Letus35 Rod Support System

Hey Guys,

It's been awhile since I posted. I did some research and didn't find any topics about the new Letus35 rod support system.

Here's what they're offering:

2 rod lengths: 30cm & 45cm

Optional: Rod Extensions (Two 15cm Rods with red anodized couplers / $30.00 extra)

Front Support Bracket ($50)

Now here's my question:

I have an A1, a Manfrotto tripod w/501 head and plan on getting the Letus Extreme. I also plan on buying a line of Canon EF mount lenses in conjunction with the Extreme.

What rod support system (and extras) should I get??

Also, a secondary question;

Anybody know where I can get a follow-focus that's compatible with Canon EF lenses, and the Letus R.S.S ?

Thank you!

I ordered the Letus rods and they just arrived this morning. They look great and very well-made.

Believe it or not, I'm still waiting on the LetusExtreme myself (I ordered it over a month ago) but it should be here tomorrow morning.
They were nice about the long wait and the rods arrived within three days!

Anyway, the good thing about them is that they are extremely adjustable. (shiny, too)

I'll write more when I test out the actual Extreme with the rods....

forgot to mention, they told me to get the 30 cm and the 15 sm extensions for the XH A1... So that's what I got.
