2 Inch Volt? Is anybody still working on this?


Recommended Posts

Apparently Betz has adapted a volt to a 50mm gimbal, which is 1.969 inches (so close!). Gives me hope that it'll soon be adapted to a 2 inch, to be used on a XCS post. But it's all quiet out there. Is anybody actively pursuing it? Greg Bubb? MK-V?

Greg Bubb at XCS is not making a 1.75" wound carbon fiber post that is compatible with the Volt M2 gimbal.  XCS makes this post with either XCS or PRO connectors.  It's an elegant solution for those of us who'd like to get a Volt, but don't want to give up our super still XCS posts.

Alec, thanks for catching my typo.  XCS is indeed making the 1.75" post.

Alex, physics requires a smaller post will be slightly less rigid, but a wound carbon fiber post will be significantly stiffer than an aluminum 1.5" post.  XCS does not compromise quality.  Greg Bubb can give you the exact specs on stiffness for the 1.75" post.  It's the only way to mount a M2 Volt gimbal on an XCS post.  Like many, I've waited for someone to make a 2" version of the Volt, because I didn't want to give up my XCS post.  The XCS solution of making a 1.75" post is a simple, yet elegant solution.  I think it's the best, most rigid setup for a Volt available.

Stiffness is a function of the OD of the material, and of the ID of the material, and of the material itself. With carbon fiber posts, there are a host of factors affecting stiffens, and stiffness can be quite different form one post to another, even if the first two factors (OD and ID) are identical. I'm sure any post that Greg makes (okay, and the M1 post) are super-stiff and won't give anyone any problems.
