Product Overview

The new GX series ball heads are lighter, smaller and more powerful than our previous generation ball heads.


FLM's new GX series ball heads are incredibly light, strong and creep-free. With a simplified but highly effective friction lever, these ball heads can outperform larger ball heads in stability and precision.

The GX series features a low-profile design, a beautifully anodized satin-surface ball, short-travel pan control and the popular, FLM-designed 15˚ Stop function.

These ball heads are built to last, offering the same 10-year warranty as our previous FT series heads, and will never weigh you down.

  • Recommended clamps: SRB-60, QLB-60
  • Recommended tripods: CP30, CP34
  • Recommended camera type: DSLR (full-frame and crop sensor), Medium Format (film & digital)
  • Recommended lenses: 150-600mm, 400mm

The ball head includes a reversible 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 stud, so you can mount the clamp of your choice.

    This is a precision crafted and rugged ball head, with a simple combined friction and lock knob, which makes adjustment relatively easy. I also like the detented 15 deg pan adjustment knob on the base, since not all ball heads have this feature. A highly recommended addition to your tripod. Ordering direct from FLM was easy via the PayPal checkout option.

    Easy to use and works great. Much better than a conventional ball head.
