Hi guys,

I an almost sure there is a thread somewhere that has to do with the exact same problem I am having. Just can't seem to find it.

When balancing the sled everything sits perfectly, however while still on the docking pin, when I pan the rig 180 degrees, the rig goes off balance like it is back heavy all if a sudden. Pan it back again and it sits perfectly.

Is this perhaps the bearings that needs to be reset?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Its the shims in the gimbal,  at least I think thats what it was,  it has happened to all of us who owned the efp gimbal.


Tiffen went through mine and sorted it out . . .  


Hit up Dan Ikeda or Robert Orf and they can give you directions to fixing it up
