Strength:

Controls and movements are very simple. Very stable and easy to manipulate.

Weakness:

Somewhat heavy Pricey-head alone is expensive and then the additional brackets need to be added in.

I traded in mycanon 500mm/4L IS for the 600mm version and at the same time purchased the wimb head. I had used the sidekick in the past. This is an outstanding device that i highly recommend for any serious wildlife photographers. I am happy with my decision to use this head with my big lens.

Customer Service

I had a long conversation with the owner before making my purchase and he was extremely helpful. He was not pushy and really seemed honest with his opinions.

Strength:

The absolutely best tripod head for big glass.

Weakness:

None.

It's big, it's heavy, but it is absolutely fantastic. Mount a 600/f.4 and take this beauty for a spin and you'll never go back to a ball head again. Wemberly recommends using it on 400/f2.8 and bigger lenses, but I've used it with a 300/3.8 and F5 or D1H with great results. Following the action was never easy. Once you balance the setup, it moves with silk-like smoothness. Get the quick-release clamp. It'll save lots of time and give a very secure connection.

Customer Service

Hve never needed service, but customer support has been wonderful. Great company!
