  • Full Size Ball Heads | RRS SOAR



The Anvil-30 is our bestselling Sport Optics and Rifle Ball Head. Designed from inception specifically for long-range rifle shooting, its clam shell design is compact, incredibly smooth tracking and yields the highest lock-up of any RRS ball head at 30ft-lbs. The patent pending RRS Taper Lock design fuses with the RRS TFCT tripod apex into one unified structure but can also thread directly on to any tripod with a 3/8”-16 stud.


Load capacity: 50 lbs/23kg

The BH-55 is our original general-purpose ball head and an RRS flagship. Sized to mate perfectly with RRS Versa 3-Series tripods. It delivers unfailing performance in any weather. Its low profile, precision control knobs, rugged housing, and quick release clamps make it the ball head of choice for professional photographers and shooters the world over. Often copied; never equaled.


Load capacity: 18 lbs/8kg

Our BH-30 small ball head is ideal for backpacking and travel. Compact in size, but large in performance, it mates ideally with our adventure/travel size tripods like the Ascend-14 or TQC-14.

The BH-25 is scaled to fit our small table-top tripods like the TFA-01 Ultra or can be rigged with the RRS Multi-clamp when you need to fix gear on a tree branch or some other unusual position.
