Jonyjib 18 vs Kesler 18 (and which tripod?)

Hey guys, I am interested in buying a news jib for my work, I have sold the glidecam camcrane 200 that I had and now am going for a bigger tool as the Jonyjib2 18' or the Kesler 18'..

Actually I prefer the jonyjib than the kesler crane (even if the kesler is cheaper) but I would like to read your opinion also about this jibs....which one is the best and why?


the next question that I have is which tripod do you suggest me to buy for using the crane..


thanks!

Jonyjib

I have a Jonyjib and I can tell you that John Huffman at Jonyjib makes a great product and his service after the sale is awesome.

As for the tripod, ask John at Jonyjib. I have the one he recommended and sold me and it's perfect.

update!


I have recieved the Jib since 28 of August! It took a bit long for the jib to come but I dont care about that anymore . the Jib is oustanding! QUALITY AND ABILITIES are beyond my wildest imagination!

there is nothing negative about the jib or the company that is producing this babies!

What i liked about this crane is

1- John is always there to anwser in every question a customer could have for the jib.
2- The quality of the crane
3- The manuals and the dvd that are inside the parcel are just super! they show u how simple is to setup and work with the crane
4- (THIS IS WHAT I LIKED THE MOST) it doesnt matter if a customer buy the Jonyjib 2 18'' or 15'' or any other size of the crane, there is an upgrading kit from jonyjib2 to jonyjib pro and you can increase the size at anytime u like . that means that my jonyjib 18 will become jonyjib pro 30'' really soon :)
5-Works perfect with my motorized head of glidecam
