Neat. Did you get the Ayo standard? It is my understanding that the Ayo mount, from AOK, is a more robust design than the similar EZTouch.

Yeh,the AYO standard. The standard is the same as the original WO EZ Touch. I believe WO used to buy their original ones from AOK until they moved manufacture to Taiwan and reverse engineered them.

Hmm .. I once owned an earlier model EZTouch, the first year WO introduced them. It was very smooth but, I can't imagine using it with a load like the TEC-140. I was hoping that the AOK Ayo was a step up in stability/beefiness.

Well the TEC-140 is certainly at the limit for the standard AYO. With a counter weight it might be just OK.
There are in fact two bigger models for heavier loads.
The AYOnd and the AYOdigi are certainly up to the job.
Furthermore they just introduced the AYOmaster for the really big guns. D&G anyone?
