Greetings and happy holidays everyone. My guess is that the question of ball head comparisons has already been asked and answered. If someone would be kind enough to link me to a thread that might offer an alternative to the well-reviewed Markins line, I'd appreciate it.

I ordered a Markins Q-ball M20 from the nikonians store on 12/1 and can't seem to get an answer as to when it will ship. I need to make a decision by the end of today as to whether to cancel that order and find an alternative, or wait it out. So I'm hoping there might be anothr ball head line that is more readily available and can offer comparable quality to the Markins.

Arca b-heads seem to be the ones most often compared to. Anyone out there who can offer a model recommendation? I'll be mounting the head to a Gitzo 1325 and attaching a D2Xs.

Thanks!
Tim
