Product Highlights
  • Allows Skimmer Ground Pod to use Wimberley II Tripod Head

The Wimberley RB-100 Riser Block allows you to use the Wimberley Head Version II on the original Skimmer ground pod. It can also be used to give you additional height when using the Skimmer II ground pod.

The Riser Block can be mounted on any 3/8"-16 stud mount on a tripod, monopod or ground pod for an additional 1" of height under any tripod head with a 3/8"-16 mounting hole. A 3/8-1/4" reducer bushing can be used to install the RB-100 on a 1/4" tripod or monopod stud (not included). You can stack Riser Blocks in increments for additional height as needed.

        Comments about Wimberley RB-100 Riser Block:

        While this is sold by Wimberley with stated use for the Wimberley Head II on the Skimmer, it is also required when using the RRS Pan Gimbal head on the same Skimmer. The center part of the skimmer is flush with the sides so any moving gimbal head needs to be raised above that to rotate. Standard screw mount allows my RRS to function as it should.

        Like others, 4 stars for the price.

        Comments about Wimberley RB-100 Riser Block:

        Michael over Wimberley recommended this item so that my 27lb monster lens, actually an Astro Berlin 800mm f/5, would have enough clearance to be used with the WH-200 Gimbal head. It worked perfectly!

          4 stars, just for the price, but apart from everything else, it is just great. It is a necessary attachment to use your skimmer with a wimberly WH 200

            Must needed accessory if you are using a Wimberley Gimbal head. Little over priced though.
