    Really Right Stuff TA-3-LC-HK reviews

    TA-3 Leveling Base with Lever-Release Clamp and Hook is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality as Expected Really Right Stuff has always made incredible products, and this is no exception. The fit and finish are perfect and the utility that the base provides has been extremely valuable for me. Only thing I wish was different was how quickly the head engages when you turn the knob. It goes from no tension to full tension extremely quickly, which makes it more difficult to make minute changes. Note: If you use this and realize you need a standard 3/8 stud for a tripod head, you'll have to buy a replacement plate. I made that mistake.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have for pano-gimbal work and video work. If you use a Really Right Stuff Pano-Gimbal head OR the Really Right Stuff FH-350 fluid-head OR by pure habit use a leveling base with a ball-head, I highly recommend this leveling base. The clamp is crucial for switching between various heads. If working at minimum height with your Series 3 tripod is of utmost importance, I recommend ordering the Leveling Base with the 2.5 handle directly through Really Right Stuff (as B&H doesn't sell that model). The 4.5 handle with thehook in this model is a bit long for ground clearance. If you value having the hook as well the extended handle for easier adjustments, this is for you. Note: All the handles can be sold separately, so you can buy this leveling base, buy another handle, and switch the different handles in and out depending on your needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, well designed. Reeks of quality. This is built with high standards and precision. I like the long handle, its really easy to grab and make micro adjustments. If you like to lay your tripod flat you may want to opt for the shorter or �no stem version. I put this on a RRS Versa Series Tripod, but should work perfect for a Gitzo or ProMedia Gear tripod. I use a Gimba head and a BH-55 ball head on it, the quick release handle is secure and high quality. This really simplifies the leveling process, no more fussing with leg adjustments. If you are only going to use one type of Tripod Head you probably won't need the quick release clamp. HIGHLY Recommend
