Ever pinch your finger in a Manfrotto flip lock? Extra points if you've done it in -25°c temperatures!!1!I admit I managed to pinch skin on my finger in a twist lock tripod, so I'm not sure which type of locks are the greater health risk :-) I got a nice linear bruise that lasted for a week or so.

Has anyone tried that inverted Arca Swiss ball head?
The Acratech GP, or the Arca Swiss P0? There are a few users here who have and recommend the former, haven't heard much about the latter here.
Manfrotto 190XPROB. Great solid tripod, adjustable legs, decent height, and at a pretty good price.

One of my older Manfrotto tripods not only had the vicious flip locks, but the edges of the fliplock had this very sharp plastic flashing. Crikey, they could not have made it more dangerious unless they put metal teeth on it.
Not keeping your finger out of the way is a mistake you make ONCE with some of the older Manfrottos. Yikes that hurt!
My newer one still has the flip locks but the edges are at least more rounded.
