Does anyone know if there are any mods out there for the Provid sled?  Or does anyone know what other sleds may have the same lower thread/terminal connection for the sled to the battery/monitor section in order to use those mods?  

 

Basically, I would like a lower profile and easier to pack sled and the original Provid bottom side is quite bulky.

 

Thanks

As far as i know, the Provid has the same centerpost as the Archer and presumably the same threads on the folding part of the centerpost. For the Archer, i know of two off the shelf mods. One from MK-V, and one from Hofmann Teknik in sweden. Another option which i have done to my Archer, is to use a combination of off the shelf 15mm rods and clamps, and a couple of custom machined pieces to make it fit together. My rig is a lot more compact than a standard Archer or Provid now when i want it to. It can also expand to spread the masses for more inertia when that is needed.
