Calicocam steady

Hi, did anyone try this Merlin lookalike?
http://cgi.ebay.es/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?..._promot_widget
I've seen minireviews and it does seem good -at least for its price- but don't know if it would work with a hv20+brevis+mattebox+rods rig.

Any experiences?

Thanks and regards!

I have no experience with that system but I can honestly tell you that it will not perform the same as the Merlin. I always like to stand for the middle guy but seriously speaking there are limits and this is definitely one of them. If you don't mind about the performance issues than by all means, buy it.

i just checked the link again and it doesn't work. I always say if you have the opportunity take the time and demo the rigs you want and you will feel the difference almost immediately.
