    I was thinking of two Rex segments but it would be too expensive to try lol. I'm sure I will just stick with it in stock form for now. It worked great last year

    So it seems like the easiest way to use the extension is to have it locked up against the tree like the picture above. This allows you to place the base further away from you. On smaller to mid sized trees, you can pretty much move the camera to the opposite side of the tree and cover all your shot angles. That being said, without the extension arm, you can still reach most of those angles. The extension arm starts to give an advantage on larger trees when the standard two arm segments don't have enough reach to see on the opposite side of the tree.

    Red I shot this at 8pm in New York. Light was getting low in tree. I may have been better zooming out a bit but I was in a rush. The bad news is that I could not zoom in on the video app on the phone for the picture in a picture

    Thanks for doing that. The main frame was pretty good for getting that late, definitely acceptable.

    Bump. Is this still the camera arm of choice? You guys would recommend the carbon arm kit?

    I have a carbon arm, stiff arm, and extension. The stiff arm is a little better if you have a heavier camera setup, otherwise the carbon works well.

    Ok, thanks! Just was doing some browsing and it looks like I'm not going to find one in the same weight range at a similar price so I'll probably try it out also.

    I'm not liking that it is sold separately. But it does seem like the cats meow.

    Bump. I swapped out the tool and went with adjustable loops to setup better around limbs.

    You definitely need stealth strips and Camo Form.
