Great design and quality but insufficient weight capacity.

I purchased the BV-30M Pro Video Fluid Head recently and was very impressed with the build quality, and design. I especially liked the scales on the tilt and pan. Movement of the head was extremely smooth in both pan and tilt. I rated the head only 3 stars as I think the weight capacity falls far short of the advertised capacity of 44 pounds due to the very limited 11 pound counterweight adjustment. The weight capacity may be 44 pounds for panning but if you have a load heavier than 11 pounds it will not be sufficient in tilt. I did end up returning the BV-30M for a refund and I must say Leofoto was excellent to work with. They truly build quality products and they stand behind them.
