The Weifeng 717 and Manfrotto 701HDV are also good, just not quite as good.

I would recommend taking your crank kit to a store so that you can find a weight that fits. If you don't have a store you can try it at, order any weight that is flat on both sides and use a large penny washer underneath the weight and a long m6 bolt through the hole from the top. (Either a thumb screw or a regular screw with a large penny washer on the top side too.)

1.25KG seems to work great and doesn't tip the tripod over even with the camera at the same side - but always be careful of course!
I would recommend against plastic and cement weights (like shown in the video) because they're not always an equal weight on all sides. But if you find one that's good quality then they're good because you can sand/cut the hole so that it fits over the crank pole.
Any questions, just ask!

Ethics statement:
I am an eBay and Amazon affiliate, this means that when you buy something after visiting my links I get a small commission from eBay or Amazon. The price for you remains the same, of course. This helps me create more great videos for you guys. I still always review items honestly, and I never accept any payments to shoot reviews. A few manufacturers and distributors have sent me free review units, and I review those just like I would review something I purchased myself. Note: The affiliate links will give me commission if you purchase soon after using it, 24 hours for Amazon and 7-30 days for eBay. Thank you for watching and for your support.
