Velbon - I rate it middle of the roadJan 28, 2007
By C. Hannah
It's just okay, there are better out there. I don't like the adjustment for the vertical movement. When you tighten it where you want it, it shifts slightly.

Excellent QualityJul 17, 2010
I actually bought this about two years ago to replace a the broken head of my tripod. I've been on numerous trips since then and have used it extensively. It is still in perfect condition and none of the joints have loosened. Definitely recommended.

Excellent budget head.Dec 12, 2010
A very serviceable head for a compact tripod/scope combo.
Very light, smoothly slewed, locks exactly into place, with QR plate included.
Excellent value for the money.
Great product!Sep 11, 2013
By JOSEPH R. SOTO JR
I purchased this head and slik tripod for use for scouting/hunting trips. I have vortex kaibab binos 15x56. So far everything is as advertised. Silky smooth movement and seems to handle weight of set up easily. Has withstood rain and wind w/ no problem. The price was right and would highly recommend. There are better products out there for a lot more $$, again this set up is far exceeds its bargain price.
Good mount for the moneyJul 17, 2012
This is the only mount I've found that offers smooth panning and strength to hold my Swarovski Birding Scope to my tripod. This isn't a cheap, plastic mount that sticks and binds while scanning or panning for wildlife. The turning handle locks the movement of the scope very good, if you turn it tightly. It holds up to the weight of the scope and the scope locks to the mount very tight. (I always have a piece of heavy string tied from the scope to the neck of the mount, just in case...) If I were to make this mount, I'd have the handle closer to parallel to the plane of the mount, which would allow the user to aim the camera or scope at a higher elevation. As it is, if I aim the scope very high, the handle sometimes interferes with the base of the tripod. It's not critical, as I just tilt the tripod if I want to view something overhead. Overall, this strong, metal, well-built mount has the smoothest operation that I've used. A good product for the money.
