    VariZoom CHICKENHEAD reviews

    ChickenHead Flat Base Fluid Head is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for the money IMHO Would buy again, as I have two now :) What else can you say for the money this thing rocks, and even if it were more, its still a worthy addition for someone's shooting options. Highly recommended... What else can I say except for the money this thing works very well. I use this with an INDURO tripod and even Richard Grove from Tragedy and Hope commented how amazing it worked and operated on top of the INDURO. Buy it as a second or third fluid head. I also use this on a crane set up for certain angles. Nice quality. Its not as robust as my 504HD but it works well and stores nicely. Price will not break the bank. Go for it....

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke twice right after two years. hi, I bought two of these monopods and after two plus years both are broken. I treat my equipment with great care but still they broke. The head started leaking and grinding until it finally became unusable. One of the toes plastic fittings snapped on the other pod rendering the toe useless. I am going back to Bogen monopods which last much longer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for a flat base fluid head Purchased the VariZoom flat base fluid head for occasional use with light weight camera sliders that have 3/8"-16 mounts. It does the job for smaller ENG and Cinema cameras, and mounts to sliders that won't work with ball heads. Better quality than the Benro S4 or Manfrotto 501HDV heads, in my opinion.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vari-zoom chicken head I LOVE the Vari-Zoom jib and should have purchased this fluid head with the unit a year ago. It's frustrating the jib won't accept a standard bowl style fluid head and requires this proprietary head... But it's a good piece of gear and makes this rig complete. Good piece of gear.
