The brand new price is kinda steep, but I fell in love with this head. I will try my luck in the used market before going for the new one.
Be careful with used models of the RRS ballhead. I read of an instance or two of the ball separating. That's certainly been fixed with new units. If the price isn't that different, you may want to just get a new one.
i've shot with my Arca-Swiss Z1 and the RRS. They're very close in function. One of these top ballhead is really a great investment. They give a really solids setup for long exposures and/or big lenses.
