Right now I have a Manfroto 055XPROB tripod, and put on a Benro J1 ballhead. I find that there is still some creep when using a larger lens such as my 70-200 and 100-400 lens.
I am in the process of buying a Benro Travel Angel C2692TB1 carbon fiber tripod/mono pod so that I don't have the weight to lug with the 055 but I'd still like to get a better ball head for the 055.
I am thinking that I need a bigger ball but really don't have the cash after the tripod purchase for a RRS or Markins. I remember several years back there being a slew of posts from people buying larger ballheads off ebay that they really liked.
I am wondering if anyone can suggest a good make/brand to look for.
