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...
Yes, the roundness of the 6" pole is my concern re this wood clamp. However, I did not see any replies to beegar so I figured to at least chime in with a photo/link to see if that heads them in the right direction.  :laugh:

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.

A matthelini is probably perfect for that.

Or just a nylon cinch strap or two.

I'd echo vanark's suggestion. I have a small wooden block ~3"x8" to which I've added a 1/4" bolt. The block can be strapped or gaffer taped to a pole, and then a tripod head or 5/8" stud (or whatever) can be attached attached via the bolt. Last time I used it was for a 4+ hour time lapse documentation of a bicycle race; no space to safely use a tripod so I mounted the camera to a light pole.

Hey, RS. Just wanted to tip you to this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/546500-REG/Manfrotto_119_119_Short_16mm_Adapter.html

1/4"-20 bolt and 1/4"-20 nut to attach to the opposite side of the bar of the clamp to act as a shim and the proper rapid adapter.

Seems like less points of failure and a bit more stream-lined. YMMV...

Please explain. To strap a stand to the pole (legs closed)?

Totally missed that part. Makes perfect sense. I suppose one of those thick, closed cell kneeling pads for home or garden to help conform to the contour of a round pole couldn't hurt either...

Been taping for 25+ years and I still learn something new, especially in this thread... Thanks,and good job ladies and gents!

Funny we got the rapid adapter in your right hand photo after we bought a Matthews extension arm to use with the SUperclamp/articulated arm.
I may pick up one of those adapter spigots in the first link.    Thanks!

How do you guys attach extension poles to the windtech clamp? Do I need a stud converter? It looks like it may be a 3/8" stud.

I use a Manfrotto (119) female spigot, with a flat edge, to attach an extension pole to a clamp. You may need an additional adapter to go from the clamp’s 5/8” thread to the spigot.

I'm not sure I would even try that. An 099B is going to be a fair bit of force on that small clamp. What are you clamping  to? Vertical or horizontal? What other clamps do you have in your arsenal?
