At the end of this week I'll drive up to Amsterdam to pick up my new Archer... Chris Fawcett' one.

I'm very happy and I want to share my happiness with all of you. Soon pics will arrive. And a workshop too.

Thanks my friends... She IS really really beautiiful... flies like an angel... here's 2 pics while practicing... GREAT FUN



p.s. I won't make comparison between this rig and my previous almost hand made one... there's no point... they are simply 2 different objects... it's not day and night, it's more, it's like winternight and summerday. No words to express it better. Just an advice to the newbies like me... if and when it's possible go for branded equipment for one main concern, your safety and your good health, if there's no adjustment for arm to vest link then don't even consider it, it's crap... IT'S FOUNDAMENTAL THE STEADICAM SOCKET BLOCK WITH YOUR THREADS (fore and aft and side to side)! TRUST ME
