AriFLM: Hello,My name is Ari, I'm the distributor for FLM in the USA and Canada.I first want to applaud the excellent work work Mark Banas has done here, it's incredibly thorough and articulate.The weight of the CP10-A1 is indeed 277g (0.6 lbs.) and the B&H website should soon reflect that.Also, the other option for a ball head with the CP10-A1 is the CB-32F; it will not only fit onto the table tripod, but uses a much more sophisticated friction system, same as the one found on all of our pro heads. It also has a separate pan knob. Thank you
Nice tripod but where can I get one? B&H says backordered, Amazon says unavailable and all the dealers listed on the web site don't carry it. Can you order direct?
