We talked with Jose Larios, Sales and Marketing for Libec of America, to learn more about their SWIFT JIB50. The product is equipped with a telescopic arm that can be easily adjusted by simply turning the arm's lock levers. In addition, the jib can be retracted at both ends.

A stand-out feature of this model is its telescopic arm. Rather than fixing on extension units, a time consuming and often fiddly process, Jib50's arm simply extends by turning the lock levers. Despite this additional mechanism, the Libec jib is still able to support considerable loads. Even fully extended at 190cm, it can still hold a 10Kg load, as much as many other systems can manage at a metre length. At its shortest setting - 100cm - it has the build quality to hold an impressive 20Kg. This strength and adaptability makes the product a highly versatile piece of equipment.
