Product Highlights
  • Single-Lever Pan & Tilt Locking
  • Extremely Strong Ball Locking
  • Supports Loads Up to 33 lb
  • Weighs Just 7.4 oz

The Redged RP-2 Professional Ball Head is a simple, very lightweight ball head. Thanks to its extremely strong ball locking, you can attach just about any camera to its 1/4"-20 stud – or install a quick-release assembly (not included). The RP-2 head is rated to support loads up to 33 lb, and it's been tested to have a 99 lb locking force.

A single lever engages both the pan & tilt locking of the head. There's a 90° slot for easy tilting to portrait orientation. The RP-2 head connects to a tripod via either a 1/4"-20 or a 3/8"-16 stud – a reducer bushing is included to convert the larger thread for 1/4"-20 connections.

      Comments about Redged RP-2 Professional Ball Head:

      The specs on this are great, lightwieght, good weight capacity and reasonable on the wallet. Overall the finish is nice and the construction appears to be good. The lock and release is quick, it takes about 1/4 a turn to enable free positioning. BUT and there always is right? Although it moves very freely, it is not smooth. I was shocked how it felt out of the box. Their video says they use "Teflon for lubrication". If this is Teflon lubrication/coating, it isn't what I associate with smooth moving parts. Maybe with use it will smooth over. If you want silky smooth feeling out of the box, this one isn't. If you can live with the coarsnes for the clamping capabilities, this has potential. A Giotto's 1302 for [$] more is a nicer alternative that offers pan and friction adjustments. The 1302 is reasonably smooth out of the box. It has a lighter load rating though.
