CB105: About CB-105 Video Camera Stabilizer Shoulder Support

The Cb105 is what I am leaning towards since it is alot cheaper. Ive found as much info as I can and I am still unsure. Any users of either, could you share your experience with each. My cameras are a Sony PD170 and a Sony Fx1. I had a spiderbrace for awhile and did like it but it would really fatigue your arms. Plus I broke it atleast 4 times!!! But I think that the wieght with the CB105 could really help. Any info or experience would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you.

if you want a CB105 let me know. I have one and the extra weight for it and I'll sell it.
Not that it doesn't work but for me I found the DVMultirig just works out better except for the setup time.
The CB105 carried my pd170 with on cam light and WA lens attachment and my rwireless receiver was velcro'd to the back of the unit. Having spent lots of years with a full size rig it was a bit awkward compared to that but generally worked well.
