Quality Product that Works
12 September 2022 | Olly
This is my second ADM Counterweight that Iíve bought to put under the front of a dovetail to balance a rear-heavy scope. This one allows my EDGE HD 8Ē to be gripped by both saddle knobs on a GEM45 Mount. Like all ADM products it just oozes quality and works great. The only criticism I have is that itís possible to loosen the mounting screw when rotating the weight for fine balanceÖ Nevertheless itís an easy 5-Star rating.
ADM Counterweight - Dual 'V' and 'D'
20 July 2021 | Julian
I wanted something to replace a SW counter weight, I'd bolted to the end of a long vixen mount bar, and as I was also updating the mounting bar to an ADM, I wanted something that would give me a 'wider' range of adjustment etc. So I bought one of these to go with the mounting bar...
It's well made, and easily provides the adjustment I need to cater for a single ED80 to and ED80\ST80 or ED80\Canon cameras etc....
Having said all that it does have one BIG drawback, and that is that, there is NO locking mechanism on the weight, to ensure it keeps in place.
As it moves very freely on the 1/2" 13 TPI rod, I've had to turn to eBay to get some stainless steel hex nuts and penny washers, which will hopefully form an easily adjustable locking mechanism...
