3 Legged Thing (3LT) Tripod Ballhead

Itchy shutter finger...

I wanted to know if anyone has experience using a 3LT Ballheads.

I have a Gitzo 1545T that I am happy with for my landscape photography adventures, but I haven't been able to find a ballhead I love yet.

I've used a Sunway Foto 28/36, Photoclam 30, Gitzo GH1382QD, Markins Q3i and finally the RRRS BH-30. I have the BH-30 now but am not entireley happy with it. The main knob/lever actually hits the plate at times. I found that design to be a bit odd given how much rave about RRS heads.

I was looking into the Airhed Pro ballhead.($150)

Any advice for other arca-compatble travel tripod ballheads is welcome.

AirHed Pro Levers are, imho, highly recommendable (5 DIV + 100-400 & 1,4 Ext).
But do not order online, test them in a real store, with R5 and 70-200.
Very nice are their AirHed Vu ballheads...but I haven't used them.

Thanks! I actually work only a few blocks from BH so I plan on going in sometime this week to next and trying my R5 on there.
