This unit is in very nice shape and is fully functional. This was only used in the studio, on a camera stand shooting products on a table.It has never been used on location, and always with light weight cameras (no big stresses have been put on it). All movements are precise and operate like they did the day it left the factory. This is considered to be the best geared tripod head ever made and for good reason. Some of the highlights of its design include: 16.5LB working camera weight capacity, want to hold that DSLR or 8x10 camera steady? This will do both very well. Self arresting "snap lock" and geared movements - you can both quickly make gross adjustment and also fine tune with geared movements on all 3 directions. This means when the camera is in the right position you don't need to use any annoying lock nobs that always seem to slightly move the camera. This tripod also uses the most robust tripod plate system that I have come across (and this listing includes 2 tripod plates) - rock solid with its clicked in, fast and easy to remove. This even has 2 bubble levels on it for flexibility in mounting / camera position. Super durable construction - it will give you many decades of use. Please note that the rubber pads on each of the tripod plates have been removed to make a more solid connection with the camera. Please take a look at my other listings for more photography and tripod related gear.
