"The popular NOVOFLEx ClassicBall 3 used by professionals and amateurs alike is now available in a completely revised version. Version II features a ""true"" panorama panning base with 360deg. laser engraved scaling at the bottom of the housing. To make use of the panorama function the ball head is being turned upside down thus allowing a 100% accurate leveling to avoid a sloped horizon while doing panorama shots. To support the leveling, the CB3 II comes with an integrated bubble level. The necessity to lengthen and shorten the legs of your tripod/Quadropod to adjust no longer exists. The combination of CB3 II and the brand new MonoLite tilt head converts it into a two way tilt head with silky smooth movements in just a matter of seconds. Three vertical 90deg. openings for the ball neck New AFC (advanced friction control) system for precisely repeatable and defined friction preset No more fumbling for friction, locking and panning knobs Absolutely no change of ball position during locking, thanks to totally new design of the ball interior One glance at the ClassicBall, with its understated matt titanium finish and its clear that this is a high-precision instrument made to last. In line with NOVOFLExs well-known product policy, the ClassicBall is an all-metal design incorporating advanced polymer materials. As with other NOVOFLEx products, the ClassicBall was developed and is manufactured entirely at the companys plant in Memmingen, Ger"
