              Seems rugged enough, but the ball head snapped off after half a dozen uses. This is a pretty major flaw.

                          Screw bolt snapped off inside my 5dmk2 body the first time I tried to test this product. No excessive force was used!

                          The only reason this gets a star at all is because it won't let you submit a no star review.
