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 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 FLM Centerball series ballhead is individually tested for assured smooth movement and lockdown strength.

      Comments about FLM Centerball 58 FT:

      Extremely solid, precise, well machined piece of gear. The knobs have a very smooth feel. Great value for money as well.
      Anything comparable costs upwards of $1000.00.
