(http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=140567750024&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_1597wt_1146)i took a leap of faith a bought that one. I has no hard stops, but runs smoothly and feels proper made. It's part anodized aluminum and plastic (the marking plate). I has a square socket in the dial, so one could probably use a handle with it if so inclined.

The seller had good service, confirming sending address, offering other deals etc, but in a non intrusive manner.

It fits 15mm rails with 60mm center to center spread. They send along a rubber flexi ring, but I had already made an order from Shoot35 where I purchased two flexi rings (they just seem more finished, and they worked perfectly with the FF. Another reason I wanted the shoot35 was because they also work well with the Hocus Focus, which should be my next purchase.

Anyways, I can recommend that particular seller... Also, they send from the UK, so no need to worry about taxes and customs.

I ordered from Denmark. Paid for it the 19th (tuesday), they responded same day, and I think I had it the following monday. I figure if I had ordered it monday instead I might have had it friday, but I wasn't in a hurry so I was happy.
In contrast to the Kipon I ordered. The guy was friendly but failed to read my "value it at 29 dollars" and it took 2 weeks to arrive from China. Sitting at the post office at the moment because I need to pay customs.
The cheap China deals don't always go well...
