X-T1 grips and Really Right Stuff compatibility

Hi all.

I was thinking about buying one of the Arca Swiss compatible grips that Fuji make to go with my RRS lever release head ( link to ballhead type ) but on contacting RRS themselves, they could only say there was about a 50/50 chance it would be compatible. Has anyone used them together? Or any Fuji plates with the RRS lever release heads?

I was hoping RRS themselves would offer a plate with grip, but so far none seem available. Thanks for any help.

Please make sure that you look at the Fuji grip in person before buying! I did and did not like the feel of it. So I just order the rrs L-plate and very satisfied with it! Same price if you located in the US.

I don't have any RRS, but I have Fuji grips in my X-E1 and X-T1 and they work seamlessly on my Kirk head.

RRS makes great stuff and you can make a return if you need to.

I have the RRS quick release clamp with lever and the Fuji grip. They work perfectly together really like the setup.

I as well have the RRS head and grip and can confirm they work together really well.

FWIW, I went with the RRS plate with grip for my X100s and loved it.

For the X-T1, I went with the Fuji hand grip, since I currently don't need the L-plate part.

The X-T1 Fuji hand grip works great with my RRS lever release clamp.

I am surprised that RRS' X-T1 L-bracket doesn't seem to have a hand grip option.
