RRS L Bracket for 1DX

Hi all,

I'm going to purchase a L bracket from Really Right Stuff for my 1DX.

SInce RRS have no dealers in Europe - I'm from Italy - I have no other choice but order it on their website. My question is, will the L bracket fit my Kirk Quick Release Clamp?

Link to Kirk QR here: http://www.kirkphoto.com/2_in_Quick_Release_Clamp.html

I asked RRS and the response was: Your B1DX-L should fit in the Kirk QR without issues, however I cannot give a guarantee as the tolerance on Kirk equipment is looser than the tolerance on our equipment.  If the clamp you are using is an 1 ½” Arca-Swiss style clamp then there is a very good chance that they will be compatible.

I'm preferring the RRS bracket over the Kirk because the RRS is made of two separate parts so that I can use just the plate or the plate with the L bracket attached, while the Kirk is made of one single piece.

I'd like to hear from someone who use Kirk QR before buying RRS, is it compatible? Are actually plates and L brackets compatible with most clamps?

Thanks for your help.
