    As alway I cocked up and bought a 804RC2 head for my 055PROB tripod

    The tripod fine but the head can't handle the weight of a 1D MKIIN and 300 f/2.8 lens which together come to about 4KG

    The shop I bought if from have kindly offered to take the 804RC2 back in exchange for another Manfroto head thats up to the job (They only sell Manfroto)

    So what do you suggest I get instead, maybe a 160 or 229 or a geared head as would rather have a 3 way and not ball type. Like I said, need to be MANFROTTO

    I mainly use the tripod for Landscape.
