I need to do a low low mode shot with an Epic. 13 inches off the ground. Does anyone make a 8 inch riser? Or lower-er for my use?

Before we all start suggesting alternatives to doing the shot. I have a PRO2 which I upgraded to HD before PRO released their HD upgrade. I can't use a super post for the shot because it's not compatible with my sled do to age of sled and my HD conversion. I also can't do the shot hard mounted to a dolly.

If some one in NY has something that would work I'd love to rent it today and tomorrow. I'd also buy it.

Thanks,
Aaron

Eric,
What kind if weight can that handle? We have a pretty nice Epic setup with master primes. It weight about the same as a stripped down Alexa in present form. Do you think it can handle it?

Thanks,
A
