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.

Really? Vanguard has been around since the 1990s in the US (founded in China 1986). Sirui is more recent, founded in 2001.

I have a Sirui tilt head fitted to a Feisol monopod. The plate fits fine on my MeFoto tripod head. It's a little big for the head, but it will not slip once tightened.


The company headquarters was originally in Taiwan, the lady that owns Vanguard Guardforce is from there.

I visited the Chinese factory (rather large) in Guangzhou about 15 years ago but I see they are now in Myanmar.

I wonder if they still use the factory in China.

BTW they also make binoculars and gadget bags . One production line, when I visited , was making a bag for Sony.
