    Can those who been to very low temp places (-20 deg C) share which brand of ballhead that were used and does not become seized.

    Thanks.

    Used my Manfrotto 488rc2 in -25 deg C and did not sieze up. worked perfectly. Just that my hands felt as if they are going to drop off.

    Daredevil bro,

    Thanks for the feedback.
    I tried my new Sirui ballhead but it seized.
    Other than that low temp experience the ball works fine.

    Travel to any cold region this winter?

    Have used Graf Studioballs at -70C without issue.
