Revolvr & Revolvr Atom
These modular follow focuses aim to afford users the versatility and accuracy they're going to need to tackle whichever situation they find themselves in. However, probably the most notable feature is the Soft and Hard Stops. The mechanisms are completely independent of each other, so you can set your A and B positions wherever you like -- you can also drop plungers if you want to use hard stops. The Hard Stop feature is available on both the Revolvr and the Revolvr Atom.
The Revolvr starts at $2400, while the Revolvr Atom starts at $1600. Accessories and add-ons can be purchased à la carte. They will be available in 8 to 10 weeks, so be sure to check out Bright Tangerine for more information and updates.
