the monopod fix
I am happy to give this update that many of you have been waiting for! The monopod reinforcement parts have arrived, which means I can finally get out those last orders that many of you have been waiting so patiently for.
The part that I designed is an aluminum 'collar' which secures to the bottom of the monopod. It fixes the issue of the monopod's bottom screw coming loose, and even the occurrences of the monopod's platic base plate cracking. Because of the wider base and solidity it also increases the overall stability of the monopod and helps it attach more securely to the base of the Revolve Dolly.
The collar has a center hole that threads directly onto the monopod's bottom screw, and 4 set screws which tighten onto the very bottom of the monopod tube structure just above the plastic base plate.
As you can see in the comparison above, the bottom mounting point becomes much more robust once the collar is installed.
I am very happy with the way this reinforcing collar functions. I think it looks pretty good too!
At the beginning of next week, I will begin shipping the remainder of the international orders who opted to wait for this part to arrive before their order went out. I want to thank you all for your outstanding patience! If you have any last minute address changes, please let me know ASAP!
For those of you who already received your orders with monopods and are just waiting for the reinforcement part- I will ship the part out to you as soon as possible. Many of you have already contacted me letting me know you would like the part, so if there is anyone else who needs it please let me know and I will get it to you.
Thank you again for your amazing support and patience! I have been getting great feedback from you guys and have already seen some pretty cool footage made with the Revolve. I hope to continue seeing your awesome results, so please continue to share!
