The 13' rotatable boom light stand is awesome! I got it to use with a speedlight setup in a Wescott Apollo 50" softbox. It's the only boom setup I've tried, but works well. It was a little tippy, but thats to be expected with that big of a box, 2 speedlights, and triggers hanging off the end of it. Seems to be quite durable from first impressions. I love that everything is metal! The only thing I would say is if you have the room, go for the 16' if you want more options/versatility.
The stand is easy to set up and well built ! Great value !
This item is essentially as described - its is sturdy, well-built, and has lots of great features that make it versatile for many different situations. I would say that perhaps if the legs went out slightly wider (perhaps 1 extra inch or 2) it would be far more stable. I have been using it with a Godox flash and the Strobepro 51" Para-Deep Umbrella Kit (yes, it is pretty darn big for this stand!) and I must be very careful moving it around. The counter weight that comes with it is invaluable, and considering how much reach one can get, it packs up very well. All in all an awesome product!
Perfect! This product is awsome!
