d750 L-Bracket question (rrs and kirk)

Does anyone know if a L-bracket from Kirk will work in a BH-55 clamp lever style ballhead without flaws? RRS brackets are kinda hard to find in Austria. Otherwise i would stick with a pure RRS solution. I couldnt really find a clear answer online.

The l-brackets I've read about are arca-swiss compatible. When I bought my arca-swiss tripod head, the l-bracket on my camera fit into it perfectly. They were different brands, but work well together.

Take a look at promediagear.com

PMG lbracket works on my RRS bh-55 head.

I have a Kirk L on my D810 and it works fine with my RRS bh-55 with clamp ball head.

You could email or call RRS. They are very knowledgeable and responsive. They will tell you it is best not to mix brands, but if you phrase it in such a way that they know you already have Kirk plates but desire purchase of RRS ballhead they will not discourage the purchase of their ballhead if your plates are indeed compatible.

From RRS site: Schematic of plate dimensions that you could compare with Kirk

http://www.reallyrightstuff.com/patents

I do have a Wimberley Sidekick with the Wimberley version ArcaSwiss plate which is listed as compatible with both RRS and Kirk ballheads. Using old grade school math proofs, if A=B and B=C then A=C ??? 🙂
