I received my August issue of Outdoor Photography last night. They have an article about ballheads, page 80.

It is not a detailed speadsheet, feature/benefit comparison article but it does mention the big names like Arca-Swiss, RRS, Gitzo, Kirk, Slik, Giotto, Novoflex, and Manfrotto and mentions prices and load capacity.

It is interesting that Markins isn't mentioned. I guess because it is not easily available at popular shops like B&H and therefore not well known. Looks like they may need to have someone call OP and lend then a head for evaluation. I bet an article on the Markins head, available at the Nikonians Pro shop, would be a big plug for those that don't yet know about Markins or Nikonians
