I am selling my beloved PRO Sled that has served me well these past 15 years or so.  You can see all the details by clicking here.  Price is $11,750 US and I'm willing to work out a payment plan if need be, I just want it to go to a good op.

 

This is an SD sled that has been upgraded to the SteadyRig Anton Bauer battery hanger.  Don't let the SD aspect throw you.  I've used and still use a TB-6 but you can easily go HD and either wire down the post or just run it out front as I've done on the few occasions I used an HD monitor.  Sled is ready to go minus the monitor and while it shows the scuffs of some years of use, it's a fantastic sled that flies straight.  I shot everything on my reel with it, so that's gotta stand for something.  

 

I'm also including a one day workshop if buyer is interested, in or around CT.  I was one of the instructors at the Calamigos workshops back in the day and have 22 years experience in the rig.  Besides general operating tips and stretching exercises, I'll cover such important concepts as "How to say 'Ya know this isn't really a steadicam shot' Without Sounding Like Your Just Lazy", "How to Sleep On Set So No One Notices", and more!!

 

So check it out, email me if interested, come and take a look, and buy a great sled.

 

Thanks

 

Dave

2 people very interested but no one committed to buy yet. Changing package to include a full pack of unchewed gum. Also, have noodled on a way to easily wire for hd down the post and can share all info.

I too have the same jbox and post. I switch the front cam power to HD SDI sent it down the post and out the opening in the inner tube. It's need 3 years and works great. Best $200 upgrade ever.

Some one buy it

Wow, wouldn't have thought that would work as i understood they needed to be shielded.  How long have you been using it this way and any problems?

 

For those looking, one offer on the table that's slightly less than i was looking for and one forthcoming.  Someone's gonna end up with a great rig.

3 years. No problems. Chris Konash did the install for me. I bought everything we needed through Reid tools and marker tech. The HD signal does not go into the lower j box so you have to send video via BNC to your monitor and power only via the lemo. I think this limits and potential shielding issues. Though I 'm no electrical engineer so I could be wrong and lucky.

Very good to know.  I will pass this along to whoever purchases the rig.  Konash knows his stuff so I'm sure it's excellent work.
