Is anyone out there adapting their post to be able to use various sleds with the same arm without replacing the arm post itself?

I don't see how you would not have to replace the arm post with one that adapts- either 5/8 post to 1/2 inch or vice versa.

Hi John,

 

Do you have an arm post with a removable pin? My G-50x standard arm post (1/2in) can swap for a 5/8in size with an adapter from Tiffen. 

 

Happy flying!

 

Lisa

Tom Wills made me an adapter that sits on the arm post. Mine is to go from PRO to flyer size but I'm sure you can make different sizes.

Thanks guys looks like I'm going to find a machine shop. I'd have thought finding a "little hat" for the end of my post an easier goal.
