The FLM HB-75 Half Ball Leveler for CP34 and CP38 Tripod Legs is a 75mm half-ball adapter that allows you to use select flat base tripod heads on legs with a 75mm half ball. The adapter is compact and has a small handle, and this allows you to quickly level your flat base head on CP34 or CP38 tripod legs, as well as third-party tripod legs, gaining for you all the benefits of a half-ball system without having to source a new tripod head. The half ball allows up to 15° of leveling adjustment in any direction, making it very quick to level your head without having to make leg adjustments.
The top platform of the half ball, where the head mounts, is covered in a composite of natural cork and rubber. This helps minimize vibration, while making the cushion less susceptible to the effects of humidity and weather. The half-ball adapter incorporates a 3/8"-16 screw that allows you to mount a flat base tripod head with a 3/8"-16 threaded mount. Three included set screws help secure your head on the adapter and prevent it from spinning and coming loose from the adapter.

I shoot pano's with some regularity so getting this half ball leveling base for the CP34 tripod was an easy decision. Quick, simple and just as well thought out and well designed as the tripod.

I like everything about the half ball except for one thing, the bubble level. Since it is placed on the handle, there is no way to know that it is level. I can't hardly see the bubble. Since the half ball doesn't go all the way into the tripod bowl, I think it would be more useful to have it located off to the side of the bowl.

Great little leveling base, very affordable and well built. Another great product from FLM. Highly recommended.

Ball works well for tightening and short lever allows tripod to go to lowest level. But could operate a bit smoother when a bit of tension is applied when leveling.
