A Really Right Stuff ball head is the best choice for all precision firearms needs, and will give you fast and accurate control and solid support of your firearms and observation equipment. Aiming and horizon leveling can be accomplished as one instinctive motion, and rigid lockup takes just a quick twist of one control. As a result, our ball heads are faster to use and inherently more stable than 3-axis pan-tilt tripod heads. Since the ball head profile is smaller and lacks the protruding handles, they are also much easier to carry and pack.
The BH-40 LR SOAR® Series Ball head is the culmination of years of iterative development based on first-hand experience and abundant input from seasoned professionals and enthusiasts. Our goal was to build the perfect general-purpose ball head. Our premise was that aesthetics needn't play second fiddle to functionality, that operation should be intuitive and predictable, and that your investment should be rewarded with years of satisfaction.
Extensive field use has proven the utility of our innovative design. The BH-40 delivers solid performance in all weather and temperature ranges. Its low profile, precision control knobs, rugged housing, and state of the art quick-release clamps make our BH-40 the ball head of choice for both seasoned professionals and enthusiastic amateurs.
