    I Aron. Both Cameron Michael and Rob Rusher both own one. Cameron has used his with his MoVI XL for hood mount shots.

    I am a bit biased having created it but I have used it fairly regularly. Anything you are looking to know specifically?

    Hi Aron. We normally ship it with Red Medium Shock Modules, but if you want we can do black as a custom order. Price will be slightly higher. We recommend most XL users get both black and red however as most users end up with a combination of the two when using lighter camera packages with the XL.

    As for inversion you really want to use the inversion kit as it uses compression rather than extension. Extension is not nearly as effective for stabilization. When hood mounting (xl upside down/camera oriented right side up) and when using suspended with our inversion kit you are compressing the shock coils vs pulling them away which is bad. I know there is another company using extension on their car mount but if you ask anyone who has actually used it they will tell you its garbage.

    We are going to have some videos put together soon for inversion and a new arm product in the killshock line that is in prototype stage.

    Hi Aron. I have an extra one I can sell you. Basically its a fat compact inner tube that fits inside the killshock and you pump it up or deflate to get a perfect symmetrical iso-elasticity to the killshock. Sounds silly but works amazing.
