The engineers over at Jobu Design out of Canada have really out done themselves with their latest round of upgrades.  I consider them to be the best gimbal head on the market today. If you’re looking for a gimbal head that’s the perfect balance between weight and support for your longer lenses this is a gimbal head that should be at the top of your shopping list. 
Here's a list of features that I say make it the best tripod head available today:
  • Needle bearings making panning movement effortless
  • Adjustable swing arm allows for necessary adjustments on the vertical plane as an easy switch to landscape photography
  • Arca-Swiss clamp included
  • Anti-creeping lock down capability so you can focus on a static subject 
  • Uber stiff swing arm to reduce vibration across the longer lenses

This head is rated for a maximum payload of 25 lbs meaning it can easily support your Nikon 600mm lens or Nikon 800mm lens when it is released.   
If you’re currently using a ball head for your 300mm or longer lens or you're shopping for a gimbal head it is well worth your time to check out the video review below where I show the Jobu Design HD3 tripod head in action and just how easy it is to maneuver my Nikon D800 and Nikon 600mm lens combo.
