video tripod head: 700RC2 vs 701RC2

Hi there, I have a Panasonic PVGS-120 camcorder. It is very small (about 1lb). Should I buy bogen 700RC2 or 701RC2 for it? I already have 3001 bogen leg set that I am planning to use.

701 is a better head.

Thank you very much for the reply. But does 701RC2 look too big for my small camcorder and tripod legs? Also, does 701RC2 make any difference compared to 700RC2 with my cam as far as quality goes? I have no intention of buying a big cam in the future, and don't want to carry a big tripod head unless it is necessary.

701 has much smoother starts and stops, as well as less bounce. The head ahs a sliding plate for balance and is true fluid. It is actually quite small.
