Thinking of adding RRS's Long Lens Support Package on the larger glass, looking for feedback from those with real world experience.

I'd use it on the 400VR and possibly(hopefully) in the future with the 600VR. Might rent the 800 on occasion. Really, does it help?

Would be used with the WH 200 on a Gitzo 5541 if that makes a difference.

Another question, my best shooting buddy replaced the lower arm/clamp assembly on his Wimberley with the RRS PG-CC, saves a lot of knob twisting when mounting a lens. I've tried it a couple of times, seems like a nice upgrade. Haven't worked with it enough to thoroughly evaluate impact on IQ but it's definitely an improvement in setup. Again, anybody with any experience?

TIA for the feedback,
Bill

P.S. Is there any plan to upgrade forum software to make it simple to add a link? I mean, really, we're 12 years into the 21st century, why do I need to consult an HTML reference to insert a link? Sheesh...
