Hey steadi veterans,

I've been flying a zephyr for about 2 years now and I'm starting to run into some limiting situations, so it's time for me to upgrade. I mostly work in the broadcast world, so the cameras never exceed 35-40 lbs fully built. I've received advice from various operators as to which route I should take and I just need a little more guidance. I'd like to keep my budget for a complete system under 30k. I was thinking Pro arm and Pro vest, but I'm not sure which sled to go with, so any input/advice from the vets would be awesome! Thanks everyone.

GPI PRO CINE LIVE. I just upgraded from my Zephyr to that. Best decision in my life. And yes it is tally and live ready (hence the name).

I'm also in NYC if you want to meet and chat one day.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the input and I'll be doing some serious homework haha. Victor, you and I actually took a workshop together and you recently worked with my gf on an ABC Family show, I heard it was a nightmare!
