    Reblocking question / Looking for suggestions

    I just sent in the two SMQVs and they were $375 each for reblocking to 19, however they said the price was going to be jumping up to $425.
  2. Presently, I have a Lectro SRc A1 and two block 20 SMQVs as well as a block 25 SRb and two block 25 SMQVs. I’m sending in all the block 25s to have them reblocked, along with a superslot upgrade. I’m looking for suggestions on whether I should get them reblocked to 19 or 20. (I want to eventually put both receivers in an SL-6). If I reblock them to 20, I’ll basically have four block 20 wireless that I can switch in and out, but If reblock them to 19, all of them will function with the SRc, but only the block 19 SMQVs will function with the SRb. However, I could conceivably have more options for finding good frequencies(I also have some G3s acting as hops in the block 20 range). Obviously both will function, but are there any suggestions out there based on experience? Am I just being silly and should I just go block 20 all the way? This is in the Portland/Seattle area. Thanks for any suggestions!

    Orca OR-32 bag with SD 664 fitting issue

 I'd love to hear what you use to carry the 617 bag when not on a harness. Below is the handle I've been using (it's a PortaBrace Z9-UA-LH), and I've seen others using similar handles on this bag. However, i'm a little worried that the handle is going to hit against the antennae of the SL-6 I'd like to eventually put above the 688.

    Orca OR-32 bag with SD 664 fitting issue

    I've been using a Sachtler 617 and heavy duty harness with my 664 for the last year or so, and I'm a big fan. The card door is accessible, but only if you don't need to see it. I don't think it's quite as sturdy as the Orca-32, but it feels a bit more nimble to me and there's a spot to put your business card in the front for some nice advertising. 😀 I did have to buy a Porta Brace leather handle to carry it when not on a harness, but now it's smooth sailing.
