One is Vanguard BH-50 ballhead.

The other ballhead is Sirui C10S.

I like the features on both tripods. For a travel tripod, nothing comes close to the Sirui.

I have never heard of either company. If they make stuff that is incompatible, I never will. Thanks for heads up.

I have a couple of Arca-Swiss Monoball ballheads: an older B1 and a newer Z1, RRS L-brackets for my cameras, RRS replacement feet for my lenses, Wimberley gimbal, Kirk clamps and Acratech plates for miscellaneous stuff. My tripods are Gitzo and my monopods are Manfrotto. Everything works beautifully and they all fit together.

Can you replace the clamps in your ballheads with a Kirk one? Or replace the plates you have with genuine Arca-Swiss or Acratech plates? That should fix at least some of the incompatibilities. Or replace the ballheads on your tripods with RRS or Arca-Swiss one.

Life is too short to spend it beta testing cynically made and falsely advertized junk.
