Hello all,

Just curious if anyone has the colour/weight ranges/approx. price of the different springs available for the 3A, and where to get them? (I'm going to guess with Mr. Luna)...
I'm flying alot of DV's right now, and well..the 30lbs weightcage would be nice to eliminate, but my gold springs seem to love that cage with a passion. <_<

Thanks in advance!

Hi Charles,

Contact Hugo from RigEngineering at admin@steadyrig.com, he can provide you with accurate specs on all components of the 3a arm, he is very knowledgable, offers great service and is highly regarded on this forum. Take a look at www.steadyrig.com.

Better late then never...

Hi Charles,

There are a couple of companies that do Arm and Spring maintenance/upgrades/modifications...

Robert Luna of course but also:

- Daniel Sauve
- Howard Smith (MK-V)
- Hugo Langer and his Silver Spring conversion (Rig Engineering)
- Tiffen (They still have springs in stock for the 3A/EFP Arm, last time I checked)


Spring Color: Median Load: (+/- 2.5lbs)
Red 37
Green 40
Blue 45
Black 51
Gold 54

EFP 24 to 39 lbs
3A lightweight 29 to 47 lbs
3A standard 37 to 57 lbs
Master Broadcast 40 to 57 lbs
Master Film/Elite 42 to 67 lbs

I'm also including the Master Arms as in the past people have substituted 3A springs with Master Springs to reach higher load capability.

I hope that helps.
