equipment and now I try to get the right product the first time.

As far as use goes, it's a pleasure to use. Once I set the tension to the "sweet spot" for the rig I'm using there is no need to lock it down or loosen it to recompose. I have not used any other of the top tier ballheads (kirk, RRS, ArcaSwiss) but cannot imagine them being any better than the Markins.
