But as soon as I felt the silky smooth operation of this head, which has a special WS coating on the ball, I was hooked. It is the reason I switched from using RC4 plates to Arca Swiss, and it is why I fitted Arca Swiss adapters to my Manfrotto geared heads.It's truly stunning in operation as well as appearance. It's complete with its original box and padded pouch. The only marking I can see of any note is on the tripod mount, from where I unfortunately left the grub screw protruding a little bit too far before I screwed the head onto the tripod top plate (see photo) - and annoyingly I just did the same thing with the new fluid head! Luckily it's not visible when it's in use. NB: I also have a GT3541 tripod for sale - it's an ideal complement for this head.
