I got this lesson yesterday from Garrett advising an operator re Tango and using his existing cameras rather than looking for the right one: the tail is wagging the dog.
What you want is the slickest and fastest and most professional way to change your posts.
If you start with "I want to use my old posts," you are into a less-than-satisfactory adapter with vey thin walls, and it is neither slick or fast as it should and can be.
What you want is posts that work perfectly with your current arm. They can easily be made (.740 to .625) is various lengths so you have the same compliment of posts that you had with you old arm.
Small price to pay for performance on set.

I wrote 'old' posts but I should have written 'new' as they are less than a week old. I've been using a 3A arm with a locked-in post and desperately wanted posts that would spin so got some Pro posts w/collars. It was days after that, that I decided to give a G70 I'd been eyeballing for a while, a shot. Only upon possession did I realize the .740 wasn't just on the Master Series....oops! With potentially new posts on the horizon my recent purchase became my 'old' posts, ha.
I understand what your saying though and it's good advice.
Thank you : )
