Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod Legs Only - Black (Accessory)
Tripod arrived yesterday and the 498RC2 ball head today. I have had a quick play and I must say that I am suitably impressed. The build quality is great and just oozes quality. I also purchased the 80cm unpadded tripod bag and the legs and head fit in really well. This is definitely one of my better purchases. I was toying with the idea of getting the 055xb but the pro version is definitely more versatile, as the centre column can go in the horizontal position. Obviously, it is not as stable in this mode but as long as you are sensible, it allows you to get close in awkward situations. Buy it - you won't regret it!!
