I am pretty much dead set on the Manfretto (aluminum leg) 055xprob tripod. I plan to use it mostly for night shots, landscapes and action (road racing) photography. I have read that this is a very sturdy tripod, but I am open to hearing personal reviews from members here on the board. Anyway, I'm looking for a good ball-head to put on the tripod that will best fit my needs. I believe my "special needs" for a ball-head really fall in the category of doing the action photography. I am open to any and all recommendations. Thanks in advance for the help.
