There's a lot of these for sale from a lot of different eBay sellers. They look more or less the same offering.

Has anyone any experience with one ?

I bought one from India several years ago. Not the best, but for the few times I used it it was good enough. If you are going to shoot long teles really often buy the pricey ones. There is no need for a Lamborghini to go to the grocery store.

I have considered it, but for me it is more of a GAS thing than a need.

They do need to be modded as can be seen here:



Check out the mods he does.

Mine works fine. A bit stiff but if I need to check it for air travel I don't worry about an expensive gimbal.

In my opinion, of the generic cheaper units the SevenOaks branded is best of the bunch.
On eBay if you see a listing for it, contact the seller and confirm it's an actual SevenOaks, and not just a photo of such.

Mine is not really usable as sold, still need to make a modification on the "bearing".
