Hi Matteo,

I guess you're talking about the G-50? The same thing happened to me (my arm didn't fall from the stand either, luckily). I told Robin about it and he said he had some spares lying around. Never got round to getting one here, though. I hang my arm on the side studs of my docking bracket (MK-V) in the opening next the arm post. I don't see any harm in that, and it's not likely to come apart there. (Anyone think it could hurt?) Besides, if already two of these little cables broke, I'm not getting an new one, I don't think I'll ever again hang my arm from them again...

Good luck!

Sven

Hi Sven

Yes, I was meaning that little piece of metal cord from the G50... Thanks for replying and sharing your experience.
Well, I think I'll leave it docked inside the bag. Don't want to risk

Matteo,
Mine broke as well. I think I was holding it at the time so no damage. We are all amazingly lucky! Anyway, this was a couple of years ago and Kyle Young (when he was still at Tiffen) gave me a few new ones. He said they changed the design. I have not had a problem since, and I check it every now and then. It still looks good.

Thanks Robin, if the design has changed I'll have another look at it and reconsider...
