Benro tripod heads. What's the consensus?

Are they any good?

Love em. Good price, good featureset, little things like a sticky releasebutton, but overall great.

I'll vouch for Benro, I'm a big fan. I consistently use the Aero 4 for quick set-up travel videography. It's one of the best travel tripods with a ball head for balancing. No variable resistance for panning and tilting, though.

I also use the BV10 a lot in tandem with FS7, and it's fantastic. Delivers on variable drag and counterbalance. Build quality of the head is great, solid construction.

Benro is obviously not as expensive as other brands, but it packs in great essential quality in "budget" packages.

In my experience, if I'm not using Manfrotto, I'm using Benro. It's a very good second.

I have used an S8 which isn't as refined as a high budget head but good for the money.
