        Comments about FEISOL CB-30C Ballhead with QP-144750 Release Plate:

        This ball head works very well with my monopod. The friction knob allows me to set just the right amount of tension and the arcs swiss quick release provides the added flexibility of not having to change the base plate on my camera when I need to use my tripod. Very light weight, but sturdy at the same time.

        If you are expecting the same capabilities as a $300-$400 ball head you will be let down, but it serves the purpose I need on my monopod.

          Comments about FEISOL CB-30C Ballhead with QP-144750 Release Plate:

          I purchased this to go with my Feisol travel tripod and have thus far been pleased with the performance. The friction control is quite nice and superior to the ball head I have on my larger tripod, allowing for nice smooth adjustments. Looking forward to backpacking with this over the summer.

            Comments about FEISOL CB-30C Ballhead with QP-144750 Release Plate:

            Small ball head, solid and with a good load capacity. It's perfect for travel with a light tripod. I have Feisol Traveler CT-3441S Rapid tripod (good for people 5'7 feet or less). The feet are reversible with CB-30C ballhead only. With a widder ballhead, the legs not close completely for the storage.Once the tightening knob clear, it's possible to make panning. The tension knob is very effective. For travel and everyday's use, it's a good buy. It's very well built.
