no matter, brian - the 042 is exactly what i needed; sure, a round end piece (instead of the hex bolt) would have been ideal, but the 042 will suit my needs just fine...

This is another great clamp that I didn't see listed in this thread, it's a bit on the bulky side but very secure and can clamp to just about anything.  Link to a excellent video demonstration of it.

Here is a quick photo of the clamp used on a beam without the extendellini.


This is a photo with one extendellini that helps demonstrate the strength of these clamps.

BEST clamp EVER!! It is 100% my go to clamp. The width it can open alone kicks Superclamp ass, but the shape and config of the jaws make it a no brainer. This thing will clamp just about anywhere you need.

been using this thing for a while now. the extension piece is nice, and can come in handy for those uber-wide beams. the other piece that compliments this setup, big time, is the magic finger, which adds stability with no slippage. I attach my manfrotto 99b pole to it at all sorts of angles. you need to use a cotter pin with it to keep the magic finger from sliding, but that is easy enough, and the holes are already there.

glad to see others finally jumping on the bandwagon.

I'll also add the "Mini Cardellini Microphone Clamp with 3/8" Thread" to the list.  It's excellent for clamping to a stand and Rycote INV shock mounts will thread right on, no adapters necessary.

A balcony rail setup with modded AKG MK90/3 active cable, CK91 (cardiod's) in ORTF configuration mounted on
AKG H98 Holders on Vark Bar, Rycote INV Shock Mount, Manfrotto Articulated Arm and Matthellini Clamp.
To connect the Articulated Arm I used a Manfrotto MA158 as pictured, which is linked here for purchase

how do you connect a superclamp to the magic finger? would a 5/8" stud fit in the bottom of it? and then i could put my lowel full pole at any angle, correct?
