Based on the suggestions and urgings of many photographers, Kirk Enterprises now introduces its own precision ball head designed for a lifetime of trouble-free performance. Featuring the same efficiency of design and rugged construction that make other Kirk products so popular, the Kirk Ball Head features a Satisfaction Guarantee and Five-year Warranty.

Weighing in at only 30oz. / 850g, this ball head features silky smooth ball-and-socket action for complete control--just by releasing and locking a single knob. Two smaller knobs control the 360-degree panning base and the amount of ball friction. The Model BH-1 features a universal quick-release platform that accepts all Arca-style plates and mounts.

All external components are crafted from tough 6061-T aircraft aluminium including the solid, captive-design knobs, and the internal metal parts are stainless steel and brass to avoid corrosion. The ballcup is produced from self-lubricating Delrin composite, and the tripod socket accepts 3/8-inch thread.
