The loose end seemed to have a shorter inside stem. When pressure is applied to the stem via the wedge actuated by the knob, the stem moves up towards the ball joint. However, the loose side seems is too short and is easily pushed away by the wedge. It then sticks out slight to then have little surface area and effectively becoming a gouge. Yes...it would have been nice if both ends worked. I inserted a small ball bearing in the short end with some success.
Update: took it apart and added shims to rods to optimize the length of the to contact wedges correctly and fully. I can now apply a high amount of pressure to the knob and get them super tight for a heavy monitor and battery or for fun I put a 35mm camera up on the arm above the rig as a joke. The modified arm held it up with no problems. So if anyone wants to tinker/fix... a snap ring holds the ball joint in place. Once you remove the ring you lift out the ball cup and slip the shim on top of the stem. No more than about 5mm wide by 2-4mm thick, but test fit to be sure your version fits and slides easily.
My first time using this, I arranged the arm how I needed it and turned the tensioning knob to have it hold in place. But the base end socket - the one holding up the entire arm, that is - immediately failed to engage, it was completely loose. Worse, I discovered that shreds of metal were collecting below the ball and socket, more and more with each movement. See attached a photo of this, keeping in mind I had brushed it clean a few times already before taking the photo. Whether it was made wrong, or just the act of tightening the knob so that the rest of the arm would hold in the position I wanted caused this I can't say. Further, the swivel joints I mentioned did not show any increase of joint tension regardless of use of the knob. What that means in practice is that you can't hold the specific orientation of the arm because it turns and allows to swing down whatever is attached. It makes it really useless given that its whole purpose is to hold things up in a specific position.
In case it wasn't clear, don't buy this. It's completely useless for its task, even if it manages to not shed bits of metal all over everywhere the first time you use it.
First, the center adjustment knob doesn't ever feel secure. I have to grind it down to make sure it doesn't go anywhere. It;s not a good feeling with a $1300 piece of hardware dangling on the end.
Second, The two ends (camera mount and standard screw mount) are connected to the arm through a ball joint. It seems like a great idea because you can move it around all sorts of angles. Wrong. The joints are too loose so whatever is attached always sags down. All of the configurations in their pictures are physically impossible to recreate.
Third, The metal is decent but I am just waiting for this thing to fall apart one day. I hope I buy something better beforehand.
