This FLM ballhead is simple, elegant and traditional in appearance with a two-tone finish and features a large easy-grip knob for ball control, and an additional control knob for friction control. In addition, the head features a calibrated panning base, with a independent panning lock.

This version also features PTF™ (Patented Tilt Function). This means that when operating the tilting function the ball can only be rotated around its center axis. The ball joint is now locked and will only provide 2-D tilting operation.

Manufactured in Germany to exacting standards, each component is milled from a solid block of aluminum and computer machined to tolerances within .01mm. Each ballhead is tested for smooth movement and lockdown strength. Includes 1/4-20" to 3/8" conversion screw.

    FLM Centerball 38 FT... a great panning ball head

    By PER

    from Warsaw IN USA

    Comments about FLM Centerball 38 FT:

    There are more expensive ball heads available of course,however this head is very much quality and precision made,both in appearance and performance.I've had it for a little over a year and really enjoy using it.I've used it to follow birds in flight with my 500mm telephoto and it works as smooth as silk.I liked it so much I bought my son one just like it and he feelsthe same way.

    Expertise: High end amateur (once in awhile for money)
