I have a shoot next weekend on a Jib and we are using a Preston FIZ wireless unit. The Preston to RED cable is on backorder for several months. BUT...several of these have shipped.
I need to rent the cable Dec 7-9...If you have this cable or know of one please contact me. I will pay for the full cost of the cable if you will rent it to me for the 3 days.

She is traveling right now, should arrive home by Tuesday.
After flying over 7600 miles, half way around the world a Preston cable should arrive just in time for my shoot.
Just wanted to thank everyone for all their advice, phone numbers and attempts at finding me the correct cable. Its amazing how small the world really is, especially with a forum like REDUSER at your disposal.
Thanks to Scott at Rocket Rentals and Wes in New Zealand I have a cable currently in flight on its long journey to Louisiana.

Pretty amazing how small the world is!!
Still cant believe Fedex can deliver a package 7500 miles in one day, yet the screw up a delivery less than 500 miles away.
BTW- Your work is awesome, the cables look great!!
