I believe all Rowi clamps are discontinued. Welcome to the resale market.

What's an alternative you'd suggest?
The rowi 76 is solid as well.

adjustable compared to what? What parameters are you adjusting? Pardon me, but the Windtech is in use and has been used by many tapers in many situations and one anectdote about one breaking doesn't "scare" me from using it. A wee bit of caution after hearing that tale, however claiming the Windtech C clamp is not adjustable is bogus.
I own both the Windtech and the Manfrotto superclamp-IMO, the Windtech is much more versatile, ymmv of course.

All Rowi clamps have a built in ball head.

And its adjustable compared to the windtech.

the rowi has a ball head so you can adjust a lot more than a windtech.  with a windtech you can have the stud horizontal or vertical.  a rowi can do everything in between which comes in very handy when there are multiple sets of mics clamped etc.  also smaller and lighter.  since getting one my windtech is only used for the gakbrella.

pardon my not going back through the thread (doh!) - from  earlier parts of this thread, I was thinking the comparison was Windetch C vs manfrotto super clamp.
carry on :-)
