Tripods head type?

Recommended Posts

What do you prefer? Why?? I’d like to try the pistol grip from Outdoorsman. Seems like a pretty handy setup. Curious what you all have tried and like. Not looking at a brand specific but type or style.

i used to have the outdoorsmans pistol grip with panner and didn't like it, 20 years ago i had a manfrotto 128 and went back to that on both of my tripods.

I have a Manfrotto pistol grip.  I only use it for a spotter while shooting.  It does not work well for glassing.

I have a couple Manfrotto pan heads too.  Night and day better for glassing.

Por Master Pan Head. Very stable, the arm for vertical panning is a little awkward.

A quality two way pan head with fluid movement is best.  Get a good one and don't look back.  For a light, compact option that will handle a lot of weight consider a quality panning ball head.  I've used quite a few different tripod heads over the years and this is what I prefer.  Pistol grip heads, nada bueno IMO.
