Well the ankle weights are just one of the things we’ve used in the past and they do work.
Some people will "hang" equipment off of the tripod too but again the idea is to add more weight at the center.
On looking professional: I’d rather give my customer a clean image with whatever I use vs. looking "professional" and giving them some fuzzy video.
My 2 cents.
