Used the super clamp+telescopic extension for the first time last night. The clamp could only latch on in a way that caused the pole to be at an angle. Is there any way to avoid this with a superclamp or would a c clamp be the way to get it up perpendicular to the ledge?

Superclamps typically come with a wedge insert that allows it to clamp flat to a table top. I always lose that insert and have to wing it.

A lot of people prefer a Matthelini type jaw clamp for flat surfaces.

This is what i would use and works great in that situation. Ive had the same issue, even with the wedge in the superclamp.

If you lose the rubber insert superclamps are good for round rails, use a flat C-clamp like a Rowi for tables and lips.

You can buy a 4 pack of the wedges if you lose one and need a replacement.

Thanks for the link, I was having trouble finding a clamp with an opening larger than 2”. That price is pretty steep though  :-\

Gear that enables you to set up in the ideal location is worth the expense, IMO.

I think I use the Manfrotto quick release more than any other clamp. Although I use superclamps a fair bit too, esp. on round rails.

Think i found one on ebay a ways back around 35. It really was worth it. I use it all the time.

I ended up going with 6” wide jaw impact brand Matthellini type clamp that I found used (open box) on Amazon for $35.

That's a good deal.

Can anyone share the link to the legs that can be attached to a Manfrotto 099b extension pole??  I can seem to find it searching B&H
