I’ve only had the opportunity to use the stand a couple of times, but found the build-quality to be very good. I chose the 16’ over the 13’ because it was only $20 more – and the extra feet will be useful. Price was great, and delivery was fast. Plus, it’s a Canadian company. Recommended.
I have only played with the item, not used it for any shoots. It does give me more options for mounting lights and big lights at that. I may not have needed this size of unit as it does use a lot of floor space but one of the reasons I bought it was the small one was not secure for big softboxs. Quality build and construction means I will have this unit for years.
One of the best perches i have made to my gear, the easy transition from light stand to boom for audio is for me wroth its weight in gold !
Ive even used this pole for combo lights and audio . would not leave home without it.My next buy will be the bag as i see from the video it can carry my tripod and this pole simultaneously . Thank you STROBEPRO
This is my first boom stand and I’m very impressed with the build quality, weight, durability and multiple uses both in studio and in the field. I’m mainly a wedding photographer so having the 16-foot reach to shoot over the heads and other obstructions in the reception venue is great. Plus the weight, combined with the deluxe tri-sandbag, makes it very difficult for children or inebriated guests to accidentally knock it over. On the flip side, having the boom capability for studio or portrait work is wonderful.
