What is the opinion of the Archer2, and what would you guys suggest????? Archer2 or something else for the same price??

The Archer2 meets my requirements but should I be looking at something else?... or should I look to finance for something bigger???

Thanks

I have tried both the Archer2 and Clipper/Ultra systems.
And for me, the archer was a little to small - but that's only my opinion.
Chris Fawcett had another opinion about that, but one thing is sure. The Archer2 feels and looks like the bigger rigs.
I would go for the Archer2 S - or even better the Archer 2SE. You'd really love the motorized stage, once you try it.

This is what Chris wrote about the Archer2S: http://www.steadicam...h...&hl=archer2

I greatly appreciate the input, thanks!

I read what yourself and others had to say on the forms Chris, and all the responses sound very good. I have been looking at the system for a while now and it just seems like a great option.

Thanks for the reassurance!
