Tiffen is so overloaded with Flyer LE orders that every model currently being built has already been spoken for. Right now the list is about 40 days out. I have gigs lined up, one of which is the entire College Football season (starts late August).

Peter Abraham and I are both struggling to work something out, because we both understand how important it is for me to start the season on the first game. We both agreed that it would be a good idea to turn to the helpful community of operators for assistance.

I'd imagine this offer caters mostly to owners of multiple rigs, but please contact me if you or anyone you know can part with their rig for about a month. You will be helping out a fellow operator/soon-to-be owner in a huge way!

Dear Mike,

I know PRO rents rigs, as do several rental houses. As most operators own their own rig (and usually only one), it would be difficult to find a rig from another operator. You might try Janice Arthur in Chicago. I believe Janice owns 2 rigs, but don't quote me. Try Janice @ 312-961-4370.

Good luck, & push Tiffen to help you out.

Aparantly nobody thinks to look towards B&H for purchases like this, because they had one in stock. And now it's mine..

Crisis averted! B)
