    Does anyone have success with the Cinemilled or ProAim gimbal dock with the factory Movi Ring? I tried it and my TB50’s couldn’t fit on it. Just wondering if I’m missing something or I just need to move on and ditch the factory ring and get the cinemilled Pro Ring. Or does the old like M5/M10 dock work with it?

    The Cinemilled ring was kind of hard on the carbon fiber of my Movi Pro ring, and chewed it up a bit. Mainly cosmetic. I like the Cinemilled dock, but for many years, I just used a $6 garage hook from Lowes and sandwiched it in a gobo head, and it was an excellent dock!

    Drilled a 3/8" hole in the plate to accommodate the gobo head, which allows me to mount directly on a baby pin\c-stand. Held some heavy builds over the years, too, and the hooks are nice and soft.

    The TB-50's will always be a little in the way when coming on and off the dock, so you have to pull back straight, but they do work.

    The Pro-Aim dock is a very similar copy of the Cinemilled... basically a blatant rip-off.
