Distribute the weight of your heavier gimbal/camera rig between two people or create longer-running gimbal moves with the RigWheels Lightning Rod. This system suspends your gimbal rig from a Slingshot 20 Vibration Isolator mounted on a PortaRail, enabling each end of the pipe to be carried by an operator or grip.
The upturned "U" design of the pipe clamp enables you to quickly dock your rig using two separately available light stands. Supporting up to approximately 20 lb rigs, the Lightning Rod kit includes two 40" PortaRail sections, two pipe clamp light stand mounts, and two end caps in addition to the Slingshot 20.
RigWheels Cloud Mount Slingshot 20 Vibration Isolator

Especially suitable for setups where a hood, roof, or trunk mount is impractical, the Slingshot 20 adds elastic tubing to the standard Cloud Mount configuration for increased vibration isolation.
Additional components include two RigPlates, eight cables, tube connectors, wire cables, thumb knobs, bolts, and hardware. Like the rest of the RigWheels line, the modular Slingshot 20 features quick, reliable mounting and can be scaled to the size of your camera rig using additional components.
