Yeah, I know what you mean. I've played with it a bit and just haven't felt comfortable with monkey'ing around with adding/removing accessories and re-balancing on the wedding day. Especially when the percentage of shots I'd use my accessories for are fairly small in comparison to the "regular" setup. Not only that, I use an A1, which is already close to the weight limit for the Merlin gimbal, so I don't see any need to test that and break it.
