This is a very well, but potentially over-engineered head. The action in all planes is silky smooth and the friction dials do a very good job of allowing you to get a low inertia movement in all the planes. It's heavy, but that's hardly surprising. If you're after a very precise pan & tilt head and can cope with some additional weight I recommend it.
One thing I have noticed is that if you want to use a lot of vertical angle (more Astro protography than nature), the mount will only move so far if you mount the camera or scope facing away from the handle you see on the top left in the product photo. If you mount in the other direction you can go almost vertical, but then the handle is out-front which is less intuitive to use. It's not detracted from my rating though, but worth bearing in mind.
