Hi Guys,

Quick question, how does one use bungee cords with a red spring 3a arm?

I have a shoot coming up with a fully loaded digibeta, which should be fine but might just be on the edge of my Red Spring arm's capacity, so it would be helpful if I can get a few more pounds of lift out of it.

I've tried attaching them to various places but I can't seem to find a place that attaches firmly without the possibility of getting the cord caught in the arm or restricting the boom range too much.

The bungee gag works by wrapping it around the sections of the arm. The long trunion screws work really well when you use rubber bands. I believe its 2 pounds of lift per band used???? I personally have never had to do either trick. Jerry would know the best, he is who I learned the trick from.
