Hi I saw another place that you had experience with Kirk BH-3 how is CB-30 compared to that?

The Kirk BH-3 is definitely a more solid ballhead than the CB-30, I would say the Kirk BH-3 can handle easily lenses that are more than 200mm (maybe even a 400mm), whereas the CB-30 will be comfortable with 200mm. I figured that my gears will not go beyond 200mm, so I settled for the CB-30 which is more than enough for what I will be doing.

Thanks!

How is the handling between those? How much do you have to turn to lock the head on the Feisol?
Does it creep?

The BH-3 definitely feels and handles better, but the CB-30 is equally up to task with what I have.

The Feisol doesn't creep, once locked down (need not turn much), it stays in it's place firmly.
