GNN XB-52DL Ball Head

Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-lever Clamp

*Includes One FREE DP-60R Quick Detach Plate, $16.95 value. The dual mounting bolt design is a superior, zero twist connection point.

The new GNN XB-52DL is the perfect balance between weight, load capacity, and super low-profile height. These ball head specs are unmatched. The GNN XB-52DL is ideal for weight conscious individuals who still require a full featured ball head for tripod shooting. We made the GNN XB-52DL 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 24° of elevation adjustment, with approximately 50° of total vertical travel. The Sunwayfoto GNN XB-52DL Low-Profile Ball Head with Duo-lever Clamp is based on the original XB-52, and we replaced the Screw-Knob Clamp with DLC-60 Screw/Lever Combo Clamp. The screw knob side is for adjusting the width of the clamp, and the lever side is for locking the clamp quickly. The XB-52DL Low Profile Ball Head from Sunwayfoto is the larger of two ball heads in the XB line of low profile ball heads from Sunwayfoto. It features a very low center of gravity, a very high load capacity of 132 pounds, and an improved ball head design for smoother movements when changing tripod shooting position.


Features include:
  • Locking System is located on the side of the ball head, instead of the bottom. The whole center of gravity is lowered more than 15%.
  • Adopts geared locking structure, 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.

    Superior Quality Product

    Posted by Rob on 4th Jun 2021

    Mounted this ball head on a Pig Light and use a MARC M-LOK plate to secure my rifle. The entire set up is rock solid and stable. Adjustments are smooth and finitely tunable. Super happy with every product from Hog Saddle. And love the new green finish!

    Great Product

    Posted by Gerald Davis on 24th Jul 2019

    I ordered the XB52 Ball Head, Hog Saddle, Pig Tripod and these things are great! There was a lot of thought and care that went into these items. The fit and finish is top shelf. I have a Manfrotto 502 video head for my spotting scope and I feel that I could not have done better for my rifle and spotting scope support choices.
