It is off center because of the battery. The is no way to put the socket centered and keep it compact. That is also why they not longer have the little compartment for the remote trigger like they did for the bg2: no space.

a simple question

Is this quick release compatible to arcade Swiss mounts? I want to use this on arcatech gv2.

Watchman, to which plate are you referring? The Kirk is a non issue since they don't make it anymore. As for the Mestos, they are Arc Swiss type mounts, so yes. And again thanks to NotaxPen for the heads up. I would have never found the Mestos plate if not for him and I am every bit as happy with it as my RRS. I doubt the Kirk would have been any better.

On the 20th of September, I went ahead and bought my Mestos plate off ebay. As of today I have not yet received it. How long did it took for it to arrive to Texas?

Mine just shipped from Korea according to an email from ebay. Does that mean that I have to wait another 3 weeks for it to arrive?

Both my plates took two days to ship out and a little under 2 weeks to arrive so it varies. You just have to wait.
