    which Arca plate for Alpa camera on Cube?

    Just got my cube, and wondering which Arca Swiss plate people have found best to fit onto the slim Alpa bodies (Max, STC, TC?) The included one is ok, but very de-centered, when you only use the one thread hole.
    something from RRS perhaps?

    thanks

    I use the RRS MPR-73 bar. It bolts directly to an ALPA, and has a shoulder plate that prevents rotation. MPR-73 3/8ths: 73mm MPR 3/8th threaded - MPR-73-3/8ths There's also this shorter option: http://reallyrightstuff.com/Items.as...a12SWH&key=cat

    When we were at RRS a couple of weeks ago, Graham Welland found an alternative plate, but I don't recall which it was. Perhaps he'll reply as well.

    I'd definitely go for a plate with a lip/shoulder. I had an Arca plate on my Max: it drives you cracy if the plate starts twisting. I use the MPR-73 too.
