My K-20X has been an excellent performer. Even use it (carefully!) with a 5D3 and heavy Tamzooka 150-600 combo. In those instances I find I am more worried about the tripod that the ballhead. I use a Gitzo Traveler and feel it's footprint is too small.
ONLY beef I have is that when it is extremely cold (-20 degrees C or -5 degrees F or colder) the pin used to rotate the ballhead sometimes does not take hold.
I also find it is relatively heavy compared to my ultra-lightweight Gitzo.

I have fallen in love with a German made Kaiser 6011 Ball Head with an Arca Compatible clamp that I purchased used last year. It is a hefty head which weighs a bit under a pound and a half but, it is rated for an 8 kg. load (I like a head that is rated for about twice the package weight I plan to support with it). A used copy should run between $50 and $75. I use it on a modified SLIK travel tripod and I am thinking that I will get another to replace my Giottos MH1300 head that I use on my Giottos MT8180 Carbon Fiber legs.
