Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-lever Clamp
*Includes One MARC-QD Quick Detach Plate, $40 value. The dual mounting bolt design is a superior, zero twist connection point.
The new GNN XB-44DL is the perfect balance between weight, load capacity, and super low-profile height. These ball head specs are unmatched. The GNN XB-44DL is ideal for weight conscious individuals who still require a full featured ball head. We made the XB-44 even shorter by machining off the neck of the ball head (creating the proprietary GNN series). This reduces damaging stress/leverage to internal parts, increases stability, yet still allows for 23° of elevation adjustment, with approximately 48° of total vertical travel. Our GNN XB-44DL Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-Lever Clamp is based on the original XB-44, and we replaced the Screw-Knob Clamp with DLC-50 Screw/Lever Combo Clamp. The screw knob side now provides initial adjustment of the width of the clamp, while the lever side allows the user to quickly lock or un-lock the clamp. The XB-44DL Low Profile Ball Head is the smaller of two ball heads in the XB line of low profile ball heads. It features a very low center of gravity, a very high load capacity of 88 lbs, and an improved ball head design for smoother movements when changing position.
- Locking System located on the side rather than the bottom of the ballhead, lowering the entire center of gravity by more than 15%. Adopts a geared locking structure, and higher locking strength.
- Specially designed panning base, smooth operation.
- Elliptical ball for progressive resistance and avoiding suddenly sliding down.
- All metal knobs for reliability and long term durability.
- Special structure makes it the lightest of its class. 360° panning movement with calibrated precision, precisely capture overlapping panoramic images.
- Compatible with Really Right Stuff (RRS), Wimberley, Jobu Design, Arca Swiss, Kirk Enterprises, Markins, Photo Clam etc.
- Ideal for Gitzo, SLIK, Manfrotto, Sirui, Benro, RRS tripods.
