My setup with the 196 arm is complete but I am missing at least one piece to my extension pole setup. I taped a show last weekend and the only place to set up was behind the sound board - if I had the 099b, I could have clamped FOB and avoided the sound board social hour.

Anyone have an idea on how to connect the 484 ball head to the 099b extension? Is there a stud with female 1/4-20" and 5/8 top stud? I cannot seem to find one with a female end AND a stud on the opposite end.

Super clamp > stud > Manfrotto 484 ball head > ? > Manfrotto 099b > stud > Rapid Adapter > K&M bar

It looks like this may work:

Otherwise, maybe there's a better way to arrange the gear?

Replace the Manfrotto 484  whith the "Lite-Tite Swivel Umbrella Adapter" (026) or something similar. The 484 might not hold enough weight.

Thanks for the reply. This is certainly an option, but I am running 853s with Tensimounts (very lightweight), so I estimate that I'm at around 1/3 of the 484's stated max of ~8.75 pounds with the heaviest part of the setup being the 099b extension. I'm certainly open to grabbing a new attachment, but if what I have will work for now, I'd love to grab the umbrella attachment at a time when I get new, larger mics.

To follow up, I ended up buying the Manfrotto umbrella adapter and will be selling the ball head. Thanks for the recommendation.
