    I’m in the process of REALLY trimming the fat on my setup. I have used the manfrotto mvh500ah head a lot but it’s heavy. I owned a Manfrotto befree for a short time but it wasn’t all that smooth. I may deal with it though.

    I’m running a G40 and a pretty lightweight monitor.

    What are some good options? I pack a stand and sticks 95% of the time. I need a lighter setup than I’ve been using even if I sacrifice some quality

    I went from the 500AH to the BeFree head awhile back and glad I did.. Mine is smooth as butter on a 4th arrow stiff arm.. Granted I don't run a monitor.. G30 with Rode videomic...
