What do you guys carry your booms in? I have the 20 ft. Rig pro and need a better transport method than the box it came with.

I got a big square of canvas, sewed some loops into it and then I roll them all up. Works really well.

Ski bags work best, you can pick up a cheap one for $49 if you look around.

Bat sh*t crazy...

Take a slightly mental 964 RS and race prep it, yessss.

This thing is epic, nut and bolt restoration, looks and sounds superb, but it will brake every bone in your body if you drive it to the shops to get milk!

Porsche 964 RSR – not much good for shopping but will kick ass on the race track.

Rig is a bastard child ali and carbon set up, 3 suckers for extra hold and a sail for a bit of extra stabilisation.

So...I'm shooting an Aston Martin Vanquish convertible next weekend, is it worth bringing the rig? I use a 5m Rig Pro, plus a D800 so it's a fairly heavy setup and a bit concerned about using the paintwork.

I don't understand the concern at all. I can show you every kind of car you can name rigged with Rig-Pro equipment with no issues at all.

- Make sure the areas where you plan to install the cups is waxed
- Make sure to get at least a 9 ft spread
- Select the right road (super smooth, small gradient)
- Bring at least 1 assistant
- If you're not using Woods cups, don't even attempt it

Easy as pie.

My concern is that the car belongs to the director of the biggest law firm in the state, and I don't have public liability insurance if things go wrong. :oops:

Well that and the last car I used the paint on left slight imprints in the paintwork. And while I'm sure they can be buffed out, the owner was still somewhat nervous after seeing them. (I am using your woods cups :-) )
