Why would they care if they make the same profit? I can understand the emotions but from a business standpoint it would be a bonehead decision to turn you away.

What will this rough surface do to the smooth surfaces of your ball head over time? If the coating is soft, it will just wear smooth in a short time. If it is too hard, it will chew up your clamping jaws.

Then what does it come in contact with? If it contacts nothing, it is an exercise in expensive uselessness.

I think the comment about marketing heaven said it best.

quote:
" This new coating makes carrying your long lens by our lens foot with this coating safer and more securable"
and
"not allowing the lens foot to slip in your hands even if they are wet"


maybe it is applied to the entire piece.

My RRS feet fit tight now, I don't think I'd want anything sprayed on them.

The original Canon foot has a padded surface for carrying the lens in the hand. Kirk will do the same thing and apply the coating to the top of the foot where you hand will fall. This would not interfere with the Arca clamp or or grooves. I like the idea.

I think there are a couple of options out there for folks who would want to add a grippy texture to any lens foot (or piece of anodized aluminum). I am sure Kirk has created some quick masking tooling to make the install of their spray-on-bedliner a bit better than a shade-tree sorta job, but there are lots of good grip material options available.

Agrip is the old-school firearms grip material. They die cut it for various pistols, but they also sell it in sheet form:
