Really like this mount as a grab and go setup. Super easy to get started. 3 star alignment works well. Holds my c9.25 with two 2.5kg counter weights and one 2.5 weight. Only a couple negatives: The center bolt to the tri-pier is not well thought out. Kind of hard to get it started. Easily scratches the paint where it comes out of the tripod. Difficult to get it both tightened well and leveled at the same time Other gripe is that you will scratch the tube on the tri-pier with normal use. It’s sliding rings that are metal on a painted metal surface and there’s no way to avoid scratches. Minor complaints and the mount works just great in the field.
Am waiting on a center bolt, so I can attach mount to the tri-pier. Have not used item yet.
