The ProMediaGear GKJr Green Katana Pro is a lightweight aluminum gimbal head. It is created for wildlife and sports photographers. This tripod gimbal head is perfect for photographers who are always on the go.

Cameras and huge telephoto lenses fit the GKJr Katana Pro perfectly. Moreover, the included 6" PX6 Double Dovetail Plate works on the majority of telephoto lenses. But, if you need a larger gimbal head. Then, the ProMediaGear GK Katana is the one for you.

As mentioned earlier, the Green Katana Pro is made of aircraft-grade aluminum. ProMediaGear ensures that the materials used are lightweight and durable. In the end, the company settled with 6061 CNC aluminum.

The design looks hollow with its holes. Yet, because of this aluminum, this gimbal tripod head supports up to 50 lbs of gear. The material does not compromise durability. Better yet, it makes the Katana Pro Gimbal Head easier to carry at only 2.4 lbs.

This ProMediaGear gimbal head works the same as the regular Katana Pro. Only the color is different. Besides, the company has perfected everything. From smoothness to durability, it all works well.

The Katana Pro functions like any gimbal head out there. Even so, the advantage of the GKJr gimbal head is its fluid movement. The large control knobs are easy to use even with gloves.

Gimbal heads are associated with outdoor photography. Thus, the Green Katana Pro has an anodized coating to reduce scratches. The matte paint also prevents reflections from distracting wild animals. Moreover, the lightweight material makes it the perfect travel gimbal.

Lastly, the ProMediaGear GKJr Green Katana Pro has sealed ball bearings. It is maintenance-free and will work in any condition. In addition, it comes with a 5-year warranty.

Jamey Burns (Corpus Christi, US)
Love this gimbal head!

I’m not a professional photographer so I was hesitant about ordering this gimbal head. I have to say hat, so far, I love it. You can really feel the quality. It is extremely smooth and makes setting up shots so much easier, especially with a bigger lens like the Sigma 60-600mm. I can’t wait to take it in the field and really put it to the test.

Awesome product

Really enjoying using the Katana Junior. Super smooth, easily adjustable, well-engineered and stable. Feels very strong and secure, inspiring confidence when toting camera and 600mm f4 lens over the shoulder when attached to the tripod.
