About Jobu Design PRO2

The Jobu Design Pro2 Gimbal Head is a redesigned version of the popular Black Widow line of Gimbal heads from Jobu Design. The Pro2 is lighter and even stronger than its predecessor with a completely redesigned, 400% stiffer swing arm, which is CNC-machined out of solid aluminum.

As its strength was improved, the Pro2 was also given an integrated Arca-style quick-release clamp, which saved on weight compared to the previous version. But even while exacting 2 oz of overall weight savings, Jobu Design made no compromise on the head's ruggedness - among its tests, the manufacturer even took a hammer to this model, which suffered no ill effects from the thrashing.

The Pro2 is rated to support over 35 lbs - essentially, the longest telephoto lens you can find (800 mm plus) will be well-served by this silky-smooth Gimbal. Like the earlier version, the Pro2 Gimbal Head features a horizontal mounting element, which is much easier for installing the lens and serves to avoid the sheer stress on the lens collar that side-mounting introduces.

Jobu Design PRO2 Features

  • Redesigned from the Ground Up: For this updated Pro2 gimbal head, Jobu completely redesigned the swing arm and internal components to reduce weight and improve stiffness & overall strength
  • Ball Bearings: Full ball-bearing support in tilt axis for zero static or dynamic friction, resulting in 100% smooth movement
  • Arca-Type Quick-Release System: The Arca-Swiss-type quick-release base allows the head to be used with any of the many "Arca-Swiss-type" plates, available from Arca-Swiss, Foba, NPC, Novoflex and more
  • Horizontal Mount: The horizontal mount is CNC-machined for lightness, yet retains its high strength. A fully retained quick-turn knob allows infinite balance position adjustment and steadfast clamping
  • Horizontal Lockout Knob: The horizontal tilt motion can be locked out for complete safety, with a low-profile lockout switch (locks tilt movement for travel). This cannot break off and it's easily replaceable if ever necessary
  • Ergonomically Designed Knobs: Soft-touch rubberized knobs offer strong clamping and easy use with bare or gloved hands - especially when wet
  • Maintenance-Free Design: Requires no maintenance. Nylon bushings will not wear out and heavy-duty waterproof grease is used to create the silky-smooth operation
  • All-Weather Design: From the hard powder-coated support arm, to the stainless steel shafts, to the black anodized clamp, the finish will endure the worst a photographer can throw at it

Questions about this item:

Moshe M  can the swinging arm be replaced with plate?
Andrew R  I don't believe so. The arm does not look like it's designed to accommodate such a change.
