I paid quite a lot for Kirk MPA-2, but don't regret it. I can't really imagine to use any weaker head in combo with a heavy lens (like Sigma 150-500 or even heavier.... like the announced new Pentax FF lenses).

I'm glad you got one you like. I'm satisfied with what I bought also, using it with my 55-300, and my 400, on my monopod. So far I have absolutely no complaints on this one.

RedGed RP-3 ballhead

My Redged RP-3 ballhead behaves differently when camera plate stud is in different side-slots
Does your ballhead base (the thin one) rotate when the lever is loosened?
I might be unlucky with the faulty item

With the lever loosened, the camera plate fits into the left or right slot very easily on mine.

I'm not following which base (the thin one) you are referring to.


When the lever is loosened, all that is loose is the ball itself.

I'm looking for a monopod head for around $50-$75. I'm leaning towards a ball head. I really don't want a quick release on it, if possible. Also rated for at least 10#.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
I use a mo frets 486 with quick release plate, same as on my light weight tripod

The only down side is that the monfretto quick release is not compatible with my Accra Swiss plate for my gimbal head so it is not easy to switch tripods.
