Hello everyone.
At this moment im trying to choose right arms for my configuration : Nikon D700 in sealux housing + two Inon Z240 strobes. Was send letter to Ultralight but they answered what I need to weight my system underwater and after that they can halp me to choose right arms. But at this moment I have no chance to weight it :lol:
May be somebody use the same configuration ? What kind of arms you are using ?
thanks for help

I use Stix arms. Floats are interchangable.

I use i-Das arms. Generally less expensive, but the same as other Ultralight arm segments. The Stix floats fit them too if needed.

Jak what combo of arm lengths and joints would work best, I'm just looking into all this for the first time now. I'll be shooting in the PNW so I figure the closer the light can get, probably the better.

For wide angle shooting, a good compromise for length and portability would be 8" arm sections, 2 on either side. Stix Large floats are available for both ULCS and TLC arms.
