Katana 2 Gimbal

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Katana 2 Gimbal

Asking Price
575.00 USD

Item Location
Los Angeles, CA (United States)

Item Description
I am grudgingly putting my Katana 2 gimbal up for sale.
Sad to see it go and I will probably regret it but it is not getting much use these days.
My lenses are smaller so I have been using its little brother the Tomahawk seen in the picture below more regularly and do not take out the Katana as much.

Price is $575 including shipping to US addresses.

This is a solid, silky smooth gimbal that will support the largest lens you can mount on it.
Condition is excellent with the only nick on the one flat screw plug that covers the opening to swap the pan handle.
(My screwdriver was not large enough for the job and it slipped.
I gave up since I was just going to test it for kicks and like where it is anyway.)

I will include the PX8 8 inch Arca Swiss type plate seen on the Bigma in the pictures.
Only the Katana gimbal and PX8 plate are being sold, the tripods, camera and lens shown are not for sale.

For more info see Katana Gimbal Head

Hey Amy are you out there? - It sure would be a nice gesture if you were to take this off Larry's hands and send up to me in the frozen north
Good luck with your sale Larry very nice looking rig - I drooled a little bit

Right? This would definitely handle that FA*600 she's looking at

I would so love to buy this (to go with my mini Back Dragon Pentax 500mm) but the 'banker' says no.

yes I did drool over the 600 but in the end I told myself all I would gain would be 100mm and my pocketbook would be depleted


I will vouch though that this is an awesome gimbal as well as an awesome seller...Buy it you won't be disappointed!!!
