    Comments about Majestic 1201 Tripod Gearhead with 6x7" Plate:

    Excellently engineered, smooth movement, made in America! This unit does not contain the swing unit to go from Horizontal to Vertical orientation. Found out after receiving, Called the manufacturer Bencher, Inc and they were able to sell me directly the Majestic 510 Swing Platform. Received the next day. Overall this unit works extraordinarily good. Highly recommend, but with the swing movement.
