I recently upgraded my original Jobu BWG-Pro tripod head to the newly redesigned Jobu BWG-Pro2 tripod head and man what a difference. The head is so much smoother on the pan and the tilt side, I mean seriously noticeable so my hats off to the engineers at Jobu Design as the original BWG Pro was a serious piece of gear and this new Jobu Pro2 tripod head surpasses the original in every way. The new 100% CNC swing-arm is 400% stiffer in bending and twisting which translates into less vibration through your lens and more in focus shots. They also integrated the arca-swiss compatible quick release clamp saving valuable weight and aligning themselves with the gold standard for camera mounts in Arca Swiss so I was glad to see that continue.
The Jobu Design Pro2 tripod head is rated for a maximum capacity of 35 lbs and weighs in at 3lbs 10 oz. I love the big rubber knobs which can be worked easily with mitts on during cold winter shoots and the mechanism locks down tight through the full range of motion so there is absolutely no creeping when you have your heavy lens mounted and are trying to focus on a static object over a longer period of time. There is also a locking mechanism for safe transport which you’ll appreciate when you are carrying a $10,000 lens over your shoulder.
I love the Jobu Design Pro2 tripod head so much I decided to do a video to showcase it for you. During the video I will show you the features of the Jobu Design Pro2 tripod head along with a few tips and tricks to help you with your wildlife photography.
