I found these poles and I'm wondering why they couldn't be used as spreader bars for the ridgerunner. They have the screw off top with the camera mount bolt.
The problem is, they are anti shock and I don't believe they can be locked out. Does anyone know why Brandon doesn't recommend anti shock poles to be used? Is it a strength issue or is it because of the play in the system. If it's the play, I really don't see why that would be an issue. Once it compresses it can't go any farther.
These are a killer deal. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...king_Pole.html
