  • 1Description

The ElementS 15mm Ultra Rod (18") is a strong, durable yet extremely lightweight aluminum rod that won't weigh down your camera support rig. With its nickel plate finish over aircraft grade aluminum, the Ultra Rod is strong enough to support most zoom lenses while weighing only one third of an equivalent stainless steel rod.

Note: Rods are normally used in pairs. This is a single rod only.

ElementS has developed a unique, low-cost solution for weight conscious hand-held shooters. Our new Ultra-Light iris rods are made from seamless extruded aircraft grade aluminum. They are precision ground then finished with a durable nickel plating.
Weight Comparison:

15mm Stainless Steel, 12" length - 240 grams
15mm Ultra Rods, 12" length - 85 grams

ElementS Rods are available in both 15mm and 19mm sizes, in 6", 8", 12", 15", 18" and 24" lengths.

    Element Technica 791-0228 reviews

    15mm Ultra Rod (18") is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, and solid So far they seems very strong, and solid. Switched from carbon fiber rods, as I'm worried about carbon fiber cracking. Carbon fiber did feel a bit more smooth when sliding followfocus, and mattebox on, not to say the Ultra Rods aren't smooth in it's own right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and durable Not much more to say, these are very lightweight but high quality aluminum rods. I would recommend it to anyone doing any handheld work.
