EZ-Leveler-II without protective case. The second generation EZ-Leveler-II (noted by the blue anodized knurled knobs) is smaller, lighter and made with greater precision. Comes in a nicehard shelled foam lined zippered case. 10kg (22lb) max weight loading, smooth rotation of knobs; Head Alignment Knob to point tripod head in any direction.
Note: heavier weight loads (3+lbs/1.5kgs) may see a slight lifting of level on opposite side of load which may effect leveling. Not recommended for use with heavier loading on nadir adapters.
This listing does not include case.

Great build and ease of use.
Wish it was a bit smaller, more compact, as the blue adjustment wheels are slightly visible when using with a 8mm fish-eye lens and the Nodal Ninja Ultimate R1 pano head

NN5 is a nice head, but NN4 is simple perfect for this kind of head.
Is very precise and is all you need for 360.
The starter rotator works perfect. RD's is just for Gigapixel when you get NN4 Starter.

I'm a bit of a control freak, and to use a ball head to level 100% can be difficult, especially when you have a large lens and camera on top that throws it all off. You try to get the bubble, but it keeps shifting.
What I love about the EZ-Leveler II is that it's easy to micro-adjust the level, without having to worry about a ballhead slipping and moving. All you need to do is use your thumb to move one of the three dials, and you're all set.
I've actually used this, with a ballhead on top of it, and found great results. (I've also not used the ballhead, and just used the tripod legs to level everything pretty closely, too.)
The materials and build are outstanding. The whole piece has a solid feel to it. I've spent the $$ on a high-end DSLR, lenses, and a tripod, and this doesn't disappoint.
This is now permanently attached to my tripod.
