Thanks to Acratech's high quality materials and innovative designs, I've been a huge fan of their ballheads for years. I've owned and have been using the GV2 as my primary ballhead until just recently when I got a chance to test two of their latest, most popular ballheads: the Ultimate GP Ballhead and the award winning GP Ballhead. With a few key improvements, I was very excited to give them both a try!
I'll be honest in saying that I didn't buy either of these ballheads. As a loyal user of Acratech gear, they gave me the opportunity to review them and I was very happy to do so. That said, I've been testing them both for a couple of months now and I'm including my honest opinions on them without restraint. If there are areas where they did poorly, I won't be afraid to say so.
