    Wimberley CK-550 reviews

    CK-550 Soft-Touch Knob Conversion Kit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice retrofit This conversion improves the Sidekick both functionally and cosmetically. The 5-lobe knob is easier to turn and you can see the movement. I also like the softer touch. The surface is of high density rubber. The old disc knob is of hard polymer. For my Sidekick I opted not to installed the newly included flat washer as shown on the left in the product picture. This allows my Sidekick to have full range of tension. So if you buy this, try with and without it and see which way you prefer. For packing, this knob is thicker and so protudes more onto the side. However the diameter is smaller than the old disc knob. So overall it's a wash.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could have been better!!! An improvement over the old hard plastic one. But still protrudes from the side more than needed. They could have reduced the profile sticking out for ease of transportation and to prevent catching in branches when walking in the forest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the old disk style Worth the money to change out the disk from the older version of the Sidekick. Better feel and easier to grip in bad weather. The cost is small and it get's caught on less in my camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than original Works like a charm. I think this can be used to replace the bottom knob also if you don't have a really big lens. I have the nikon 200-400 and there is plenty of room.
