    Folks, I'm looking at this for a shoulder pad on the URSA Major. I'm thinking this will fit well under the mount grooves of the URSA with the rods holding it. Has any body trying doing this before? It's a cheap option too.

    I received the Fotga shoulder pad today. Its top where the rails goes through is about 1/8" thicker and 1/4" wider is does not fit under the Ursa major based. Verdict is it won't work.

    Do you have a powered hand sander? I would slap on a sheet of 240 grit and sand off the excess rubber then smooth it out with 1000 grit. I found a used sander for $10 at a pawn shop, but you could find a new for a few bucks more. It's better if it takes square sheets so it matches the shape of the pad, like this one:

    This pad looks about the same thickness, so you might have the same problem with other pads in this style. In the long run, buying a bunch of pads just to find out they won't fit will cost more than a single sander. I don't know, just a thought.

    Thanks Fuego. I will consider your suggestion. On the other hand, I still could use the shoulder pad on my BMPCC rig and just buy the Porta brace pads which I believe others have used on the URSA and the URSA mini with the big boy.

    What about this?

    http://www.smallrig.com/SMALLRIG-Sho...lock-1490.html

    It's $10 more than the PB pad and has less cushion, but that quick release block would just snap into the rods.

    Or this pad combined with the same quick release block?

    Haven't used any of these myself - just ideas. On the flip side, the Major's weight plus battery ~20lbs might break that rod clamp.

    I like that Smallrig foam with cheese plate. I could use it with the VCT plate. Price is reasonable too. I'll checked it out. Thanks again bud!
