    I own a Wei Feng, which manufactures the Fancier, and I use a Sirui G10 on it after replacing the original ball head.

    Make sure you tighten the panning lock knob, grab the head and the legs, and try to turn it anti-clockwise.

    HTH.

    Haiz.. Weifeng/ Fancier.. has a long story..

    Bought a Weifeng Tripod and accidentally dropped it, which the ball head cracked.

    Next day went to get a Manfrotto 488 RC4 ball head.. but sadly it's too heavy...

    End up went to change a Sirui G-10 Ball Head... but sadly tripod colour not nice..

    Next day went to dismantle the legs and sent for powder coating .. hehe hot orange.. cos I saw a WRX with Orange before..

    Now I manage to save up for a Carbon Fibre Sirui T-2204 and G-20 ... end of story..

    Want to change your ball head? Might else well change the legs..
