I was planning on buying a Wimberly head, but I saw on Kirk Photo's web site, at www.kirkphoto.com, that they have a new tripod head (called King Kobra) that is similar to what the Wimberly is intended to do.

Does anyone here have any experience with either company??

I did meet the folks from Wimberly here in Austin at the NANPA convention. I saw one of their heads supporting a 600mm telephoto lens. The Wimberly seemed to be extremely solid. The Kirk Phot unit looks pretty nice as well...

Any experiences or ideas????
