I would advise a little caution. I have the older 7063H - love it! Small, durable and pretty smooth. Better than any 75mm bowl Manfrotto hands down. Only issue was it could not tilt very much - 45 deg max. I got the Gh06 thinking that it would be better as it was a newer model (plus the tilt angles was much improved). Not really! Can't complain about smoothness and lack of backlash but durability is a let down. I look after my gear but this one started giving problems within a year - 360 degree pans would not hold level all the way through and I couldn't find a way to fix that so now its relegated to locked-off duty. It'll beat the Sachtler ACE series in handling but I'm not sure if it'll last as long. I think the Sachtler FSB series is still the gold standard.

I have the Varavon version of the 717 also. Those 717 series you definitely get more than what you pay for! :cool:
