Just curious what the post diameter is on the Archer2. Can't seem to find any info on that specifically.

1,5" If I recall correctly because the original archer had a 3a (or at least 3a style) gimbal and the 3a had a 1,5" centerpost.

Alas, not exactly1.500, although a 1.500 clamp on it will work fine. Ask Tiffen directly if you have a more critical dimensional need.

Hey Jerry!

If I want to buy a post collar for docking in low mode on an Archer2 sled, will a 1.5" collar work?

Hey there everyone, I just measured my Archer 2 with a caliper instrument. I did it a couple of times, and either I suck at this or the instrument is a bit faulty, but I got slightly different measurements each time:

 

1st Round:
 
34.97 mm
1.37.65 inch
1 and 3/8 of an inch
 
2nd Round:
 
34.93 mm
1.37.50 inch
1 and 3/8 of an inch
 
3rd Round:
 
34.83 mm
1.37.10 inch
1 and 3/8 of an inch
 
I am assuming a bit or decimal error maybe OK.

Hey Christian, Tom Wills helped me with a few things on my Archer2. He measured around the the Top post and Bottom post of the sled. The top was consistent at 1.5, but the bottom had a variance like the measurements you're getting. For what its worth, I'm thinking you're accurate with the measurements.

Thanks. I would like to replace my monitor bracket hence the measuring. Did you do something similar? If so how did you take off and put on the monitor system. Thanks.
