    FLM CB-38 reviews

    CB-38FTR Professional FT Series Ball Head with SRB-40 QR Clamp is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxury Ball Head I can't say enough good things about FLM. I bought this ball head to accompany my cp26-L4s tripod (carbon fiber) and adore the system. Precision engineering, top quality materials and fit. It is a gorgeous piece of equipment. Once you understand the operation of the dials it is simple and intuitive to use. I don't even look at it. It took a little time to initially get the hang of it (but that was made easy by watching a video online). One dial sets the tension of ball head movement (so you can have heavy gear on the tripod and it won't flop but you can easily reposition it to frame the perfect shot). A second dial locks the position securely once you've finalized your framing. Plus there are other dials for panning and moving the camera up and down in a single plane. The dials on the head are positioned such that you can fold the FLM legs around the tripod head without bashing the legs / head (you have to orient the head and legs but they all fit together smoothly). This allows for a smaller folded tripod system (length)and the configuration I have will fit in my carryon luggage. The thing I like best about the whole tripod system is I really don't have to ever think about it. The tripod legs unscrew so I can use a single hand to release and retract a leg (you can grab all the screws in your hand simultaneously and release or retract them simultaneously). I'll go to an uneven slope and just drop the legs with three quick wrist turns. Then where the legs touch the ground, I can tighten the unit for a perfectly stable shooting platform. Meanwhile the ball head is holding my camera securely. I never worry about my gear flopping and everything is so quick to adjust and readjust as shooting needs change. When I need to go I tighten down the camera and maybe shorten the legs and just move. It is so stable and I can act quickly and efficiently. I am so happy with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality engineering I bought this as a travel alternative to my RRS BH-55 ballhead which is twice as heavy. It is extremely well made and top quality. It is rated at 25kg and the BH-55 is rated at 23kg. The clamping force is achieved due to lower gearing on the knob which means it needs a bit more turning than other ballheads but it is a minor issue to get clamping that is adequate for a 500mm lens. I have coupled it with an FLM CP30-L3S tripod and expect it will be a more than adequate substitute to my Gitzo 3543XLS and BH-55 which is over 1kg heavier. The tilt and pan functions also work very well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome ball head This is a very well made ball head, quality is top notch. The 15 degree stop pan feature is awesome you don't have to look at it just feel the stops. The 4 knobs might put some off but you get use it . I have the larger version CB-55 FTR so I was already familiar with the operation of the head. But this one I put it on a Gitzo GIGT2545 Travler tripod for a excellent light wieght combo.
