Q: What is our innovation and why is it better?
A: SMOOTH Ball Bearing Movements
The horizontal arm and vertical carriage glide effortlessly on 24 calibrated metal ball bearings.  Smooth all ball bearing movements are beneficial when shooting with high resolution cameras and camera backs.
Other stands, that don't use ball bearings have too much play and don't provide smooth movements.
