      Note your half-ball handle length

          Comments about Varavon Half Ball Riser for 100mm Ball Head:

          Just got this to mount my new Manfrotto 504 HD onto a set of Manfrotto 475B sticks. The Varavon Riser, though simple in it's construction is solidly built, and I have no worries about it's ability to support my head and Sony NX5U. The price is unbeatable when compared to the Sachtler FB/150 Riser, and unlike the Manfrotto 325N, this still allows leveling of the head.

          *** PLEASE NOTE ***
          The half-ball locking handle on your head may not fit in the 4" clearance of this riser. That's the case with the stock handle on the 504 HD, which is about 5.5" long. It's not a huge deal, as Manfrotto (and others) offer smaller handles (the 319SH in the case of Manfrotto) for decent prices, and you can always rig something up yourself in a pinch (a 3/8" wing nut and large washer). It did catch me off guard, however, and now I'm waiting another week or so for my short handle.

                Simple product, but it's nicely machined and does the job.
