Sell Glidecam HD 2000 for Ronin M?

Hi,
I recently got the opportunity to buy a lightly used Ronin M. In order to do that though, I'm going to have to sell my Glidecam and maybe even my B cam (a canon 60D)
Would it be worth it?

Can you test it out to see if you like the look it produces and how it handles ?

I have actually, and I see pros and cons to both... The glidecam has more of an organic movement and I've become quite good at using it, but the ronin has much more "crispy" movements and would be better than the glidecam for shooting closeups and shots when I need to run with it.

I would say go for it. I bought a Ronin last week, and I love it! Im not having any issues with the 4th axis (Footsteps) at all, probably because im used to using a Flycam, so you shouldnt have any issues either. The only advantage to a Glidecam is like you say, the more organic movement
