Would I lose much by going with a 3" grip head like this:
http://www.dmkfoto.c...ProductCode=630
Instead of the standard 2.5" that has multiple holes on one side and a 5/8" hole on the other? I've been using the Impact Grip heads on my light stands (not c-stands) from B&H, which I like a lot but looking for grip arms, this deal at DMK seems really good but the head looks a little different. Any suggestions?

Looks fine to me.. I see the larger and smaller flag guides as well as (you can just see) the 3rd guide for small dot & finger nets.. should be fine.. great price!

..tho I prefer American Grip :P

Has the same look as most Far East/China products. May be fine, but I'd worry about inferior castings cracking at the worst possible moment.

save your time and money. These are NOT good quality. The holes are Not standard sizes, and there are not holes small enough to utilize a flag in the head.
