HAbbycam Super Jib

HAs anyone used one of these and is it worth the money? Also, what size sticks of tripod do you have to get it to work properly?

I am just a newbie, so if I am asking dumb questions, let me know.

I owned one. It's ok, but it does bend when you mount a camera on it.

Look around there are other ones that are only a little more expensive, but better made.

Rob what camera were you using with that device? I am in a great need for jib arms and i was looking at a few some are over 300. Looking at the design it seems this is simple i might try making this myself. What are some jib arms you guys recommend?
I am planning on using that with my soon to be bogen 503 head and some 3246 legs.

I was using a Canon GL-2. I noticed that it would bend slightly under the weight.

I have since used a jib from ProMax and Studio 1. Both work great. Neither will bend from the camera weight. Rob
