Well I get straight to the point. I am looking for a new leveling base and tripod head. The leveling base is the most important part. It should be used with both of my Gitzo tripods (2 series and 5 series) Right now I have a old leveling plate which is most probably would more call a ballhead. What options are out there ? I have searched a bit but haven't found to much. Am I missing something ?
Now the seconds part is a new head, I am a little sick of ballheads and while I will keep mine, I'm looking for something different. The first stuff that comes to mind is the Cube, which won't happen. I don't see myself spending 1700EURs for it...... Than there is the Man. 405 which costs around 400 which i think is more realistic. I probably would have bought it already, however I really hate the cheap top of that thing. I mean Is the quick release really stable once one puts a RRS clamp on top ?
Besides these two options are there any more ?
I would appreciate your input, experiences and opinions.
