Thanks! How does the RSS L-plate quality wise do against the Markins?
THe L plates from RRS, IMO, pretty much set the standard for plates.
The only thing you should do though, is find a plate brand and stick with it if you ever will use a lever clamp. The lever clamps have to have a finer tolerance on the plate than do the screw clamps. That said, definitely do get a lever clamp.
In both plates and clamps, I think RRS is superior to RRS. You can order the Markins several ways - without a clamp and without loctite, even with a clamp and without loctite.
If you wanted the Markins clamp but would maybe be changing, I'd order it without loctite on the clamp. You can then use blue loctite (doesn't require heat) or even none at all - which is what I did.
