Heh, ya know, if it weren't for the title this thread would still probably be only one page. :lol:

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

By some girl I met online when I was 15

On a serious note, interesting responses as I am in the market for a tripod and head sometime soon... I've been looking at the 498RC2. Anyone have experience with it?

I use one on my old Manfrotto 190Pro tripod, it does a good job, on
small to mid size lenses. But I've replaced mine with a couple much light
and stronger Gitzo Tripods with Markin Heads. For traveling I have the
Gitzo 1541T and a Markings Q3T head. It's small, light and as strong
as the Manfrotto setup. But at half the weight. I fly a lot and it's the
best thing since sliced bread and tucks away nicely. For the big stuff
I picked up a Gitzo 3541 and a Markins Q20 Ballhead. Again it's lighter
than the Manfrotto but handles almost 3 times the load. But they come
at a premium. Some for the name, and some for the excellent quality.

If you are just starting out and money is a limiting factor look at the
Manfrotto. If you can afford it and are sure you're going to stick with it
you may want to look at a nice Gitzo Carbon Fiber Tripod and a Markins
Ball Mount. In either case they will both last you a life time. It's more
a matter of overall weight, size and what you think you're going to do
with it now, and in the future.

I just bought the last set of tripod legs I hope to ever buy (RRS TVC-33). I will be buying the RRS BH-55 and hope it lasts for many, many years! At the moment I have a Manfrotto 488RC2 which has been the best head I've ever received :p
