Save $300.00
Original price $1,400.00
Current price $1,100.00

This Recoil rig is a shoulder rig designed specifically for the RED DSMC2 body, which includes the Raven, Weapon, Epic Weapon (Epic-W), and Scarlet Weapon (Scarlet-W), Monstro, Helium Gemini. This is a Next Generation Recoil rig designed for optimal balance and comfort when shoulder mounted or on a tripod. With lenses and cameras being similar weights, the balance point is where the lens meets the camera body. In a shoulder mount rig, the balance point needs to be directly over your shoulder which puts the camera behind you. The Recoil rig adjusts for that balance point and relocates focus, monitoring and camera controls forward, creating a lighter, shorter and properly balanced rig.


VCT Pro – ( Z-VCT-P) The Pro baseplate has a sliding top plate for quickly removing the camera from the fast changes, a built-in, curved shoulder pad, a v-wedge tripod connector (with ¼” 20 and 3/8" 16 screw option). It has removable and extendable 6.5” iris rods and rows of ¼” 20 screw holes along the sides for accessories. It has quick release 15mm rod parts in the rear. The recessed rod mount offers maximum accessory capable space under your camera lens. It has the most comfortable gel padding shoulder pad for all-day shoulder mounted work! 

Top Plate -(Z-RTP) is designed to work with the RED DSMC2 body, which includes the Monstro, Helium Gemini. It attaches to the top of the camera via four included ¼ 20 thread screws. It has numerous ¼ 20 screw holes on the top and sides for attaching various accessories. There are built in POGO connectors for the RED monitor and remote trigger accessory connections. You can also add Z-Locks on the front of the plate for adding top 15mm rods for mounting motors, etc by emailing 

Tactical Handle- (Z-TCH) is a slim design that fits comfortably in your hand. It gives you the ability to mount several accessories with the built-in ¼ 20 screw holes, Z-Rail on top and a mount. You can also add an optional 15mm Rod Lock for mounting an Axis Mini or articulating arm.

3” Z-Rail (Z-ZR3) - It attaches via (2) ¼” 20 screws (included) that are spaced 3/8" screw center to center at their closest to 2" 5/32" at their furthest. This is used to attach our Top Handle.

Shorty Trigger Grips (Z-SHTG) are 8” dual wooden handgrips that are comfortable and quick to flip into position. The Shorty Trigger Grips slide onto 15mm rods.  They allow for single-handed 360° rotation with the simple press of a trigger. The two handles rotate independently of each other. Flip them down for a low, rock-solid handgrip. Raise it up for more of an Aaton style

Special Notes:

The rod riser included on the VCT Pro in this kit is taller to accommodate the RED cameras
