Swarovski Balance Rail

From: Ben from Ohio
Rating: 5 of 5

This thing is awesome. It does add some weight to the overall set up, but it is a HUGE improvement over the old swarovski balance plate. The best thing about it is how easy it is to switch to a different balance point without having to take off the plate and re-screw anything. You just flip the lever on the side, slide it smoothly into place and then flick it back into locked position. Also an improvement is the added space on the underside to fit your thumb under onto the bottom of the scope focus wheel, the old plate got in the way a little. Also cool that you can slide it off the bottom rail/plate (by first depressing the green safety button catch) and use it on your table, car roof, etc, as a stable base. Very handy, and definitely provides a more balanced and less shaky image when digiscoping. Its not as expensive as I would expect from Swarovski, but still arguably overpriced, worth it though, as there is nothing as well designed on the market.
