        Comments about Redrock Micro microBalance Counterweight Starter Kit:

        I had to buy this to add weight to redrock micro rig. I prefer these weights to the newer version, these stay attached to each other with bolts and don't shift at all when in use.

          Very good little weight, although if you are using the Redrock system like I am, you're going to need at least 4-6lbs. so be sure get an additional weight or two. I currently counter balance the Canon 7D, Matte Box, Manhattan 8.9 LCD Screen, follow focus, etc.

              Comments about Redrock Micro microBalance Counterweight Starter Kit:

              Works to balance my DSLR shoulder rig, but by increasing the weight, the system is more physically straining to use for extended periods of time. You must have a well designed shoulder rig system to utilize this weight effectively.

                    An absolute must have once you start building you camera's rail system. Good quality build, and it does it's job which is to balance the rail system when it's on your tripod and your shoulder.
