Hi Guys and Gals,

 

I own a clipper 2 and would like to run the larger top stage from the Ultra 2 line, mainly for the Larger standard dovetail plate as that works with more accessories than the thinner Clipper plate. Anyone have any ideas on how or even if this swap could be done?

Did you speak to Tiffen?

I'm not sure but i do not believe they sell the ultra 2 top stage by its self.

I have a call into them, I would like to know if anyone has done a topstage swap or if anyone has some input on it.

They won't sell you the topstage to do it. If you could find a used one it would probably require custom wiring and machining which could get expensive quick.

Having owned two Clippers; a 2 and 24 I understand why you'd like to swap. Whenever it was 5-6 years ago they would not do it.  Maybe that's changed.

 

I'll follow this thread to see how it goes.

 

Good luck!

Modularity....they have a different business model, why don't you get a custom plate made?

Hi Dash. I also have a Clipper 2 and have been considering the same thing. I know this thread is old but did you manage to find out anything about it? I have done a bit of research myself.
