When I got it in my hands and tried it, I noticed that even thightening at maximum, the handle was able to turn when force was applied.
That wasn't good at all. BUT after testing and figuring out what could be the problem I found the reasonn and a solution:
REASON: The 15mm hole is not perfectly circular (it has some "stripes" inside) AND the screws had some metalic friction when tightening, they're not smooth enough.
SOLUTION - Very simple:
1- Unscrew all the thumbscrews and apply a drop of Oil for mechanics/machines (DO NOT USE OIL FOR FOOD!)
2- Then screw in again all the way. Unscrew and screw a couple of times to make sure the mechanic oil reached all the screwing patch
After that, you can thighten the screws and apply LOT of torque force. The handles will be LOT MORE resistant!
Hope this helps!
This being said, it does its job. If you need rods without spending an arm and a leg, this should be perfect for you.
I honestly had to use pliers to tighten everything to the point I was confident in using the handles.
I may purchase other handles, but in the mean time I have removed 1 handle, attached it directly to my rods, and tightened it in place. I use my follow focus for primary support in the other hand.
But the screws never tighten enough, or are strong enough to prevent the handles from rotating. Over time my handles end up pointing out in the direction I'm shooting. Not a huge deal, I just pull them back in, but kind of annoying.
Still, I don't have $200+ to spend on a really nice rig.
These have got the job done fine on six 8 hour shoots out in the woods.
