Reviews of this jib?

Hi-
I did a search for 'Spectrum Super Jib' on the site, I didn't find any.

I found this on the www.imagewest.tv site - it sounded like a good deal to me, but I'm no expert on jibs and cranes and such.

Curious if anyone has one of these, or if they could form an opinion reading the ad.

thanks!

I would be very careful of any jib/crane that attaches to your fluid tripod head mount.

I don't think they are made for that.

Just my opinion.

Video Fluid Heads

Howdy,

Bob Jones here from Skycrane...

Dennis, James is correct. You should investagate other options in terms of jib choices and how they mount. Preferably you'll want a jib that mounts directly to a tripod without the use of a fluid head.

Hope this info helps.

Cheers...
Bob
