Rated 5 out of 5 by from 24 Rat Rig Is Just What I Needed! I've been wanting to purchase a slider for my wedding video business for some time, and have been looking at the many models, lengths and reviews here on B&H's site. I wanted something that wasn't too large or unwieldy, fairly light in weight, but also built strong so that it could handle the rigors of the job without breaking. I also required one that operated smoothly, easily and quietly, and that would enable me to capture some great movement shots of people, objects and scenery. The 24 Rat Rig has happily met all those requirements! It has a very solid build, and I suspect it will hold up well under use. The optional legs I purchased with it, are also very sturdy, and attached easily and securely to the main slider body as well. They are very adjustable, and will level the Rig with ease too. I thought very seriously about getting the longer version, but then thought about the length of shots I typically need in my wedding shoots, and how that might apply to the length of shots on a longer rig. The length of most shots I need in my productions, other than those that focus on a speech or longer talking scene, often run around six to ten seconds. So, the 24 slider fits my needs perfectly since that is about the amount of time it takes to slowly slide the camera along the Rat Rig track. For me, the longer slider is not necessary and would be overkill based on my needs. My only single complaint is the drag screw that slows the slider's rate of movement. It's not as smooth as I'd like it to be when in a tighter position (slowing the slider's speed). It's a little too loose, or a little too tight. What I mean by that is that when it's loose, it doesn't seem to provide as much drag as I'd like on the slider, and it slides along a little too easily... or faster than I'd like it to. When the screw is too tight, it tends to stick here and there, and thus produces uneven movement in your scene. Not sure what the solution is here. Maybe a teflon screw?
