Three new rigs from Tiffen

There are basically three new models, with the usual options. The Flyer is designed for weight loads from 4 to 15 Lbs, and lists for $6,495.00USD. The Clipper is rated for 15-26Lbs and lists for $32,500.00 and the Vector will handle weights from 20 to 45 Lbs and lists for $44,950.00. My understanding, from my discussion with Frank yesterday, is that the Flyer is like a Mini on steroids, the Clipper is like a cross between the ProVid and the Ultra, and that the Vector is going to challenge the Ultra. Challenge, not beat. It looks to me like Garrett and the boys at Tiffen have been busy in the back room. The prices look good too.
Disclaimer: This is just my opinion from a 1/2 hour conversation with Frank and the PDFs from the Steadicam site.

Does Tiffen think this is their top feature so they will only put it on their top rig?
Very disappointing in my opinion.
But both the Clipper and the Vector are only 2.75 iches wide. I think that makes them thinnest rigs out there.
