hey guys..


i have been going through the treads regarding rt motion and varizoom...


both have positive response from its users...which is making my decision a bit difficult..


i want to buy a back up unit...it would be great if you guys can point me towards the right direction..


I just want to know which one is more solid built, good range and works great even with stiffer lenses..




best regards,

Hey Kapil,

For a backup, try the Bartek. It is tried, tested and very economical.

What is your main system? I would recommend the Bartech as backup too. Get an analog one and you'll be able to pull through all the stiffest lens for cheap and with little chance of having issues. This thing is a tank.

I used my BFD's (No 23 and others )as my main FIZ for quite a few years before I could afford a Preston .As I have stated before the BFD system is rock solid tried and tested over many years (14 years with one of mine) and will do you well for your career.

Keep in mind that if you get the digital bartech, you can use preston or heden motors.
