Someone needs to update this thread. All of the pictures on the first page are gone. So much for the tutorial unless there already is a new updated page. :) I'd like to set one of these up.

Yeah, I missed it. 440 pages worth of stuff... That's a lot to look through. :)

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Can anyone in the UK tell me where i can get a suitable pole that will fit together in sections? I got one in Homebase, but its nowhere near as sturdy as i need and it was the biggest they had. Ive checked online aswell and am unable to find a suitable one.

That's the site I was gonna use, but once you get the tubes, how do you join them together? I send an email to that company, and they said they couldn't help me with that.

Mind catching me up on Ste's comments?

I hate my Lever Lock Magic Arm when Im working by myself. I would much prefer a Variable Friction one.


magic arm is tragic
i've replaced my internals 3 times already for 3 years. I can't complain since I got the magic arm for free. Bought it off ebay claimed to the guy it didnt work. He tried contacting the manufacture to help me get it repaired, he got lazy decided refund me the price and keep it. So after 3 times repairing only cost me 10 bucks each time it still keeps having lock issues. I bought the friction arm and use the magic locking arm as back up.

found this video to help fix minor problems. what happens to me is i actually crush the metal balls inside or the ring splits from constant use.

variable friction arm some guy made directions how to put it together.

I'm still trying to find a better alternative, I know ste how just uses a ball head now.

I was going to make a video of how I fix mine but mine is version before the one in the video. He has 3 balls and 3 groves, I only have 2 -_-...
Which is why mine keeps breaking I think.

Sorry, missed this until now.

Stephen is the only person I had heard call the Magic Arm the Tragic Arm lol, and I think it was because of the weight. I use the standard arm (143A), and have never had a problem in 3+ years, but it appears some have.

It is pretty heavy with my 4 section 16ft rig it flexes so I needed the tensioner, a lot of the time the cable is so tight because the magic arm is rocking the weight up and down.

I still think maybe he has version one and not sure if he has tried to fix his.
I'm giving the 244 varible friction a shot
