Hi There,

I'm looking at picking up an 8x8 overhead, and looking for any advice on which one. How are the American Grip overheads? I've rented I believe a Avenger one before, and it didn't seem the most sturdy.

Thx.

American or Matthews are good and used by a lot of grip crews in feature filmaking.
