Manfrotto releases XPRO Geared tripod head for precision adjustments with heavy kit

I don’t know why DPR describes this as a “heavy-weight” head for “weighty” equipment. It replaces the 410, which was always Manfrotto’s smallest, lightest geared head, and it holds no more than 9lbs. Also, the XPRO is clearly designed for weight savings, not tank-like construction, and for use on lighter tripods.

Yea! Finally, a geared head for hikers and walkers.
