It has come to our attention that another supplier of tripod heads have been accusing us of copying their products and saying not very nice things about us. In the interests of decency and fair play we would like to put the record straight.
We have faced the threat of a lawsuit about our patent and our rights, which was clearly stated on their Facebook site, but this was rejected by the court in favour our inventor. We would like to assure all of our customers that we will always act in a professional manner and will never resort to saying anything negative about competitive products.
Our designer was instrumental in developing their product, he is still very proud of what he did as it’s a very good product. Then he left the company for many reasons that we will not state here and formed Flexline. For all of the Flexline heads and accessories, he has his own patent for the new features and every right to sell and distribute it. Our users agree as we have sold out the first production run of the heads, hence the reason we have been quiet for the past few months.
Now we have the second production run and already we are receiving many positive comments from happy users. Our new features deliver what so many photographers have been asking for.
We will continue to deliver new and innovative solutions to give photographers the best stability that we believe is currently available anywhere. That is course for our customers to decide as there is more than enough room in the market for everyone and at the end of the day it’s all down to user choice.
Here's what our patented spring-counterbalanced double ball heads will do for you:
WEIGHTLESS - We chose the polyurethane counterbalance spring because it is capable of storing greater elastic energy in a given volume than steel springs. And it is the most durable artificial rubber on Earth, we were not able to break it, even with the most exhaustive testing.
NO IMAGE CREEP - No more locking up your tripod head and having your precious composition vanish out of the frame. Our patented technology ensures no more image creep as we value your compositions.
Here’s the news on our latest Products, Accessories and all things Flexline!
Here at FlexLine we always try to respond to photographers to give them what they need, it's the company ethos. So when one of our photographers on assignment asked to mount two camera systems onto one Flexline Pro head we came up with the Twin Shooter.
It's a special mounting plate that fits directly onto the FlexLine head and allows you to mount two long lens based systems as shown. So you can shoot with a 600mm lens and a converter and right next to it have a 100-400mm for a wider shot. Mounted together, with all the benefits of the FlexLine heads, it will revolutionise your photography.
Our FlexLine heads are designed to make your long lenses weightless, but we recognise there are times when you need to carry your lens on your shoulder when moving location and they are far from weightless! So to make carrying your long lens easier we have integrated this cool padded shoulder strap with our BigFoot range of replacement long lens feet. We call it the BigFoot Sling. It clicks neatly into each end of the BigFoot, you don’t need any adaptors or anything, it’s just click-click and off you go! The Big Foot Sling is better than competitive products as supports the lens in TWO places, keeping it stable whilst walking and reducing the load on your shoulder.
