Kirk manufactures the BH-1 ball head for precision and rugged stability...guaranteed!
Based on the suggestions and urgings of many photographers, Kirk Enterprises offers its own precision ball head designed for a lifetime of trouble-free performance. Featuring the same efficiency of design and rugged construction that make other Kirk products so popular, the Kirk Ball Head features our Satisfaction Guarantee and Five-year Warranty--the best in the industry. Of course it's American Made right in Angola, Indiana.
Weighing in at only 30 ounces, this ball head features silky smooth ball-and-socket action for complete control--just by releasing and locking a single knob. Two smaller knobs control the 360-degree panning base and the amount of ball friction. The Model BH-1 features a universal quick-release platform with a built-in spirit level that accepts all Arca-style plates and mounts. All external components are crafted from tough 6061-T aircraft aluminum including the solid, captive-design knobs, and the internal metal parts are stainless steel and brass to avoid corrosion. The ballcup is produced from self-lubricating Delrin composite, and the tripod socket accepts 3/8-inch thread. This could be the last ball head you ever need to buy.
This price also includes a special universal Arca-style quick release body/lens plate (PZ-3), so you can upgrade your system to quick-release immediately!
