I've used it and it's older brothers over the years. Never liked the experience.

 

The boom height does not go as low as a pee wee, nor as high as a pee wee. There's very little clearence under the chassis and you'll find yourself beached on cable matts. The board system is seriously lacking and the low mode brackets push the levelling head farther out than nessessary.

 

I'm waiting to see their Fisher 10 rip off.

I have had to use their dollies on many occasions and always regretted it. All of Daves experiences and more. Better to go with a Panther or Magnum dolly in my opinion.

I saw their "fisher ten" rip off computer drawing on a newsletter somewhere, but it hasn't been mentioned anywhere else.

Hi guys, sorry I'm late :)

 

Their new dolly, which if I remember correctly was called the Albatros, was on display at the Cinec in 2014 in Munich. My opinion is biased and so I'll keep it to myself, excpet to say that it continues the tradition of Cine Tech dollies. That may be why you haven't seen one anywhere else yet.
