    The RRS website shows a Full Size Screw Knob option for the BH-30. That option is not shown on the B&H website. Is it an option from B&H?
    Asked by: MICHAEL
    My ball head is exactly the same as on the RRS web site, and the B&H site. Works great, used for trip to Italy in April. The only difference I see is on RRS website, one photo shows knob with long shank when all the rest show short shank on the knob. The knob is perfect.

    question

    The BH-30 doesnt have the ball tension adjustment. Has this been a problem?
    Asked by: Gerald
    No, not having a ball tension adjustment option has not been an issue with the Really Right Stuff BH-30 Ball Head with Full-Size Lever-Release Clamp, B&H # REBH30LRII. Really Right Stuff offers a wide range of ball heads, some with ball tension adjustment options, and some without the ball tension adjustment feature. If you require ball tension adjustment, I would recommend purchasing the Really Right Stuff BH-40 Ball Head with Full-Size Lever-Release Clamp, B&H # REBH40LRII, for your usage needs.

    I want to use this with a Gitzo 1555 (Traveller). Does the head with lever clamp allow legs to fold up around it? What about with full size lever plate?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It will with the compact lever; however, it won't sit all the way flush like without it or with the Gitzo traveler head. Additionally, you may need to get a different bag because of this... the RRS Compact Bag works with the combo.

    What is the diameter across the base? I am considering this for a monopod head.
    Asked by: Guy
    Is perfect! I use this with a Nikkor 200mm 2f VR2 and is amazing in one monopod. I suggest one Gitzzo.
