Does the Manfrotto 503 Pan Bar fit the Vinten pro6 hvd

Hi there

Just wondering if anyone knows if any of the Manfrotto pan bars ( probably the 503 ) fit the vinten pro6 hdv ?

I know that some of the replacement parts from manfrotto and vinten are the same product.

many thanks in advance.
Ian

Re: Does the Manfrotto 503 Pan Bar fit the Vinten pro6 hvd

Just to cover my ass here, I can't say "I know" as I don't.

I can, however, make a pretty reasonable deduction that as the basis for the Pro series was, indeed, the Manfrotto 503 (though significantly re - engineered internally by Vinten) that the pan bar fixing would remain the same.

That any help?

Morning all and a very happy new year to you all.

Simple answer is no. Although the head was based on the Manfrotto design, there were a few modifications, one being the pan bar. Im afraid itll have to be a Vinten pan bar, part number 3219-104
