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.
I love this boom stand, and the fact that it can either be a regular light stand or a boom stand. It holds my Godox MS300 strobe with a collapsible Impact 34" beauty dish no problem. I have not tried ot extend the boom to its maximum distance yet, but will try this when I need to do that. Right now I only need minimal extension on the boom. I would purchase this product again.
I have purchased many things from Strobepro and they never disappoint!! Their customer service is number one, their products are excellent and their shipping and delivery is second to none! Will definitely continue to buy from them!
I've had this Boom Light Stand Kit for a few days now. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much as, prior to my order, I had not heard of Strobepro so I wasn't aware of their reputation or equipment. I must say, though, that after the stand's arrival and unpacking, I was instantly very impressed - this thing is really solid! The stand feels incredibly sturdy and I wouldn't be afraid to put any light on here (within reason of course). The included sandbag holder is a nice touch. The only thing I was slightly disappointed at finding was that the stand is not air-cushioned, but I'm still a very happy customer. Great service at Strobepro, plus the instructional videos on their website are excellent and really help you understand the product pre-purchase. I would buy again from Strobepro in a heartbeat. Let's all support Canadian business in these challenging times!
