It's just okay, there are better out there. I don't like the adjustment for the vertical movement. When you tighten it where you want it, it shifts slightly.

I actually bought this about two years ago to replace a the broken head of my tripod. I've been on numerous trips since then and have used it extensively. It is still in perfect condition and none of the joints have loosened. Definitely recommended.

A very serviceable head for a compact tripod/scope combo.
Very light, smoothly slewed, locks exactly into place, with QR plate included.
Excellent value for the money.

This is the only mount I've found that offers smooth panning and strength to hold my Swarovski Birding Scope to my tripod. This isn't a cheap, plastic mount that sticks and binds while scanning or panning for wildlife. The turning handle locks the movement of the scope very good, if you turn it tightly. It holds up to the weight of the scope and the scope locks to the mount very tight. (I always have a piece of heavy string tied from the scope to the neck of the mount, just in case...) If I were to make this mount, I'd have the handle closer to parallel to the plane of the mount, which would allow the user to aim the camera or scope at a higher elevation. As it is, if I aim the scope very high, the handle sometimes interferes with the base of the tripod. It's not critical, as I just tilt the tripod if I want to view something overhead. Overall, this strong, metal, well-built mount has the smoothest operation that I've used. A good product for the money.
