I have a Manfrotto 055CXPRO4 Carbon Fibre Tripod with 322RC2 "Heavy Duty Grip Ball Head"
I'd like something sturdier, something tells me I should go for the 5 series as a "tripod for life". I could always use the manfrotto for times when the Gitzo is too heavy to carry.
Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to try out any of the Gitzos before purchase, I have a discount voucher AND Gitzo are offering cashback when I trade in my scrap velbon. Also, VAT goes up next year, so now would be a good time to buy.
I've been looking at the GT5541LS, any thoughts
Which ball head would be best?
