First of all, I do not see any adjustments on that arm, even if it was meant for a specific weight range. That means you would be very limited. Right there, It's a No! No! A real put off. Naturally it is a homebuilt arm. how well it works is anybody's guess. I would certainly not buy something without knowing how effective it is. Especially 'a-one-of-kind' arm.

But then if you're not too particular then maybe you could take the chance. ;)

From the Glidecam website:

<<Dual Support Arm Boom Range: 30">>

Wow -- That's a larger range than the Merlin + arm -- no?
