Re: Gitzo Monopod GM5561T vs GM5541

Please bear in mind that I live in Germany. I have never heard of Custom Brackets before, so did not consider this brand. The RRS head is available in a version with a lever release clamp, the Kirk one is not. I prefer the lever clamp, because I find it easier and quicker to mount the lens. A lever clamp is also more compact for transport, because the lever mechanism rests fairly close to the head when closed and does not project laterally so wide as the stem of a screw-type clamp.
