strongest short articulated arm

What's the strongest articulated arm out there? I have a generic noga arm and it's not strong enough. I was looking into the manfrotto hydrostaic arm but I wanted to know if anyone compared them to the other arms to see if they're any stronger. Ideally, I'm looking for something like the manfrotto magic arm, same girth only shorter. Thanks

Re: strongest short articulated arm

Have you checked out the Cinevate articulating arms? They come in different lengths. Just got mine yesterday and plenty strong for my Lilliput monitor and battery.

How is the arm you have failing to perform exactly?

Re: strongest short articulated arm

Min, how much weight are you looking to put on the arm? My Noga arm (not a generic one) has never been a problem and I've had a variety of monitors with batteries and lighting off of it.
