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.

Anyone use the 9.Solutions double joint arm? Thinking that with an extension pole and super clamp would be a nice combo.

A few questions about using a Matthews baby extension:
1. Anybody ever thread the 5/8" stud?
2. Guessing not, so looking at: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/824403-REG/Impact_ca_102_Rapid_Baby_to_3_8.html  plus a 3/8" x 5/8" adapter
3. What do folks use to mount the extension on a super clamp?

Thanks!

2. I haven't used that one but I do use the Manfrotto version. Make sure the top of the adapter fits your mic mount. I use a 1/4" top screw with a Ryvote low profile base.
3. You'll need a double sided spigot like this one:

I may  be clamping to a ~6" round structural pole in the near-ish future.  Anyone have a recommendation? I have a super clamp and 196 arm and run actives on a shapeways bar, so weight is not really a concern.

I use a large clutch style bar clamp (for woodworking) to clamp to a 8" square pole at a venue in our area. Here is a snap of it: (I think mine is the 12" version)

fer instance, I'm no Home Depot fan But this is the first image which popped up

Been known to do that on flat surfaces as well, RS. Not so sure how much confidence I'd have on a round surface. I'd have to do some experimenting 1st...
