So, how much? I just ordered one, along with a ZS 80IIED. I am hoping it will handle the FLT110. (and 135 when they hit the market!)

Luke, don't worry! No problem with your set-up!!
The scope in the pic is NOT a WO... You cannot see the iron cast part? ;) It's a 150mm from a well known Chinese maker...
It was the biggest scope the dealer we took the photo at had access to for our small test...
We loaded the EAZY-T with three scopes, diagonals and UWAN eyepieces (including the 28mm!). After balancing, the mount had no problem at all! I am positive we could have loaded another few pounds on it without any trouble... Obviously, the more you load the more important it gets to have a very stable tripod and very good balancing, but the mechanics and smoothness of the EZT Head had no problems at all.

That is very impressive!

The only "problem" I see is that having 3 times as many scopes in one place probably produces 3 times as many clouds! Hehehe...
