Any Recommended Arca Swiss plate for Q-K adapter?

After numerous recommendations I have picked up the genuine Q to K adapter primarily as a telephoto option for my Q7. I am looking for a good recommended Arca Swiss plate for the adapter, any recommendations?

Thanks.

Doug

It depends on what length lens you are using. You need one that can counter balance the weight of the lens therefore likely a 2". (50mm) would do, longer lenses likely have their own foot

Second the Fanotec recommendation. It has an integrated clamp and foot, you just need to select the most appropriate length for your telephoto application.

The Fanotec foot, it's not even a question.
