manfrotto 054-Q2 vs the 498RC2
May 30, 2013

Hi all, i'm getting ready to go to a photo expo tomorow to buy a tripod head.  I was going to buy either the manfrotto 054-q2 or 055-q2.  i went into a store yesterday and noticed the manfrotto 498rc2 and noticed it has pretty much everything the 054 and 055 have. but it does have this little spring loaded pin that sticks out that serves as a safety feature so you can't accidentally unlock it.  does this pin easily break?   and what are the performance differences between the 498rc2 and the other two?  other than weight, load, material and price of course.  is there a difference in performance?  does one have more creeping than the other?  thanks
