The result, is Second Shooter Plus. Second Shooter Plus is a reimagined counterpart to its predecessor and introduces features and upgrades that stem from thousands of hours in-the-field and requests from an enormous group of talented filmmakers looking to dig deeper into their craft. Kessler has always prided itself on listening and engaging their customers to design and manufacture the best products available and with Second Shooter Plus, Kessler believe they have done exactly that.
