    Yes, you can. All my bricks for Ronin use are Slim profile. 70-90w. Its goof for up to 7kg.
    If you dont keep your center of gravity on Y axis you might have a problem tilting up and down, but so far my EPIC & ROnin have been a perfect match.

    The slim one yes, however i still manage to work with 180wh ones but whenever i dont tilt up and down much. It depends on your lens length/weight and your RFF setup.

    Look at be products offered by Cinemilled...they have extension arms that enable you to mount full size bricks on the back of the camera while still having full tilt control. Get the pan extension and the regular extension arms. You may also want to pickup their cheap ronin dovetail plate which gives you more fore/aft range.

    I don't own a ready rig...but something to remember is the RR doesn't limit vertical movement..it essentially just distributes the weight over your back. Whereas the Exhauss, Tilta Armorman, and Easy Rig with their full serene setup does help/alleviate some of it.
