The next evolution of RRS Ball Heads 

Now equipped with the SC-ARC, these ballheads will handle anything and everything you throw at them. 

The BH-55 SCR is the biggest and baddest ballhead in the RRS SOAR line. Featuring dual 90° drop notches, this head can accommodate any rifle and firing position. 

Your Really Right Stuff ball head now utilizes our patent-pending R-Mount interface for mating your clamp to your ball head’s stem in the most secure manner possible. 

The R-Mount’s rosette will prevent twisting at the coupling point between the two pieces of hardware over time, and will assist in eliminating “play” that results from regular use on our earlier tongue-and-groove designs.


  • BH-SCRs are compatible with RRS Ultralight and Versa Tripods. They are not compatible with TFCT Tripods.
  • All BH-SCR ball heads also mount directly to the 3/8" threaded stud, making these compatible with non-RRS tripods.


  • Patented lever-release clamp for fast and easy mounting
  • Patented dual clamp designed for both the RRS 1.5" dovetail and picatinny rails
  • Ergonomic design gives superior handling and unsurpassed reliability
  • Lowest height profile in class
  • Large main locking knob incorporates stainless steel ball bearings for a lifetime of silky smooth control
  • Drop notches allow maximum flexibility for positioning the rifle into any angle
  • Micrometer drag tension adjustment is repeatable and reliable
  • Precision panning base is laser-engraved at 2.5 degree intervals and features our unique drum and brake design for effortless locking
  • All components are of the finest RRS quality, machined from solid aircraft aluminum or stainless steel for maximum durability and minimum weight
  • R-LOCK (short for Rapid-Lock) adds unique safety-stop features which are built in to both a mounting rail and quick-release clamp that adhere to the RRS 1.5” Standard. The advantage of the System is the user has multiple “hard-stop” positions along the rail while retaining smooth edges and corners for maximum ergonomics and a snag-free interface that is inherently resistant to wearing down. The ”hard-stop” feature is comprised of a 5mm diameter steel pin that engages 5.5mm diameter holes in the rail. In addition to supplementing the traditional friction-based clamping mechanism, the interface prevents unintentional repositioning of the rail within the clamp when the R-LOCK is engaged.
  • Easy Top-Loading: In one quick action, the clamp can go from closed to fully open, allowing easy top-loading of RRS Dovetail and arca-swiss compatible quick-release plates; no more lost shots while fumbling to feed the plates into the end of the clamp
  • Visual Confirmation of Lock Position: You can readily observe if the lever is locked, half-open or fully open
