I also think they are a good store. However, like all businesses they are trying to maximize their profits. I have noticed that anytime you search for anything in camera support Oben always comes up first. I suspect B&H makes more profit on this line so they push it.

I researched ball heads for about a year before I bought. I could not afford a Markins (which is no doubt the best for the money). After looking at many heads in walk-in camera stores and looking at friends' equipment I bought a Sirui K40X. I think this the best brand out there in the $100-$170 range. Get the Markins if you can afford it but look at the Sirui (pronounced Sue-Ray) if you can't afford the Markins.
