I am currently using an Oberwerk 5000 head for all my binoculars. This head works great for my smaller binoculars, but I would like something more substantial for my 10lb 25x100 binoculars. The 25x100 work ok on the Oberwerk 5000 head, but only with the counterspring completely locked down. I'm looking for something that will handle it a bit more smoothly.
I know about the Manfrotto 503HDV, but they seem hard to come by. I found some on ebay, but they are either missing parts or people are asking the new price for a used head.
I would like them to be overmounted, so to speak. Do you know of any other substantial fluid heads that would easily carry a 10lb binocular? Would the Manfrotto 504HD work?
