Default Induro vs sirui

I am in the market for a ballhead. I've been using a gimbal with long lens for years on my 3 series tripod (birds and wildlife), but am going to spend some time now doing landscape and the gumball doesn't do it. I've been looking at Induro BD2 and sirui k30x to try and keep things affordable. Thoughts? Is the 2 knob system on the sirui easy to use? Thanks!

Personal preference, I would choose the Induro as it is machined magnesium alloy, which is generally stronger than the common aluminum alloy that is generally used. I also much prefer a separate friction control knob rather than a combo friction clamping knob.

Best bet is to go somewhere where you can give them both a try and see which one you like best.
