      I bought these handles because a friend of mine showed me his. They are very sturdy and well built, but when I tried them with my RED Scarlet, the camera was so heavy that the handles kept slipping when I lifted the rig off my shoulders...maybe I'll find a way to tighten them.

      I would recommend them if you have a light shoulder rig or dslr...best design I've seen combined for the price.

          I love these handles. I dont know why, but they make holding my camera rig much easier. Big soft hand grips are so comfortable. This unit is solid and light and strong construction. I love how they will slip over a big tripod head like the manfrotto 502. I was hesitant because of the cost. But I must keep them. I also tried the manfroto sympla handels, but they gave me arm pump almost instantly.

          Solid set up

          By AaronM

          from NY

          Comments about SHAPE Quick Handle + Rod Block:

          These hand grips are quickly and easily adjusted. I read a review saying they don't lock in place but I've not had that issue. I even tried to force a slippage and could not. No hand grip set up is perfect for every camera set up, but I feel these are a solid professional choice. It would be nice if the arm attachment at the 15mm bracket was adjustible but you can't best these for the price.

            Extremely comfortable, and extremely secure. I got tired of my Genii handles slipping, the Arri Rosettes on the Shape do not allow for any play whatsoever. Really comfortable grips, too.

              Comments about SHAPE Quick Handle + Rod Block:

              I use these on my hand held rig. They're engineered to last, and provide flexible ease of operation when shooting on your shoulder, or with a quick flick, they're out of they way for tripod operation. No unscrewing, or taking partly down.
              There's no downside to these pro handles, just value for money!

                              These hand grips are perfect. The grips are in the right spot and feel great in you palms. The quick handle feature is awesome for a fast change in angle or even getting the grips out of the way for a second. Worth every penny.

                              I bought these handles because a friend of mine showed me his. They are very sturdy and well built, but when I tried them with my RED Scarlet, the camera was so heavy that the handles kept slipping when I lifted the rig off my shoulders...maybe I'll find a way to tighten them.

                              I would recommend them if you have a light shoulder rig or dslr...best design I've seen combined for the price.

                                  This thing is great. Spring loaded rosettes that allow you adjust the pitch of each handle independently with your thumb(s) without letting go of either side. The rosettes are solid, and give you confidence that it will not slip, and are quite comfortable.

                                  This is better than any of the DSLR gear that i have used, on a build quality in par with Zacuto, but design wise outdoes them.

                                        I recently purchased this item for our main HD camera rig and it is by far the best camera handle system I've used in years, and I've owned many. I was so impressed by it I wrote a detailed review of it here on my blog: [@]
