    Kirk SG-U reviews

    SG-U Universal Support Grip is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best support grip on the market This is the best bicycle grip on the market today. That's right, you read it correctly, SG-U Universal Support Grip by Kirk is a bicycle grip that has been modified for use as a universal camera/lighting equipment support grip. At the core of this grip is a standard ODI Rogue bicycle grip, still proudly made in Riverside, California. The grip itself is of standard size - 130mm long and 33mm in diameter.The top camera base with standard 1/4 stud is set inside the grip the same way that handlebar would fit on the bicycle. The bottom plate has the 1/4 female thread socket that is recessed about 1/8 into the plate. The two plates are somehow connected internally. My guess is that they're just tightly screwed together and that's what the bottom recess is for - it's used as a slot for special driver that applies the torque to the plate when they're being screwed together. It's also possible that the two are simply press-fit together and glued with some kind of cement. At any rate, that connection itself is exceptionally strong and the Lock-On rings that ODI grips are famous for provide additional level of security - no way that either the top or bottom plate is going to get loose under normal conditions. The tread pattern of the grip is incredibly comfortable and is very tacky to allow for prolonged use without much fatigue. It wicks the moisture quite effectively and keeps your hands from slipping even when you're sweating in 100+ degree heat. Being that these bicycle grips were originally designed for Mountain biking the grip is strong and heavy which adds to stability, but may lead to more fatigue if you use it with heavier equipment for prolonged periods of time.In general it's an absolutely ingenious way of creating the strongest support grip that you can find for use with photo/video/lightning equipment today - start off with strong foundation (ODI Rogue) and add what's needed to make it a photo-equipment ready grip. Nothing else that is sold at B&H Photo today comes even close (and I have tried 7 or 8 other grips, all of them were Made in China and all of them are worthless in my opinion). It has two significant downsides though:1. Price. $* for support grip is a bit excessive, especially since a pair of ODI Rogue grips sets you back only $*. That recess on the bottom plate means that if you want to mount the grip on top of ballhead or a tripod, you need to have longer stud or it won't be able to engage enough of threads to provide a solid foundation. As an example, if you use this grip on top of Kirk Mini Table Top Tripod (B&H # KITT1) you won't have any problems, since the stud on that tripod is fairly long. If however you're using Leica Tabletop Tripod (B&H # LETT), then the SG-U will engage only half a turn worth of threads before bottoming out. This is a fairly significant drawback and the real reason I rate this grip a 4-star and not the 5-star (the price is important, but it's always secondary to function in my book).
