        Comments about Manfrotto 500BALLSH 100mm Half-Ball with Short Locking Handle:

        Very well built! Strong, sturdy, great construction. I am using this at the end of my jib. When our jib is fully loaded and we move it from spot to spot...sometimes use lose being level. The only way to level it would be to take most of it apart and re-level the tripod...not very practical. With this half-ball, all I have to do is re-level at the point of the camera with takes about 20 seconds tops!

        Comments about Manfrotto 500BALLSH 100mm Half-Ball with Short Locking Handle:

        It does what I need it to do... Replace an old and damaged 100 half-ball. The change out was simple and the new piece is very solid. No concerns that it can handle the higher weight loads I shoot with.

        Only reason its not a 5 star is the tiedown handle. At times it can be difficult to grip and tighten compared to the models that have "fingers". But that is very minor overall.

                  There's not much you can say to review such a simple product... either they work or they don't. The Manfrotto half-ball works just fine, just as it should. I bought the short-handle version of it, which seems more than plenty long enough. Frankly I'm not sure why anyone would prefer the long-handle version.

                        Bought this to use with a Cinevate Pegasus Carbon Dolly, it's less than 1/2 the price of the Cinevate version. The locking grip is too long to fit when the dolly is used alone as a table top dolly but, a through hole 3/8" 16 knob from the hardware store makes it fit perfectly, you may already have one on your folding lawnmower handle. Remove the concave cup from the top of the grip and use it with the 3/8 16 knob and you're all set.

                            Well built and rugged. Have a few of these units and they have traveled around the world...3 times.
                            Through baggage handlers to the middle of Kenya. Built to last.
