Looks good and the price (400 Euros) is tempting.

They say it can handle DSLRs and also heavier rigs up to 16.5lb.
I wonder how it behaves when you abuse it in this upper range.
Actually my rig is 18lb - would be a great head if it could take that wight.

My attitude with tripods, or really any "grip gear" if a tripod be that, is that bigger and heavier is better. I would't ever go for something that was only just up to the job, let alone a bit under-specced. Flimsiness is not your friend.
