Hi there. Stupid question requiring probably a short answer.

I'm looking to get a backup sled and the 3a keeps popping up as a financially viable option (I really am talking about just an "Oh s#*t!" backup). At present I own a G-50 arm. Knowing nothing outside of having operated a modded 3A once for about 20 minutes, I need someone to tell me if the 3A sled is compatible with the G-50 arm. I searched for an answer to this before posting and didn't find one.

Thanks for any help.

the 3a gimbal yoke is 5/8" and the g50 arm uses a 3/4" post -- but you can make or buy adaptors for that.

Tiffen sells a proper quick-change adapter (although you could machine your own).

The G-50's come with either .5, .625, or .740 inch adapter posts and it is easy to switch from one to the other.

FYI, the G-70's typically have a .740 post, but there are alternate posts for .5 and .625 sized gimbals.
