    But now....

    I just had an Easyrig 3 600N failure, three days ago. It was a production own Easyrig, in excellent condition.
    We were using a Easyrig + Serene + Movi pro with a stripped down Gemini.
    The column literally broke in half during recording at the junction. It was a simple walking move with zero difficulties.

    I don't trust the Proaim on the cords in the long terms, but it is still ok nevertheless especially if you change it.

    I've owned an Easyrig 2.5 for years myself, and a Proaim Flowline with a Placid for the last two years.
    Seriously, they are both fine for owners. I wouldn't rent the Proaim though, just to be safe with the cords.

    I actually find the Flowline vest more confortable than my 2.5 (well it's easy to be fair) but as confortable as the 3, maybe even more padded now that I think about it.
    Merci Bérenger.
    Great to read all those different feedback here.

    It seems like Easyrig and Proaim are the two brands that most people use. I wish the Easyrig Minimax went up to 20 pounds with their weight limit. There is such a massive price jump from the Easyrig Minimax to their next level.

    Flycam Flowline: $1000 (9-27 pounds)
    Easyrig Minimax: $1250 (4.4-15.4 pounds)
    Easyrig Vario 5: $3500 (11-38 pounds)

    Part of me feels that if the Easyrig Minimax went up to 20 pounds, then a lot less people would buy the knockoff. Or maybe offer another model in between the two for $1800?
