RigCast High Honors

This list is meant to provide a flash resource on items that RigCast highly recommends. Some have an R3, some don’t (yet). Most all of these are high-scoring go-to gear that RC has found to be of high value. The key descriptor here is “high value.” There are going to be much more expensive products, that might perform better, but RC has found these products to be comparable to more expensive options while maintaining a reasonable price.

These recommendations are obviously highly subjective. This is not meant to be an end-all list of what is best, labeling all other products as inferior. It is simply a recommendation list compiled strictly from RigCast’s personal experiences with these specific products. There are obviously going to be comparable products that perform just as well (or better), with similar value. So please, chew on this page with a grain of salt.
