What really stands out is the stem-knob length difference.

I will be using it on a heavy Gitzo Studex Performance tripod and Gitzo 1566 monopod with D700 primarily 300 f/4.

A previous post alluded to a slight base diameter difference and referenced the Traveler tripod so that's not an issue for me.

My obvious question is which to purchase. The traveler is $20 more expensive and one would hope it offers something for that $20. But there must be a very real advantage or disadvantage of the stem length.
