Strobepro products and customer support is top notch. I have invested a few thousand into this companies products, and do not regret it. Fast repairs for the working photographer (the gear is solid, I’m just clumsy.) Fast shipping to even remote parts of Canada - I live in Bella Coola, B.C. Very informative videos to learn about the products before you buy them. Can’t wait to place my next order!
Works great in conjunction with the STROBEPRO SPEEDLITE FLASH BRACKET and a small flash or even with the Strobepro X200 - I personally haven't used anything heavier. Getting the counter balance bag with the boom arm is a well received added value and should be used every time you use the boom arm. Kevin, from Strobepro clarified a question I had by suggesting the spigot usually be attached in line with the boom arm before attaching a "light". Since I have done that I have had no "twisting" of the boom arm/light combination. My go to combination is a Strobepro 10' Auto Stand, the Strobepro Universal Boom Arm, a Strobepro Speedlite Bracket, Strobepro X200 Flash Unit and Strobepro 32" Rapid Beauty Dish Kit. In this configuration I use to boom arm in the fully collapsed position or with the next biggest extension tube pulled out 6" to 8". I personally have not used the boom arm extended past this length.
