The CB-38FTR Ball Head from FLM is a high capacity tripod head which features FLM's patented Tilt-Lock function and an independent 360° panning base.
The CB-38FTR stands 3.5" high and features a maximum load capacity of 55 lb, while weighing in at 15.4 oz. The dual lock design uses two separate knobs to control the movement of the ball and the 360° panning base, giving the user greater control. A separate tension knob adjusts the drag on the ball, allowing the user to slow or hasten the re-positioning of their camera. The FTR series also utilizes FLM's patented Tilt-Lock function which allows the user to lock the ball in all directions but one, allowing the ball to move along a straight line similar to a pan/tilt head.
The top mounting plate is covered in a friction reducing cork layer, which protects your equipment and prevents unwanted shifting and twisting. The top mounting thread is a reversible 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 stud which can be flipped to accommodate most cameras and camcorders.
