Hello everybody,

I was wondering if any of you have ever had a broken/bent dynamic spin & docking bracket.

I was balancing dynamically a 535 and I had some doubts about if my bracket (Tiffen?s original) would give up and drop my sled and Craimont?s 535.

Is this going to hold a BL IV eventually? :(

Can I trust the design and construction?

Thank you

Yes, had that happen to me, but i must admit it was my own design and not from any reliable company.
I had a BL4 on it and it snapped when I was putting it on the rod, but I had my 2 hands on the post luckily!

Since then I changed it for a much tougher, Stainless Steel pin.
