ProMediaGear GT1 Tomahawk Gimbal Attachment for Ball Heads

The ProMediaGear GT1 Tomahawk Gimbal Attachment is an affordable solution if you do not need a separate gimbal head. It attaches to a regular ball head and you have a gimbal when needed.

The Tomahawk mounts to any Arca-type clamp ball head. Once done, it provides a smooth panning movement with tilt and swing. 

Weight limit is not a huge concern too as it has a max load capacity of up to 25 lbs. But is just a conservative number. It can accommodate more weight depending on the ball head.

It is also rugged and durable - all thanks to the solid T6061 aircraft-grade aluminum construction. To top it off, it has an anodized scratch-resistant finish.

If you do not have a tripod, it attaches to a monopod too via the standard mount at the bottom.

What makes it different to the GKJr Katana Pro and the GK Katana Gimbals?

In terms of functionality, it works the same. But the GT1 Tomahawk is not a stand-alone gimbal. It needs a ball head to work.

The GT1 Tomahawk is a great alternative to a dedicated gimbal head. It is lightweight, easy to carry, and works smoothly when shooting. Get yours today!

There is many awesome reviews already posted here ... so I will make mine short and sweet. I enjoy shooting auto racing and wildlife. After reading the reviews here, I thought the Tomahawk would be perfect for my needs. I can tell you ProMediaGear knocked it out of the park. It works fantastic. The detail and machining is extremely is very good. setup was fast. I was able to balance it and set the right amount of tension. I live close (30 miles) from where American Bald Eagles live and nest. The Tomahawk is going to make shooting them this time a lot more easy. I would give it 5 Stars Plus. I highly recommend it !!

s is a fantastic piece of gear that has revolutionised my imaging, It moves quickly and seamlessly between my Kirk tripod head and Manfrotto monopod as required, I shoot lots of coastal birds so switching support depending on rocky/sandy shore and whether I'm using a hide is very important. It is very easy to balance and adjust the gimbal friction - and at a fraction of the price of a full gimbal head. This shot taken with it on tripod @850mm optical. D500

I did not want to change heads when I was going to shoot with the 200-600 Sony and this does the trick. Smooth and stable. Super build quality as well. Picture attached shot at 780mm on A7rii.

Well made and works perfectly! Nice to be able to carry a lightweight attachment that enables your ball head to become a gimbal without the weight of a gimbal head.
