Which Bogen Ball Head?

Along with the new tripod (see other thread) I want to get a quick release ball head. I want to keep it in the $50 or under range, so I'm looking at the 3262 QR, the 3055, the 3055S or the 3413 "Pro Ball Head." Any comments on these heads would be welcome, especially the hex QR plates on the 3055 vs. the square plate on the other ones.

The main gripe I have about my current Stroboframe ball head (admittedly a cheapy) is that it has just enough play that it slides down a fraction on an inch after adjustment. I'd like the head to lock firmly in place, and not have to "aim a little high" when I set the lock.

TIA,

- WG
