I think this is among the best of these type of gizmos out there. A couple important things separate it from the rest of the pack, and both of them are quite crucial. First off is the ability to really tighten the ball head so it won't move around. This is the most important thing for these little shoe mounts. I have a couple others that I have purchased alone or that have come as a part of another product (LED lights), and they always suffer from the super-slide-syndrome: the first time you make the slightest movement, they slide into some undesirable position. The problem is that you simply can't get them tight enough, despite your best efforts. This one is a true clamp and really grips the ball head from both sides, and the tightening mechanism is actually allows you to get it as firm as it needs to be to stop all unwanted motion.
The other factor that makes this better than others is the fact that it actually has 2 ball heads. Almost seems unnecessary, but this really...
This product didn't work well for me. The unit I was supporting must've been too heavy. The dog bone part held up well, but the ends and locknuts (threaded rods also) were not as strong as I needed and the threads wouldn't tighten up and hold as I liked. Might work well for something rather light as it saves space and is a neat idea. I would be cautious of recommending, depending on the use.
I use two of these mounted one on top of the other to position my flash for macro photography. They allow for very flexible positioning and even stacked as I have them they keep my flash in place even when the camera is moved from a landscape to a portrait orientation. Unlike other ballheads I have tried, these seem to be wearing well; I think largely due to the design that clamps down on almost the entirety of the ball instead of having screws dig into the balls. They're easy to reposition on the fly even when working in the field. I've been using mine for several months now and haven't had any problems. It's easy to find adapters that allow you to change the 1/4" screw top to a hotshoe mount which give you more flexibility in mounting.
