Customer Reviews

Works perfectly! I plan on buying a second one! I bought this for my studio and it works like a charm. I couldn't believe the quality when I got it in because the price was pretty low. I plan on buying a second one too. One thing I did learn once I got it, you don't need to fill the sand bag up all the way with sand. It only requires maybe 2/3 of the bag to filled because it only need enough to help balance the weight of the strobe you are using. 5 stars for sure! 5Solid for the money- read on for limitations/suggestions Pros: reasonable cost, comes with a sandbag and attachment carabiner, has a quick release for the strobe/modifier.Cons: clamp is plastic (although good plastic), collapsed size is still 4', sandbag not very practicalThe clamp has four different sized holes you can put a pole though. The smallest diameter hole it will accommodate is about 20mm and the largest is about 30mm. Use the largest hole that will still allow you to clamp it down on your light stand. This boom/clamp will not work with the cheap 7' light stands that are widely available, the top section of the stand is too small to fit the clamp at 16.5mm, and the combined weight of the boom system is far too great.With the pole extended, you will need a counter balance weight in the 10-20lb range bringing the weight of the system (boom, clamp, strobe, modifier, counter balance weight) into the 20-30lb range. I have tested it successfully on the 9' and 12' Cowboy studio stands, as well as the Revelli 10' stand. You will need to sandbag your stand as it won't be stable with the boom.Even though the clamp appears to be the same on both sides, it isn't. One side is for the light stand and one is for the boom. See my pictures to get the setup done correctly. I highly suggest marking the clamp to save yourself time down the road if you will not be leaving it setup permanently. I marked where the boom goes, as well the where the light stand pole goes for the diameters I will likely use.The pole is in two sections, it collapses down to 4' and extends to about 6.5'. The base section is 30mm in diameter. The strobe end uses a standard 5/8" attachment point with the far end 1/4 threaded similar to most light stands. It also has a quick release which is handy. You may need to adjust the tension on the release levers using a small hex socket or needle nose pliers. On mine one was not tight enough and using it as is would have risked my equipment and the safety of those in the area.The sandbag is like those seen advertised on amazon from various sellers for use in photography. Although the sandbag is okay, I won't be using with the boom because it's too hard to adjust. As you change modifiers and the length of the boom, you need to constantly be adjusting the counter balance. Trying to put in and take out sand (or other ballast material) with every adjustment just isn't practical. Instead, I'm using several weights from a barbell set, each one with cord attached and it's own small carabiner. This makes it easy to add or take away a couple pounds at a time. One could also use filled bottles of water or any other ballast that can be attached to the ring bolt. If you are using this in a more or less permanent configuration (same strobe, modifier, boom length) then the sandbag may work fine for you. I'll instead use the sandbag to hold down the light stand which is a requirement with this setup.I hope this review was useful to you. 4Great bargain piece Note that my 5 stars take into consideration that I didn't have to pay $150 for this - I give it 5 stars because it is a great bargain, a very useful piece of equipment and even better than I expected considering the price. It is mostly metal except for the mounting bracket, which is of a high strength plastic. I don't worry about the plastic piece breaking - they used the plastic in the best way on this boom, anyplace else and it might cheapen it too much. There are 4 sizes on the mounting bracket for each side (one side goes on the stand, and one on the boom arm), so it should fit most any size stand. Somebody commented that you need to mark which side of the bracket goes where - I don't know why you would, the sides of the mount are interchangeable and the mounting bracket can be rotated so that it doesn't matter which side goes on the stand, and visa versa. There is an eye on the end for the sand bag - the whole arrangement seems to work well. Sure, you can spend more money and get those multiple size weights that clamp onto the boom arm, but that costs more money than I need to spend on this. The clamps for extending are all metal and look like they will last. The tip on the end can be detached - a nice feature to have. I had to adjust the tension on one of the clamps, but that isn't a big hassle. One nice addition would be a carrying case. It's not high-end studio gear for big lights, but that should be obvious. Overall - I'd highly recommend this boom! 5A solid piece of equipment. This is a well constructed addition to my camera equipment. The dual head clamp head holds securely, even with both weight bags attached to the boom end. I used this to hold a halo light high above/behind my subjects and it stayed in place, even with the jostling.The grip head is a bit confusing to attach to a tripod but once you get it attached, you can remove the boom by loosening the clamp. the clamp is designed to accommodate several different sizes of down tubes. The boom fits the largest opening in the clamp head.The boom head will work with multiple devices so I can use the boom for a reflector, a light, a flash or whatever else I need. Very versatile. 4Pretty solid construction, but a bit sloppy on quality I ordered mine to be delivered for a same-day shoot and had to use it as-is due to the time constraint, but I likely would've returned it for a replacement had it not been for that. The terminus of the boom was cross-threaded and jammed. I'm not sure if this compromises the integrity of the boom at all, but it is definitely unsightly and smacks of sloppy quality control. see photo. 3I Knew What I Was Getting, Yet I Didn't Quite Know What I Was Getting I figured for the price I paid for this, it would end up being a bit on the thin and light side. I wasn't expecting a boom that seems to be of the same heavy and sturdy build of boom arms costing twice as much. This thing means business. In fact, I'm now going to have to buy a heavy duty light stand with which to use it, because my regular ones will definitely groan under this thing's weight and reach. That's not a bad thing at all, mind you.Also, the picture and description didn't seem to indicate that it comes with a counterweight bag, but it did. That was a very nice surprise, as I was dreading having to order one separately, since they only seem to come in costly sets of three or more.I'm very impressed with this thing already, and I haven't even used it yet. But, I've been in this business long enough to know a good thing when I get my hands on it, and this is a very good thing, especially for the price. 5Make sure you know what stand you need as this ... Make sure you know what stand you need as this doesn't give u much info about a stand before buying. This is not a pro boom so most amateurs would be looking at this and have little or no knowledge of the fact that this boom will not fit standard stands. Do your research before buying on what stand u need for it. I gave it two stars because the company appears to just try and sell their product without info on completion of this boom 2Affordable, but low to average quality. While this is inexpensive, with that comes some cheapness. The entire clamp is plastic and the sandbag I received leaked sand. I had to remove it all and put it in Ziploc bags.I don't quite get the lock setup at the end of the extension pole. Why would you need to remove the light mounting tip? If you accidentally grab the wrong lever or hit the lever by accident, your light comes crashing down. By the design you cannot remove the screw or remove the lever.On a 10 ft. HD stand and 4 pound light head this whole thing became too unstable and wobbly. I ended up buying a nice c-stand. If it weren't too much hassle I would have returned this. I'll use it for reflectors or something lightweight. 2Cowboy Studio products are low to medium quality at affordable ... Cowboy Studio products are low to medium quality at affordable prices. Everything I have purchased from them has been " So So". You get what you pay for. These had issues as well which I needed to correct. But since they were inexpensive I don't mind fixing their items up. These ones had screws and nuts problems. Know what you are buying. 3Poor quality for the price I was expecting a bit more for the price tag. Although it's cheap, it's built even cheaper. The metal head on the top just pops off - anything mounted at any sort of angle can easily slip out. So what's the point of this entire stand?Also the springs in the clamps are already coming out, and I just took it out of the box. Very disappointed. 3
