    Haa... thought i was the only one experiencing this. Just got a 330DX and same as you S11loop, dropped it while it was on standing position.

    The lever is too fragile and too expensive to replace. Went to MS and was told the ballheads were all out. Need to wait, think will head to CP to get one.

    Hmmmm I recall recently someone broke his manfrotto just 1 day after purchase.. ended up he was selling the legs seperately coz there was no hope for it.. LOL it all boils down to luck..

    On the topic of tripods, can have a little OT onto tripod heads?
    I am thinking of changing the "standard" head on my Slik 300DX to a ball head. Dropped the head quite a few times, but cuz it is made like a tank, it survived my numerous drops. But than, it was alittle hard to adjust. So, thinking of getting a "easier" to adjust ball head.
    I was at CS and TCW yesterday. The TCW uncle showed mi a Brenco as part of my education to the difference between a $50 ball head and a $400+ ball head. I was really impressed.
    Then went to CP and saw a Gitzo head, pretty nice, not too big, can hold 5kg and the price was quite reasonable. 150+/-, including a QR plate.
    What do you guys look out for in a ball head?

    I've also tried out the GITZO ball head at CP. It looks good to me. But I am still unsure of switching from pan head to ball head.
