Default Induro SA-12 or SA-23 Ballheads

Anyone have thoughts on these heads? I'm looking for a temporary solution until I have the funds for a more expensive RRS or Arca Swiss or Markins solution. Thoughts greatly appreciated guys, thanks.

I have no personal experience, but have seen one bad review where the ball got all scratched up for some reason.

Personally, If I'm spending less than $200 on a ball head, I'm getting this one... in fact, I think I'm ordering it today:

Note that Induro is the American brand of Benro...so you can lookup reviews on the Benro heads as well and they should apply.

The bad review was for the DM series not the SA series which are very different heads... so I was wondering. I'll check out the Benro reviews.
