New toy!

Went into my local LCE today and after asking if that was the phone number on the price tag, I walked out with a new Manfrotto 322RC2 ballhead. He dropped over 20 without to much haggle, just on 70, which looking on here seems ok.
Im now off to stuff a few items in the classified...............any guesses?
One thing i have noticed which actually didnt cross my mind until it was to late and id bought the dam thing was if you mount a long lense on head instead of the body you have to offset the handle release otherwise you cant use it. Think i can live with that thou just about. Best part of it it weighs more than my Velbon CF tripod!

Strange folk they have in your part of the world. Are you sure it wasn't a Wallace & Gromit set, or do they still use plasticine instead of carbon?
