    Has anyone adapted the Buddipole mast adapter to a Speaker Tripod? Their adapter is threaded & 1/2 inch wide, and the typical speaker tripod is 1 3/8 - 1 1/2 inch.

    I think it will fit on the end of a Mr. Longarm?

    I'm just wondering how I can keep the versatee centered on the mast using an adapter of some sort? Not an offset adapter, but rather one that will keep it centered on mast...

    Just looking for ideas...

    Well the adapter I had ordered was actually for a buddistick, and not the versatee, lol.

    But I did just find out that the Versatee will actually accept ubolts and it ended up working perfectly on my camera tripod flipped upside down.

    I was hoping I wasn't going to have to purchase their $150 mast/tripod setup. The stuff is very nice, but phew!

    Thanks again Charles..

    Looks good to me. :)
    Looks great. :)

    Yeah I agree a $150 bucks is a bit of a stretch for what it is.
