GNN FB-52 Ball Head

*Includes One free DP-60R Quick Detach Plate*

The GNN FB-52 is the strongest model of the FB series. It's easy to carry, operate, and provides customers with a stable and smooth user experience. The FB-52 is machined from T6061 aerospace grade aluminum alloy and finished with an OD Green Type 3 Hard Anodizing. Compared with other models of the same series, the GNN FB-52 has the largest ball joint diameter for extended service life. By machining off the neck of the ball head (creating the GNN series), this reduces damaging stress/leverage to internal parts, increases stability, and allows for 22° of elevation adjustment. Approximately 46° of total vertical travel.

  • Adopts geared locking structure, higher locking strength.
  • Specially designed panning base ensuring smooth operation.
  • All metal knobs for reliability and long term durability.
  • 360° panning movement with calibrated precision.

    Just recently received this product, so far it has been performing to expectations. Haven't used a saddle on it yet for shooting, mostly optics.

    The GNN-FB-52 ball head compliments this tripod system.

    Posted by Jim Mann on 29th Apr 2019

    The GNN-FB-52 is a great and well built addition for this system. It's actually built like a tank and it's rated to support 44 pounds. It's a very stable ball head platform to shoot from too. While you're at it, buy a few extra DP-60R quick release plates which are a perfect match for this system.

    Excellent quality ball head

    Posted by Eric Spear on 12th Jul 2018

    I purchased this ball head as it appeared to be the best choice between built sturdy and price. I can't comment on durability because I just received it two days ago and haven't had a chance to use it. Upon inspections though, the ball moves super-smoothly and locks up tight with minimal friction applied. I choice this ball head as I was looking for something to mount my AR-50 on and this one will handle that task. Very nice. Will definitely by again if I need another.

    Couldn't have just one!!!

    Posted by Greg Rumsey on 17th May 2018

    I purchased one of these already and couldn't do without a second one for my other tripod. So, I purchased another one! I highly recommend if you buy a tripod from these guys you will want a FB-52 to complete the assembly it's the only way to go.

    Had to wait a few weeks to get this Ball head, but boy, was it worth the wait. Very functional, very smooth and very very well made. Highly recommend!

    As it was recommended by Shadow Tech on the website, this ball head is the best bang for your buck! And works well with the Hog saddle and the 0311 Tripod. So I bought the whole setup, and I'm really pleased with the quality of all 3 components! The FB-52 itself is very high quality and simple to use. The clamping force on it is strong as well and you don't really have to crank on the nob to lock it down, a couple of twists of the nob and it is rock steady even with a 20lb rifle! I also like that it moves really smooth up and down or panning left to right even with some tension on the ball. I recommend this ball head to anyone looking for a good tripod setup for hunting, competition, or whatever!!!
