I'm currently using an Induro AT-313 and BHD3 ballhead with arca swiss plates. I plan to do some birding this spring and would like to try a gimball head for added stability. I used the tripod/ballhead combo this past year and feel I can get better results with a sidekick style gimbal.

I'm very satisfied with their tripod and ballhead so I'm considering this model over the Arca Sidekick due to cost and the included lens plate. The lenses I'm looking to support are the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 HSMII, Sigma 300 f/2.8 HSM with Sigma DG 1.4 and 2x tc's and a 150-500 without tc. Camera would be a D2x or D300s. I don't plan to get a lens any heavier than the 300 f/2.8 which weighs 5.3 lbs or 2400g.

Would appreciate your thoughts and opinions before making my purchase.
