Product Highlights
  • Aircraft Aluminum
  • Nickel Plated
  • Lightweight

The ElementS 15mm Ultra Rod (3") is a strong, durable yet extremely lightweight aluminum rod that won't weigh down your camera support rig. With its nickel plate finish over aircraft grade aluminum, the Ultra Rod is strong enough to support most zoom lenses while weighing only one third of an equivalent stainless steel rod.

Note! Rods are normally used in pairs. This is a single rod only.

ElementS has developed a unique, low-cost solution for weight conscious hand-held shooters. Our new Ultra-Light iris rods are made from seamless extruded aircraft grade aluminum. They are precision ground then finished with a durable nickel plating.

    Comments about Elements 15mm Ultra Rod (3"):

    These are quality light weight rods, I used these to support a 11lb counterweight and so far they have held up.

    One thing I didn't notice from the photo is that there is a pretty sever bevel at the ends of these rods, which I found odd, one end of my setup has 15mm rod holes that are blocked off at the other end. So only a small amount of the un-beveled portion of this rode went inside, at first I was concerned but it still got the job done,

    Just something to be aware of, I'd probably have gotten a different rod knowing that but these still worked.
