099b options?
« on: October 02, 2016, 12:14:28 PM »
Does anyone know of a pole that will go shorter than a 99b but still extend 7 feet(ish)? Thanks.

There's one drawback with these arms though: The spigot at the bottom end of the extension is made out of Aluminium only.

Dunno if I'm grasping your question correctly, but both the Manfrotto 122B or Impact LS-3S will collapse to 21 inches or extend to about 33 inches.  The spigot ends of either one will fit securely into the bottom of the 099B, effectively giving you well over 7 feet if you need it.

Or is it that you're looking for a single extension pole that collapses to less than 3 feet but can extend to around 7 feet?

I hope you find it, but I suspect you'll have a tough time finding something off the shelf.

Way back, I had a custom extension built by APIC, length of 22" - 110", 5 sections.  Thirteen (!) years ago, I had a phone number for them:  http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=2455.msg17703#msg17703

No idea if they're still in business, but might be worth investigating.

I'm in the market for a 99b. Anyone know if there is a cheaper place than one of the usuals (B&H, etc) to pick one up?

They don't come up on eBay often, but you might put out an ISO on the YS here.  That's where I got mine.

I will say that after using it, I think the full asking price is reasonable for the quality you get.

Agreed. One on the way from B & H

Do yourself a favor and order these accessories now for the 099b.  You won't regret, this is the ultimate setup.

no doubt, but I went with the super clamp and 6"right angle extension and base. Btw, loving all of it!!!!!

Thanks! I really dig both of those! Since I sold my Lowel Half & Full Poles and bought a new 099B, I now need to pick up a BLACK Matthews Baby Stand Extension, so that I have a small extension to go at the top of my 10' Calumet MF6045 Stands :)

Don't forget that the Manfrotto 124 allows you to use the 099B as a super-long boom pole off a stand if needed.  I just picked one of these up, and the 25mm opening holds the bottom tube of the 099B securely.

I did the franken mod of Lowel Half Pole and UN-55 stand...nice compact pole-8ft of extension.

I've been thinking about this for a while...the marriage of a Lowel half pole and UN-55 stand to create a 8ft pole that collapses down to a small pole. BH had a demo UN-55 on sale so I took a  chance...



Basically remove the top section of the Half pole and the second section of the UN-55...and marry them. Nice small footprint.



I have to say...I'm very impressed with the UN-55 stand. It would do just about everything I want with one set of actives...maybe even two sets. It is a good foot taller than my Manfrotto 501b and much steadier...albeit noticeably heavier.
