Fantastic, so I take it the arm will be much smoother than the current V series arms. This just sounds better and better :)

The difference between the old V-series arms and just the prototype of the V35 is incredible already, and we're still making improvements!

How about the new Gimbal Casey, the current V20 gimbal suffers from a bit of stiction(if thats how you spell it) and some have had balance problems with it, is the new one much better?

Again, another area where the V35 is taking a que from the Gold System, is the gimbal. It's fully machined now like the rest of the new rig, not punched and bent like the old V systems. This allows for vastly more accurate construction, and likewise balancing. Obviously, this totally eliminates the need to "shim" the gimbal like on some of the existing V models.

John, basically EVERYTHING on this rig is far superior. Personally, just from playing with the prototype components, which arent even near completion yet, it's miles ahead of the existing V systems in nearly every respect. Probably the only characteristic that it'll still share with the old V systems is, thankfully, the low price.
