Nah the other was a carbon fibre Greg. The Ali tube is ok but cools rapidly and requires focus after each sub for the first hour.

Mark if the RC16 is a truss which I am told it will be. Then it might not be a problem. The new truss design looks good and very light, so the moment arm might not be such a problem. That said I don't know if the EQ8 could really guide with that size scope on it. My gut feel is maybe.
