I have a steadicam provid, have made some upgrade to the system (removed green monitor and replaced with tvlogic HD on a custom built monitor bracket) running on upgraded vest and 3A arm.
next in line for an upgrade is the topstage. currently had some really bad side-side slipping issues, i guess due to an inherent design fault with that topstage, there is no lock and after many years of use the worm screw system has gotten loose.

After a different topstage, either if someone has one around that would be a better fit that they are looking to offload. or if they can point me in the direction of a good and reasonably priced system. thinking the MK-V standard system looks pretty good to me.

Hi Justin

Take care with the gimbal.
Provid gimbal was designed to carry a weight, and maybe with your upgrades, you are using heavies cameras with 3A arm and vest, and now with the new topstage.
just my 2 cent.
