Because the entire Elements line is completely modular and open to your creativity, your Recoil XT is just the beginning. You can add and subtract new parts and over time, having a completely different configuration to do just about anything.

  1. Seems well over priced for a basic rail mount and grips fitted onto a well known bargain basement shoulder support (which you can get on ebay for under $50), I happen to own and never use as its pretty uncomfortable and not practically for camera positioning – something this bundled package does not seem to improve on as opposed to some better (and vastly cheaper) DIY efforts on the forums.

  2. Yes, your right Mike. Some amateurs and pros really love these $24 supports – I know Gareth Edwards used one to shoot ‘Monsters’ with a prosumer camcorder – but the ergonomics on this kit is just off for a dslr rig – I would go for the far cheaper Jag Field Runner or Cavison support before this any day.
