The Letus Telescopic Support Rods provide an innovative solution when working with a mattebox or other front-of-lens accessory on your DSLR or camcorder. With the simple twist of a thumb screw, you can extend your mattebox forward or back, positioning it at the precise distance your lens requires. More importantly, when it's time to swap out lenses there's no need for a swing-away mattebox--or for removing the mattebox at all. Just extend it out of the way, change your lens, and slide the mattebox back into position. Simple, efficient, hassle-free.
- The telescoping rods in stock configuration are 24cm in length collapsed and 33cm when fully extended.
- There is an interchangeable 9cm length (15mm diameter) in front of the telescoping clamp onto which you can mount standard 15mm accessories for extending.
- 9cm lengths use Letus' standard female threading, so any Letus rods V2 or Raptor extensions can be threaded in place of them.
- Rods are custom CNC milled from high-grade stainless steel. They have absolutely no flex and, unlike aluminum and carbon fiber rods, they will not easily scratch or nick.
