Klassen Vest with Master Arm?Is there problems?
Posted 27 August 2006 - 12:18 PM
Scanned the forum for info on this topic, but couldn't find anything. I am considering replacing my master vest with a klassen back mount. A while back before I was considering I thought I had read about some potential problems with this combination. Any feedback I could get on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time. Regards, Beau Chaput

July this year during a live show one of the titanium springs snapped!Rob Luna did a wonderful job repairing the arm and also put new bearings in!Now it works better than ever before!! From what I've been told the spring would have snapped anyway (it was one of the early arms) no matter which vest I would have been using!!
So I think it's a great combination and I don't think you have to worry about anything!

Robert Luna did an Overhaul/Upgrade of my Master Series arm last June for $3774.65.
He gave me that price after going over my arm and discussing what he saw and what I wanted.
He has a set price list for different items but he can give you a more detailed quote based on his examination.
I had given him a three week time frame, the arm was back in ten days with all the original parts he replaced in a plastic bag and he was within $56 dollars of his original quote.
The work was first rate and I'm very happy with the arm's performance.
I think Robert is in that select group of Steadicam vendors who truly understands customer service.
You might be better served skipping this board and going straight to the source for your info.
