Kupo is based in Taiwan, and has access to better quality material than the companies on mainland China, in my opinion.
Service has been good, direct with the factory sales manager and prompt delivery of spare-parts, when needed.

I noticed another manufacturer of grip gear, Kupo. They seem to be cheaper than the usual suspects like Avenger and Matthews. Is the quality any good? I've read here some people like their grip heads and c-stands, how about their overhead roller stands (ie. skyhighs)?
Bush Telly has been using Kupo gear for some years without any problems. I checked orginally with a local hire company in Christchurch "Hang up" who have Kupo and Manfrotto/Avenger gear. They said Kupo gear lasted about 5 years in a hire environment, while Manfroto lasted forever.
So we bought Kupo because we have a careful crew and the price is much lower. I think its very well made.
