GNN XB-44DL Ball Head


Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-lever Clamp

*Includes One DP-60R Quick Detach Plate, $16.95 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.


Features include:
  • 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.

    This ball head is amazing! If you're like me, and will pay almost anything for quality products, then search no more. This ball head is exceptional. It is in fact green in color, and the quality is top notch. If had the choice between this ball head, and any other regardless of price, I would buy this one. Get one! You won't be disappointed.

    This ball head is the best one I have ever used. Snipers finally have something that can handle the weight of a heavy rifle without fear of the head flexing or breaking. Fantastic work as always.

    This is a great quality ball head for the price. It is very steady and easy to operate. This is the perfect ball head for the 700X tripod.
