Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to say thanks to all the advice and guidance I have recieved so far. As I have gone deeper into research I have spotted a few other models apart from the Flyer. I was just wondering what the primary differences were. Also, does any one know where I can get a proper price guide for all rigs available in the UK?

Cheers,

Andrew

The Mini was replaced by the Flyer. Because of obvious reasons... The Arm... no comparison and other vast improvements.
The SK2 was a step down from the ProVid and had only a single action articulated arm.

Price guides... sorry. You have to do the leg work / Online research. Just make a list of the rigs available and contact all the manufacturers and resellers...


Good Luck,

Erwin

You won't regret it. it really is a wonderfull rig. I have had mine for about 3 month now and this thing keeps amazing me. Just keep in mind that you'll have to practice a lot before getting good result. But once you start getting it, the potential is amazing. Start exercising your back... :)

Shameless plug, but I may have a Flyer that needs a new home.
