From my experience with the arm it booms nicely until you hit the end of travel at which point it locks up. You can see in this video at :48 how the arm flops around when extended all the way. I would just not go that low or high with it because that kind of movement would show up in the camera.
I had the 11-44lb spring package and never touched, serviced or opened up the arm. It never failed or acted funny on me. One thing that is tricky is flipping the socket block to go to the regular operating side. They have a tool for this but it still took quite some time.
I'm pretty sure I would choose this arm over any other arm besides the PRO arm. Probably. It got the job done and has no friction. Also unlike the 3a style arms it reacts pretty much the same with lighter loads.
This has been my experience with the arm and you should experience the arm for yourself and come up with your own judgment. Its a very personal thing and maybe I just got used to this arm over the two years I worked with it. Its a great arm though.
