Quote:I have a G11 and I think it would handle it with ease. Depends on what you add obviously but I think no problems with a G11.
Quote:I'd feel pretty good about trying it on a G-11 - certainly more likely to please than the Atlas. The only firm data point I can offer is that an NJP does it very well!

Quote: Takahashi rates their mounts conservatively as do most Japanese manufacturers.
Quote:Ok, my question about the Atlas carrying the 10" RC has generated several responses on both sides. What about the G-11? It's rated for 60 lbs and the 10" RC is 34 lbs without imaging gear. Any concerns with this combination, or still too under-mounted??
