  2. So, can't seem to modify the original post, however, the new asking price is $19,000 with Vest. . Kit comes with everything and the Vest for 19k USD
  3. Bought used in late 2014. At its core its a standard def Pro Gen 1, but I have since put quite a lot into upgrades and maintenance, most recently completely rebuilding the gimbal and refurbishing the top stage.

  4. Backstage TR-05 Steadicam Cart - Excellent Condition $2100, or best offer. I will also consider trade of a junior magliner and cash combo. Item is located in Los Angeles. See link below for original sale posting with pics etc. http://www.steadicamforum.com/index.php?showtopic=25666&hl= email - awilkins07 at yahoo or DM here. (apologies for the double post, couldn't seem to figure out how to edit the old one.)
  5. does this principle: "The arm will perform better with more weight; best at its maximum" apply also to a IIIa arm? I've noticed a difference in my shots from when I was flying an Alexa Classic with anamorphic glass as opposed to lighter builds, F55 and Mini's. I'm still fairly new to steadicam so at first I figured the performance was with me and not the rig, but I am now curious if there is an optimal weight for the IIIa arm? I have a gold spring recently serviced by Robert Luna, I believe he said the max load was 54lbs. I definitely put the rig down less on set with lighter builds, but ultimately I want to execute my shots with precision, so if I gotta weight it down, I will.
