I am looking for a budget friendly head for my slider and was going to get the Velbon but it is OOS.
Can anyone recommend something comparable?

I ordered this head earlier this week. I figure its out of the same factory that the Velbon is out of just rebranded as it looks exactly like it..we'll see. It's coming from China so it'll be a few weeks before it gets here. I'll give you my thoughts when it gets here

Here's the only video I could find on youtube of the head:

Thanks for the video. It doesn't look too bad.
