Rails,follow focus etc.

The accessory that I need most now is a set of rails. I have a set that I got with my Letus Extreme, but i want to leave that set up with my Canon A1. I have an Indian follow focus that works fairly well, and I could for starters use it on both rigs. For the letus and my Nikon primes, I bought gear rings from Redrock ( not cheap..$55 each!!).
Any rail reccomendations?

I'd like to possibly get another ffocus sometime soon, and also might want some kind of affordable shoulder rig. Indipro has modular set ups and isn't hugely expensive. I looked at cavisions' stuff, but there aren't any prices( guess I'll call them). If I get another ffocus, I'll need gear rings for my Canon lenses. I'd also like to be able to use the Nikon primes with the redrock gear rings on whichever 7D set up I end up getting. Any suggestions?

It would be great to be able to try this stuff out in one location. I hate buying gear without knowing if it will work for me.

I contacted cavision and they had a pretty quick turnaround on the price list, though I think it was in Canadian $. I'm in the same place as you, left wondering which FFocus to purchase. My suggestion is decide around how much money you can/want to spend and then looking at the product. most FF use RC Car-like gears so you may find that cinevate has the best. basically you can't go wrong unless you get the indiPro or the iDC skateboard wheel joke for 99 bucks.

I'm probably going to go with cavision, but I haven't got my hands on it to recommend it
