The Arrow 55 is a 100mm true fluid head intended for use with heavily configured ENG/EFP camcorders weighing up to 55.0 lbs (25.0 kg). It features 7-step fluid drag, 4-step spring counterbalance, and an oversized 100mm sliding quick-release camera plate. The LED illuminated bubble level and drag controls are rear mounted for easy operator access and monitoring, and a second rosette is provided for left- or two-handed configurations. For peace of mind, the pan and tilt locks utilize calliper disc brakes for reliable, short-throw fixing.
The 1589G Sprinter II one-stage aluminum alloy tripod features Sprint-Loks for dependable, one-touch stage locking without bending over. For easy transport at the end of the shoot, built-in leg clips hold the legs together, and the integrated handle is positioned for perfect balance with the head still mounted. Used in conjunction with the included 990 Sprinter II mid-level spreader, complete stability is assured regardless of terrain.
Designed and built for actual daily use, the roomy Arrow 870 soft case answers operator frustrations with real solutions. The head-end cradle is padded and reinforced for protection and puncture resistance. The carrying strap is asymmetrically positioned for optimal balance, and a convenient ID pocket simplifies travel.
As a system, the 1718 represents a thoroughly engineered support designed meet and exceed the needs of the most demanding ENG/EFP professionals. For peace of mind, it carries a 3-year parts and labor warranty, and worldwide support.
