Thanks to its light weight, the 103 HD fluid head can successfully be used mounted not only on tripods but also monopods. The mounting thread is 3/8" and the mounting base is flat. Accordingly, any tripod or monopod with a 3/8" screw and a flat base is compatible.

Included in the kit are: a pan bar, a long mounting plate, and a quick-release camera plate. The pan bar attaches to one of two rosette adapters. The mounting plate can be moved forward and back to enable finding the center of gravity with different cameras, and it has ruler markings on one side to help with positioning. The camera plate features support pads and a locking pin in addition to a 1/4" camera screw.

Well built, fairly smooth
I got this head as a drop-in replacement for the Varavon 815 HD flat head which was on waiting list for an unknown period. I can only compare it with the Varavon 815 ball head which I got at the same time. Assuming the 815 flat and ball head are equal in most respects, I would recommend the 815 over the 103HD. The 103HD is definitely solid built. I like the quality. No wiggle or anything of the sort. The oil is more sticky than that of the 815. I almost can't make a gentle panning start with it. But apart from that, it feels quite smooth to operate. The 815 feels smoother, though. It has a smaller base plate than the 815, so they two cannot swap base plates, which is really my biggest gripe. If Varavon's claim that the 815 is compatible with Manfrotto 701HD, then 815 has en even bigger advantage than this head. I personally also prefer a larger baseplate, since it gives me a feeling that the camera cannot rock around. But note that the 103HD seems to hold the baseplate rock solid in place as far as I can tell. I'm keeping the head for use on e.g. a monopod, but I will also try to get a hold on a 815 Flat Head again.
