I have a 3 series gitzo systematic with the gitzo levelling head and manfroto 405 geared head. and after 9 years of use, not once have i ever thought i need something sturdier or heavier

I decided to go 5 series because I'm interested in doing a lot more very long long exposures, and because I'm thinking I might even get into wildlife down the road.

I ordered a 5543ls.  It's pretty bulky, so we'll see if I can actually hike with it haha.

I appreciate all the advice on the gear heads, I've never really thought about how much time they could save with small adjustments vs. a ball.
