Should I get the StrongArm 6 with my Small HD DP6?

I'm getting a SmallHD DP6 and considering getting the StrongArm 6 they offer. That said, there are similar products offered by other companies and im wondering if anyone has an opinion on this. Get the StrongArm 6 or get another option by a different company?

Re: Should I get the StrongArm 6 with my Small HD DP6?

I've got a Noga arm kit:

Noga G14CA-CL2 Hold-it Cine Arm Kit G14CA-CL2 B&H Photo Video

I can't compare it to the SmallHD one since I've never used or seen teh StrongArm. I can say that I've never been in a position where I couldn't get the articulated arm into the position I wanted. Sometimes it takes a little adjusting but in the end it gets there.

The StrongArm seems much more affordable but when I got my Noga there weren't many choices out there.

I have the Small HD dp6 and I bought also the strongarm 6 (from SmallHD) and it works like a charm and I'm very happy i got it.

I've got the strongarm, noga and a couple redrock arms. The noga and strongarm are essentially interchangeable in terms of quality. Very happy with either one coming out of the bag.

I wrote a review of the redrock arms here on dvinfo because i hated them so much. heh.
