Looking to rent a small travel jib in the Bay Area

Hi All - I'm looking to rent a travel size jib (Seven Compact XL or Kessler KC Lite or Pocket Jib) somewhere in the Bay Area for a few weeks in November.

Anybody have any leads? Rental or house or privately owned would be fine.

Thanks,
Zac

Hey Chris -

I did not find a jib to rent, so I bought a Kessler Pocket Jib. I wasn't able to bring it on my shoot in the Amazon however - we were flying in planes that were too small to carry it in its case.

I'm going to be renting it out in the SF area for a good price if you're ever interested.

Cheers,
Zac

The Pocket Jib is quite nice. Make sure that the bolts at/near the head are good and tight. Mine (at work) was not and there was quite a bit of play in the system. Cranking down the bolts (within reason) really helped keep everything solid and level.
