While browsing my favorite auction site, in the LF section, I came across the new and "improved" model of the LITTMAN 45 SINGLE VI. This latest version is to have a major improvement in the struts of the front standard. The manufacturer has installed some sort of "counterweights" on the front struts. I read his explanation in the advertising, but could not understand it because the prose in which it is written is quite disastrous. I would like to ask if anyone in the forum knows why the "counterweights" have been installed there and what exact function do they serve. I have never seen anything like this. I have an identical Polaroid, and the struts are fine, they do not twist nor bend and never need adjustment or repair. What is the reason for this? The ad indicates also that it is a technique used in bridge construction. Never seen the like of it. Any thoughts? Is this an innovative technique or just added weight?
