question

Can the head be swapped for another one? Some reviewers said yes but I've heard others say you can't.
Asked by: Anonymous
The head unscrews from the center post. When doing so, you will see a 1/4 -20 male threaded portion sticking out of the center post. So as long as the replacement head has a 1/4 -20 female hole approx. 1/2 deep, it should work.
