Sachtler Ace L - Lime Green "Freddie Wong Signature Edition"

In short Sachtler is selling a limited edition of the Sachtler Ace L head on aluminum sticks for $200 less than the Ace L / CF sticks price.

From Sachtler (with light hearted video)
Sachtler Ace L - Freddie Wong Edition

News Shooter article:
The new limited edition Freddie Wong Signature Ace Tripod from Sachtler

For reference:
1: Ace M head (0-8.8lb) w/ Aluminum Tripod is $620 at B&H

2: Ace L head (0-13.2lb) w/ Carbon Fiber Tripod: $1,035 at B&H

3: Ace L "Freddie Wong" head (0-13.2lb) w/ Aluminum Tripod: $783 at B&H

So if you're in the market for a Sachtler Ace and need the L instead of the M (because why not have 7 steps of counterbalance instead of 5 and have a head that can hold 4.5lbs more), but you don't need the CF sticks, then this is a nice deal. But if you want CF sticks & the Ace L head, then stick with the "non-signature" edition.

Re: Sachtler Ace L - Lime Green "Freddie Wong Signature Edition"

Great description. I was just shopping the Ace M for a friend, saw the signature edition and wondered what the story was. Reading this, it's perfectly clear. (At first glance on the website, I wondered if it might be an extra $163 for a "name", but that's clearly not the case.)

FWIW, the Ace M should meet my friend's needs.
