Hi

Yes im looking at some kind of stabaliser set up using a cable. Most of my rig stuff is around F/18-F/22, apart from the Night shot of the RS which was F/5

The main picture in the link I posted has a parts list :)

What difference would a 12" eye bolt vs the 8" eye bolt make?

Sounds good. But even if you don't, let me know if I can help you with anything.

I think the taller the bolt, the more leverage you'll have, but I have never seen a need for anything taller than 8" on a Rig-Pro boom. Maybe one of these other guys can chime in with their experience.

Neil?

OK and how long of a cable would I need for the 18ft boom?

I'd buy 25 feet, just to be safe, it's inexpensive. Then when you put it together you can get it down to exact size.

Ok because I know 20ft would still be too long.

Yes. You'll have to make one end, stretch it, leaving the turnbuckles adjusted almost all the way out, then make the other end. This leaves you room to tighten.

I think they're both fantastic really, not something you see every day.

Yes, I have tension-wires, and pull-cables in stock. PM me for details.
