These guy will be able to advise you on the kit you need to buy. The problem is the boom. It's really hard to get decent performance from a boom on the cheap. If you have issues there, PM me and I'll help you out.

it's really sharp, but the angle just leaves me feeling uneasy. The flare doesn't really line up with shadows either.

I recently got some manfrotto f1000s for a rig im making, I gotta ask how do you dependably remove these cups? I quite simply cannot get them off without a TON of effort. and its frankly more effort I want to put in then if im out at a shoot..

there is a tab on the side that you have to pull up with your thumb after you release the pressure (pull the plunger out just enough to let air in the cup).

ok so you gotta pull the blue pump button 1st? the directions were not clear they were just saying (or I was grasping) just try and push that flimsy black tab up...which is a nightmare.

you could use a pull-cable on both of them and hook the ends together so they pull at the same speed.

Just pull one and drive the other, not that hard, and you always want one sharper than the other one anyway, so it works well.

for transportation I came across this and love it, its a plano double sniper case. air tight, water tight, and the foam holds everything in place. Best is that is has wheels so once out of the car I dont have to carry it to a location. Plano factory is a hour from my house and they have tons of cases half price so I picked this up. I also use PVC caps as of this year now too because the aluminum is starting to get galled up.
