Manfrotto 3265 Grip Action Ball Head with Quick Release review by maxx
Review Date: 4/24/2006 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $99.95| Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very quick to adjust; strong; quick release plate; handy bubble level
Cons: A bit heavy and bulky

I love this tripod head. It's so quick to adjust (just pull the trigger, move it to the desired position and release), and it's strong enough to hold a medium sized SLR with a small to medium telephoto lens. I've had it for about 8 years with no problems. Highly recommended for when you don't need fine adjustment control.
