Yes they are great and of top quality like everything for that company. Expensive, but worth it - and made in the USA for lifetime usage:)

No matter what you buy from RRS it's top notch. And the people who work there are even better. Customer service is very big with me and when you combine a great product with great customer service it's a win win experience. I would never go anywhere else.

This thread and one other one here on POTN prompted me to do what I have been putting off for months. I ordered all the necessary stuff to convert my Manfrotto tripod head over. I ended up going with Kirk Enterprise Solutions because they are one of the only companies who make a one piece L-Bracket for my 60D. Kirk has two options: with or without a battery grip. Since several regs here have recommended them, I'm not going into this blind but I'm still a bit apprehensive since I'm also going to integrate my Newtown FR3 flash rotator bracket. This gets a bit involved but I think I was able to work it out with Gary at Kirk: http://www.kirkphoto.c​om/ (external link)

I called RRS a while ago, asking them if they had or were planning on developing an L-Bracket for the 60D and they said they do not currently have one and one isn't in the works. In my dreams, I'd have all RRS stuff starting with their legs.

On every body, they provide protection as well.

RRS BH55 is the sturdiest ballhead I have found to date..

I have found their customer service to be one of the best of any company I have ever dealt with.

a great bunch of people working there.

I am a customer for life..

I won't buy a camera until the RRS L plate's ready! (Scarcely an exaggeration.)

At times it must sound like I work for RRS. I don't

I use a RRS BH55 on my RRS TVC 33 tripod.
I use a RRS MH-02 LR head on my Gitzo monopod.
I use a RRS L plate on my EOS 5D3.
I use a RRS B2-FAB-F clamp to go from the L Plate to the BlackRapid sport.
Hold th pnone I use a Wimberley P20 quick rel plate for my collared lens.

Okay DonJuan I really do recomend the RRS BH-55.

What broke on your Cullmann? You mentioned it in the Cullmann thread but I don't recall the specifics.

I haven't had the Cullmann Magnesit 6 that long, about a month with the RRS B2 Pro II. Been nice so far but my rig doesn't load it up. The Magnesit head has 10 year warranty, did you send it to RTS?

The RRS plates are excellent and like others here, their CS is excellent.

Your experience mirrors mine wanting an L bracket for a gripped 60D. Kirk made 'em, RRS said there wasn't enough demand to warrant making them. So, when I went to get an L bracket for my 5D3, there was no choice. Same with the clamps for my tripod and monopod...and ball head for my monopod (BH-3)...Kirk all the way!
