D-Box
J-Box
Preston MDR mounting bracket
PRO centerpost (new-style collars at each end, hex key to telescope)
2 x docking clamps
PRO Gimbal w/5" wrapgrip
Pro II Battery Module w/recorder bracket

Transvideo SuperBright Cinemonitor III w/AB battery bracket
PRO II Monitor (non-functioning, will include free on request)
2 x PRO monitor arms (if you ever need to run two monitors, fore & aft)

XCS Digital Level (w/adapter cable to work with Cinemonitor)

10 AB Hytron 50 batteries (1 yr old)
AB Quad Charger with discharger & latest firmware

2x7" dovetail plates
2x9" dovetail plates
2x15mm rods (attach to dovetail)

3" oversized wrapgrip for low mode

2 each PRO-Camera Power cables (PV Genesis, PV XL, PV LW, Arri, Moviecam)

1 Tiffen deluxe docking bracket (great for spin balance)
1 PRO standard docking bracket

PRO rain covers for sled, PRO monitor and Cinemonitor
Necessary tools & extras
Camera Truck Wall-Mount Bracket (very handy!)

Rig was serviced in March and in the one year I've had it, it performed flawlessly through three features, some commercials and a TV pilot.

Transvideo is exactly 1 year old and, as my backup monitor, was never used except for one shot this April Fool's Day (coincidence??) when "Old Green" died on me. Transvideo is now the primary monitor and with the AB bracket and battery it will spin balance perfectly. You can have GPI replace the power supply on the PRO II monitor ($5,500) or you can junk it and buy yourself a different backup (or primary) monitor - your choice to make. XCS digital level works great and is compatible with almost any SD monitor using the included adapter cables. Batteries are one year old and the charger works perfectly.

No arm, no vest, no Preston, no Garfield. Asking $28,000

There's a very similar rig down the page where the asking price is $6,500 more. You planning on leaving that guy a comment, too?

My sled does include a PRO II monitor. It just happens to need a $5,500 power supply upgrade in order to be functional.

$28,000 + $5,500 = $33,500 (For a sled that comes with both a PRO II monitor with a brand new power supply and a $4,400 Transvideo Superbright backup monitor)

...all for exactly $1,000 less than the other sled that comes with only one monitor - the sled that somehow didn't attract the attention of the Price Police.

But I have to say thanks, Juan. Every time you comment on my ad, it goes to the top of the page. You're my new best friend!

If it's one thing you have not done with your comments, it's help me sell this rig. How I deserved that remark in the first place, when I've since proven that I'm asking less than other guys, I'll never know. The fact that you placed your own ad a day later makes me wonder even more.

Good luck with that current sale, by the way. You'll notice that I haven't hijacked your ad with comments on the asking price. I'd have to be pretty uncool to engage in behavior like that.

It was never my intention to start a discussion with you about the price of your rig, I just wanted to emphasize that I think some used equipment sold for a price too high.
I did not intentionally harm you in any way, if you feel that this has been, honestly ask forgiveness.
My ad sales today has no relation with the comment about this, you understand, after 18 years operating steadicam really know the difference between a PRO and a EFP. There is no dark intention behind this but anyway I apologize.

Apology accepted.

And now I will apologize to any prospective buyers who had to witness this exchange and to the other sellers on the forum who likely don't appreciate my ad appearing at the top of the page for two days straight, much less having their asking prices discussed in another thread. I just posted an ad. The rest of it kind of fell in my lap and I'm sorry if it affected any other sellers.

Best,

Matt
