(From company literature) Manfrotto 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release. The 808RC4 streamlines our range of 3-way heads by incorporating new elements while maintaining all the features you loved. There are two balance springs in the vertical tilt (forward/backward) and horizontal tilt (left/right) movements. These springs enable you to more comfortably handle heavier camera loads (such as very long lenses) with minimal effort. Both springs can be turned off in case normal head operation is required. The head is comprised of aluminium and designed in a manner to support up to 8kg yet lightweight and small enough to pack in any camera kit. The standard quick release system is used to accommodate larger camera platforms which incorporates dual axis bubble levels to achieve level shots.

Manfrotto 808RC4 3-Way Pan/Tilt Head with Quick Release review by Artman57

Pros: Quality, ease of use
Cons: Height

Although a big fan of quality ballheads, I ended to buy this p&t head for my Manfrotto 055XPRO tripod

And I do not regret it at all. Very well constructed, ergonomic, and with a superb quick release and plate, with double security mechanism, this head is a superb value for money. Really good.
