Jordan,

If my hazy memory serves me correctly Pro Gear (aka Sprint) was based in Denmark and was actively selling various stabilizer components on ebay circa 2004-2005. Seems like they disappeared after a few years. There's some discussion of Pro Gear in the boards from that era.

Regarding curious gear on ebay. From whence did the Flycam Prophet Pro derive? Perhaps a Movcam product from China?

the Flycam thing comes from the creators of the Basson.

Daniel,

Have Basson rigs ever had that style sled (as depicted in the photos on the ebay listing?). If the rig in question is a Movcam product this customer support warning from an Australian distributor could explain why the owner is selling. Looks like every major component of the Movcam gear has notable "usage and safety issues".

http://www.movcam.com.au/support.htm

The support page concludes with this warning: "any purchase from Movcam is made with your own risk until further notice".

Hey,

Just trying to help here, I don't know these guys,
I just know the Basson guy's face, and it's the same person it the pictures for the ad.
Maybe the Basson guy bought the chinese stuff and now is selling it, who knows?
