Velbon FHD series heads

Looking at getting a Velbon FHD-61q head for use with DSLR, I've had a look at them in a camera store, they are nice and compact, and very smooth to operate you can adjust the pan and tilt separately.

They probably wouldn't be up to supporting a heavy shoulder rig with counterwights etc But I can deal with that so long as they can cope with a reasonable size zoom lense lightweight rails and a mat box.

They look to me like they would be very well suited to my light weight jib.

Thoughts opinions?
