"Nikon 500mm Replacement Foot"

Hi all,

I have received the all clear signal to get the 500mm VR lens. Now I need to order a replacement foot. Does anyone have any insight to the RRS vs. Kirk products? Seems to me I read some time ago that one or the other was a little short for proper balance and they needed to mount to a gimbal or sidekick with some of the foot hanging out of the clamp.

Are these replacement feet the same length? I have all RRS camera plates and lens replacement feet just because I started out that way. Currently using Wimberley screw type clamps on everything.

Thanks in advance,
Don
