Does any of you have first hand experience of this focuser? Is it any improvement over stock one (e.g in holding position with heavy load)?

Thank you in advance,


Hi Adam
Had one on a ED100 a while back and took it apart giving it a re-grease and anything i could improve i did but still never felt right slipping under heavy loads , Should have spent the extra on the linear bearing version at the time a far more substantial focuser and great value for the money.
