How finicky are the tolerances on the quick release plate on the Kirk collar?  Will it work with any A-S compatible quick release ball head?

Generally, and A-S screw-type clamp will work with most any A-S plate.  But it is a different story with the lever-style clamps.  In fact, RRS warns that only RRS and Wimberly plates will work.

Hi Ken,

Another to read that, is: "Stay away from RRS heads & clamps."

Forgot who posted it, and in what forum, but there was a link to A-S compatibility combos.   Leaning toward Wimberly plates, Kirk collar, Acratech tripod, and an Acratech clamp directly on my monopod.
