it is a great arm that is hassel free. i love that you can take it apart to clean and reassemble it yourself.
Hugo's service is top notch and you get you replies within a day. It's also very light and slick.
Only thing is that its hard to make an adjustment on the fly with the arm wrench. But once you get
into a good workflow presetting the arm before each shot requirement, its all smooth sailing from there.
And did I mention excellent customer service? :)

I picked one up late last year, the build quality is amazing. Also agree that being able to take it down and clean it is a plus. For now, it's my "Pro" arm. (Until I get the new one) 63lbs max carrying will get me through most jobs. It really is bang for the buck. I do get the usual spring boing noises once and a while. :rolleyes:

Randy i'll second the above comments.
Through beaches, jungles, deserts (Salt, leaches and sand :P) I've never had any problems with mine.
It works well, its tough, its easy and it simple making it virtually bullet proof.
As louis said it isn't a PRO or G70 but for the weight range and $$ outlay it's a pretty good buy.
Hugos a top bloke and easy to deal with as well.
