In 1986 I bought a Universal from Sydney. One of the Miller brothers made the Universal, the other kept the family name with the business. My tripod head leaked a bit. In 2008 I sold it to a friend. He needed something professional, I was in need of cash.
I have 4 Gitzo tripods models from series 1 up to series 5, couldn't be happier, i know they are very expensive, but honestly speaking, i need another head rather than a ballhead to use for large format, i like that of my Manfrotto tripod head, 804RC2, i can adjust each axes independent or individually, so i will search about a head that have that geared for axes in all direction or say 3 main direction [left/right, up/down, rotation].
