Quality but a little pricey
A quality product. Does make it easier to grasp the knobs especially if wearing gloves. Somewhat pricey though.
robbery to charge for these
It is robbery for Losmandy to charge for these. They're the same as the clutch knobs that come with the mount except they have three "handles" for a better grip. If these handles are needed, they should come with the mount as standard equipment, not as a $125 extra item. They do help, but I'll be darned if I'll let them rob me of $125 for something so simple. I've returned them after realizing what a bad deal it is. And if reflects poorly on Losmandy.
