    I am looking for a good quality articulating arm for my monstro/monitor. I am using the Red version, but I am sure that one is a rebranded one from China. It works but think it will wear out and doesn't hold up to well without cranking down on the lever.

    Titan Arm is the best I've used.

    I was looking at that one. But the elbow on the arm doesn't look like it allows much movement since it's not a ball joint? It looks huge too. Is it heavy?

    Titan is solid and once unlocked the movement is fluid.
    I also have a couple Noga arms and they are alright-but not as solid as the Titan.

    SmallRig arms, you can make them short or long as you like and with different screws,... on each side

    Matthews Infinity arm is my favorite and the most rugged and reliable I've used, by a mile, even over the Titan arm. Not sure if Matthews still makes them anymore though

    They all kind of suck and fail eventually. I find the small rig arms the most cost efficient ones. They have rosettes at the main joint, so they don't slip very much.

    I used almost every single arm out there... the Titan arm is head and shoulders above the rest. It is heavier than most arms but it will outlast your career.

    Infinity arm, can be used as a handle as well.
