I have the new 600 mm f/4 Nikkor lens and I love it. However, I am very concerned about ballhead flop. It already has happened to me twice and it was very scary. So, it looks like I am going to have to get a different head to hold the lens. I was looking at the Wimberley head, but it has to be attached separately to the tripod (i.e. cannot be attached to the ballhead), so that means buying and carrying a separate tripod, which just isn’t practical for me. So, I have a few questions:
1. Does anyone have any suggestions for a head that will hold the large lens and still attach to a ballhead?
2. Will the Wimberley Sidekick hold the 600 mm lens?
3. If I get a head that will attach to the ballhead, how does it prevent ballhead flop of the whole unit?

Thanks for advice anyone can give.
