The GorillaPod 3K PRO Stand from Joby, with its anodized aluminum and patented metal socket technology, offers a durable 9.6-ounce stand with a load capacity of 6.6 pounds, ideal for mirrorless cameras and other photo/video accessories. The legs' ball-and-socket construction can wrap and grip securely around pipes, rails, and tree branches for a unique angle while capturing video or photo. At the same time, the stand holds its position on a flat surface, and you can fold it to a length of 9" to use it as a grip for a small digital/video camera. The black and charcoal colors of the stand match the BallHead 3K PRO, which can mount to the stand via its 1/4"-20 mount, to create an optimal kit.

How is this different from JOBY GorillaPod 3K Flexible Mini-Tripod which costs $25?
They improved the sturdiness and durability of the original 3K tripod. It is also slightly heavier and gives you the ability to attach lights or microphones separately if you are using this to make videos.

I have tried to find the base measurements of the JOBY GorillaPod 3K Pro. I wish to use another ball head manufacturer. I have even tried to research the Job 3K Pro ballhead to find its base measurements but to no avail. Anyone know?
The mounting base that the head goes on to is two inches and has a 1/4-20 mounting screw

Is the accra swiss plate a standard accra swiss plate? I want to use my L-Bracket so that I can keep my camera over the tripod instead of to the side so it doesn't tip over.
It is the width of a standard Arca-Swiss clamp but is rather small all around. I wouldn’t trust it with a large DLSR.

Is the legs (balls) made out of metal?
Is the legs (balls) made out of metal?
The joints are a hybrid of metal and plastic. The socket component of each ball joint is metal, while the inner ball component is made of ABS plastic.

I do macro photos of objects on the ground and want to see if this would allow the camera to be horizontal to the ground and low. The tip of my macro lens woud be about 1/2-1" above the object being photographed. Will this tripod do this?
It will; the bottom of the camera will be about 4" off the ground and it's lowest.

When I remove the small Arca-Swiss plate that ...
When I remove the small Arca-Swiss plate that comes with the Joby 3K Pro Kit, the remaining Arca-Swiss clamp on top of the Joby has a spring loaded pin that interferes with my A-S plates at the bottom of all my cameras/lenses. Can that pin be removed some how?
I tried various tapes to hold that pin down flat. Scotch tape does not hold it, black electric tape neither, nor does black Gorilla tape. That tiny spring underneath wins every time after 24 hours of pushing the pin up. I simply sawed the top part of that pin off as it cannot be removed by itself. To do so, I used a table top big vise to fasten the Joby arca clamp in and took a hand held vise to keep the pin from freely moving or rotating and sawed along the bottom of that pin at all angles with a small sharp metal cutting handsaw blade for a couple of hours, day in, day out until there was almost nothing left in the center of that pesky pin. Then a few jerks and twists just ripped the top 1-2 mm of it off and it can no longer intrude with my various Arca plates (all from RRS). I now can center my lenses with ease by sliding the plates left and right on the Joby 3K with that needless 'irremovable' pin shortened enough to stay down in its 'hole'. Maybe Joby could alter its design for this to become easier ?
