Me too! Only a 3046 base. I use it for all MF and the Speed Graphic (looks good on the Bogen ). I do have a little fatigue carrying it about now a days since I'm recovering from radiation treatment, but, at age 70, I still make it pretty good. I use a luggage cart to haul the LF stuff in the field. Only one caveat: I had to replace the aluminum leg braces with a more structurally appropriate aluminum strip, available at the local hardware, because I broke the original when attempting to fold it after use. Those braces are rather flimsy. The conversion was relatively easy and done in my garage with normal "woodworking" tools.
