Havent used Used the clamp yet but have tried it with the centre Column of our Manffroto tripod and it fits well and is well made.

Instructions with it are basic and the product did not behave as I expected or the manual illustrated. Suppliers currently sorting this out for me
Review by Shaun
Great bit of kit if a little pricey, fits on my Manfrotto xpro 055 column very well. Just a word of warning watch the screw that tightens the clamp to the tripod column as it comes completely off the clamp as mine must have become unscrewed and fell off while out today and has cost £11 to get a replacement from Manfrotto.

A good quality clamp, it functions well. I think that describes it in a 'nutshell'. I could only rate it 7/10, as the price-tag I feel high for a relatively simple piece of equipment. Possible cheaper options?
