The Smooth Shooter's Dyna-Elastic™ Support Arm incorporates more than twenty precision radial bearings within its machined T6
aluminum structure. The placement and implementation of these double-shielded bearings produce minimal friction and allow the Dyna-Elastic™ Support Arm to
pivot and boom very smoothly, and with virtually no noise.
Two high-carbon alloy, Extension
Springs are employed within the Support Arm's hardcoat anodized Exo-Skeletal Shell. Utilizing Class Three Levers, the energy of the Extension Springs acts upon internal Fulcrum Points, and provides
the Support Arm with its lifting power. The spring tension is field adjustable and allows for varying camera weights.
Our proprietary spring Inter-X-Change™ system makes the installation and removal of the springs quick and easy. The Support
Arm can be setup and used in either a One-Spring Mode, or a Two-Spring Mode. In the One-Spring Mode, the Support Arm can hold a total combined camera and hand-held stabilizer weight of 9 pounds.
In the Two-Spring Mode, the Support Arm can hold a total combined camera and hand-held stabilizer weight of 18 pounds.
A key design feature of the Support
Arm is that it incorporates our Light-Force™ technology. This literally means that only a "light" force or effort is required by the operator to hold the arm at any given position, or to boom the arm
up and down. It is this Light-Force™ feature that provides the operator with the optimum amount of camera buoyancy or float.
