To have my Merlin pan flat I added these home made antler. 

 

I use

- manfrotto nanoclamp - to connect to the merlin. 

1/4" screw to 1/2" zacuto rail connection  ( the nanocamp has holes for 1/4 and 3/th screws) 

1" zacuto rail

1 Zacuto z grip

 10" male to female and 7" zacuto rails

 

2-4 clamps as weights. Z grips also work. 

 

 

The rig seems to fly much better than previously. Now seems I just go crazy by the play in the hinges.....

Kyle,

What are you using as the end weights? any links to what they are?
