Wondered if anyone was making these available for the CGEM mount...if you're adding 34 pounds of counterweights as I'll be using...the standard toe saver seems far too puny.

Actually just found this and they will be producing a CGEM counterweight shaft by the end of the month. Their webpage is: www.criterionmachine.com
This is exactly what I've been looking for.
