Throwing money at skill problems rarely fixes the problem...if your buoyancy is the issue, a new BCD probably wont make a bit of difference.

In Topic: Best solution for a balanced macro rig

First, thanks for the compliment, I appreciate it.

 

Okay, personally, I think having two arms on each side is a huge advantage vs one like in your image-- especially shooting wide angle.  For Socorro I used even longer arms than the image above, usually keeping the strobes wide, behind the port, and facing out a bit. 

 

For macro the above arms work fine. Having two on each side allowed me to put the strobes anywhere I wanted them. FWIW the arms pictured above are 9" and 7" in length.  Adding one more arm and clamp per side of your rig wouldn't cost much and, I think anyway, would help you.

 

Best,

I haven't had any issues with the floats being in the way of putting the strobes where I want them. Just put them on so that the fat sides of the blocks face away from the other arm. The standard clamps are long enough that the arms can be nearly side by side.

Yes, you must remove the rubber ring.
