              Comments about CPM Camera Rigs Sidewinder Basic Offset Shoulder Kit:

              The main issue I have with this device is the mounting plate locking mechanism is less then adequate. It came with two different sized threaded locks. One is two small and doesnt lock down the mounting plate at all and the other is so large that it barely threads on enough to hold. I need gear I can trust to support camera and accesories, I don't trust this piece at all.

                Comments about CPM Camera Rigs Sidewinder Basic Offset Shoulder Kit:

                after using two sidewinder setups for concert videography over one year, both are chipping and cracking. one is held together with some very advantageous gaff taping, while the other has been made to work with various replacement parts we had lying around. if you are familiar with other brands such as redrock or zacuto, i would suggest there rigidity over this rig. if you are lightly, rarely and carefully using this shoulder mount rig, ya - it'll due.

                    Not sure what the other reviewer is thinking, but this is not just plastic, it's injection molded carbon filled polycarbonate that is both extremely strong and extremely light. I've order many pieces including this rig from [...]. He's very active on several video forums [...] With all the components they sell, you're never limited to just one rig, you can buy many pieces and customize as you see fit. I like to call them adult legos. You won't regret getting one of these rigs, and they're constantly coming out with new designs and products.

                    Nice rig, like the carbon fibre rods. Components are only cheap plastic tho.
