The Big F’ing Combo Wheels (formerly Rock n’ Roller Wheel Sets) from Matthews Studio Equipment are set to be a hit with all of you gaffers, grips, and DITs! This latest offering from Matthews Studio Equipment gives you the opportunity to roll equipment instead of picking it up.
With an equally cool name, the Rock n’ Rollers (with Bob Seager kicking in when we say it), have been designed with input from DITs, Steadicam ops, grips, and gaffers and are compatible with all Matthews Combo Stands and also any stand with a 1” square tube leg. And the process of installing them couldn’t be easier! Simply slip them on and tighten the Matthews’ proprietary Spring Steel Sleeve and you’re ready to go!
“won’t go flat, keeping your movements smooth and easy”
ROLL over Beethoven
Matthews Studio Equipment has made the Big F’ing Wheels out of foam semi-pneumatic tires. They are 3” wide x 8” diameter that “won’t go flat, keeping your movements smooth and easy.” You can “roll smoothly over rocks, power cables, cable cross-overs, gravel, asphalt, uneven concrete, and soft grass.”
I want to BRAKE free
The face-locking pedal brake features an adjustable pad, a dual-lock mechanism, and a round top plate that keeps pointy corners out of the way when engaging and disengaging it.
Gimme THREE Steps
No matter if it’s a Flanders’ Scientific monitor or an 18K you are transporting around set, the Big F’ing wheels can handle it. They come in three versions to suit every situation. The Monitor Wheel Set pairs with the Monitor Stand II and Slider Stands.
For Matthews Combo Stands or any stand with a 1” square tube leg, there’s the combo stand set. These come in really handy when moving large lights like 18Ks for recreating the sun. If you want to use the Big F’ing wheels with larger stands, the Mombo Combo set is compatible with 1-½” square tube leg stands.
If you’re after something that will increase your set-up speed and in harmony with your work rate, the Matthews Studio Equipment Stand Wheels sure are a big F’ing deal!
