The weight of your camera is balanced by the only spring balanced ball head design in the world. The patented spring balance design is incorporated in both balls for a gimbal-like range of movement without the risk of lens flop. Each ball provides tension and locks individually for precision control of your lens movement.

Double Ball Design

The function of the large 66mm outer ball is for panning motion and leveling the head, and it features a Teflon sleeve for smooth movement. The 45mm inner ball operates on the remaining pan and tilt axes, acting as a two-way head nestled within the outer ball

Patented Spring-Balanced Tilt Mechanism

The weight of the camera is balanced by a patented spring mechanism to provide effortless tracking motion

Arca-Swiss Style Quick Release

Compatible with Arca-Swiss style quick release plates, available separately

I just purchased this. It does not appear to be able to lock the large ball. Is ther ea way to completely lock the ball head? Or do I have a faulty unit?
Asked by: Allyson
All of the other comments are valid. In addition, if you notice that the hex screw inside of the black lever is loose, then it may require (moderate) tightening with a hex key/Allen wrench. But please try the other remedies above first.

An you use it with monopod?

An you use it with monopod?
Asked by: Huve
Though it can be done, I havent found ball heads to be as easy to control on monopods as tilt heads. One already has the ability to pan with a monopod by simply rotating the support. Though you can easily lock the panning ball on the FlexShooter, if you would need to continually adjust the lock for the larger ball (as say for birds in flight) that could be more tedious than a tilt head. That said, this is my fave tripod head for general use.

Can this be used in place of a Gimbal head?

Can this be used in place of a Gimbal head?
Asked by: Felita
The Flexshooter is strong enough to cameras and large telephoto lenses, but its primarily function is to stiffly lock your gear into position. If your primary need for a gimbal is similar, this can replace it, but if you are using a gimbal for wildlife tracking horizontally/diagonally/vertically, this might be inadequate.

If possible can you suggest a optional Arca Swiss style clamp? i really do not care for the X Cross Clamp Style??
Asked by: John
I don't believe the clamp is interchangeable. Only the black nob tightens the Arca plate to the head. The silver screw clamp that you see on the left side of the plate actually provides the fine adjustment for loosening/tightening of the ball mechanism itself. I could not recommend messing around with precise and delicate mechanism.
