I was offered a rig by a friend (buying new is still out of my league) because the production company he works for does not use this anymore, it sells for around $1180 full with vest, this arm, sled, battery, monitor and docking stand.

They asked me to come by tomorrow and test it. It appears to be a discontinued model. Does anyone know which one and has any specs on it?

It's not an actual "Steadicam" arm.

It looks to possibly be home made or some obscure ebay unit.

Don't be fooled by the sticker that someone has put on it.

I can't imagine you will find out much information.

Best save up a bit more and put it into something that will retain some value and be tried and tested. 

I'd stay well clear.

Good luck.

Rich.
