The Gamma is about 1800, and the Alpha is about 2200, the Gamma comes with more, so it comes down to quality, with the price difference.
Get a Wise 2086 Tension Head and the Gamma Adapter (both sold by TW).
You will have the crank mechanism from the 6004 as a back-up IF you ever have to have the Wise sent in for repair AND you won't have to hassle with selling and shipping your 6004.
I have the exact set-up (6004 + Wise) I am describing to you.... it works flawlessly
