        Comments about Alan Gordon Enterprises Engraved Combo Slate:

        I needed to get a clapper for sync and this looks MUCH more professional than having your talent clap their hands in front of their face. Plus, we all know how "talent" like to have keep clapping. This just makes it easy and professional. I wish it had updated fields such as fps, CODEC, card (instead of "roll") and more detailed stereo sound info.

              Comments about Alan Gordon Enterprises Engraved Combo Slate:

              Just got done using my new slate clapboard on a shoot and I'm very satisfied with it. The construction is quite good and it makes a loud clap aided by two magnets. I would highly recommend this clapper if you want one that is well-made and seems like it would last for years. The only problem I had was that the gal who was doing the clapping was short and had to hold the clapboard over her head at times so the camcorder could see it. I hardly feel this was the fault of the manufacturer. ;-) Great product.

                Got to use for the first time during the film shootout here in Roswell and after so many claps with 2nd ACs that don't respect other people's equipment its still going strong.

                    The hinge is solid and well built and the board itself is very well designed. Used for the first last during the scifi film shootout here in Roswell and after so many claps from newbie 2nd ACs that don't respect other people's equipment its still going strong.

                          I've had this for a few weeks and 2 5 hours shoots so far. Works great. Sturdy wood and joints. Nice loud sound. Magnet to keep it from flapping. Whiteboard works nicely. No real complaints.

                            Bought this slate to use for a short film and is really pulling it's weight. Even used a thin LED to backlight it in dark locations. Acrylic is easy to wipe off as well.

                              I'm not an expert on slates by any means, but I do know what it should be able to do. The Alan Gordon slate is easily the best I've used so far. It's lightweight, durable, and really well-made. It came in it's own zipper carrying case with an Expo brand dry erase marker.

                              Unlike other, cheaper slates I've used, the clapper itself is made of very lightweight wood that gives it a really clean snap.

                              It's nothing fancy, but it does simplicity well. I'd recommend this to anyone.

                                  The slate board is perfect. It has a substantial feel and it will last a lot longer being engraved. Including a marker and a storage bag was a nice touch too. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the travel bag zipper keeps getting stuck (it is cheaply made) and I feel like the price is on the high end for a very nice peice of plastic.

                                      This has been in heavy use for the past week on an indy film project. Clapper makes a nice clean 'crack' sound. Built in magnet keeps clapper boards together nicely. Supplied dry erase marker works perfectly and erases completely. Carrying pouch is really a nice feature to keep the marker around when not in use. One item, the board is very shiny and if you hold it at a wrong angle the reflection can make the writing unreadable. This would be a problem with any whiteboard-based system, however.

                                        I used this in taping commercial and documentary footage.

                                        It does the job and is well made. Back side works fairly well as a white balance card.

                                            After reading many reviews about other slates, I hesitated about this one also. However, the slate remains solid. I have no problems with erasing what I wrote. It is sturdy, thick and it has a good claping sound. (no pun intended) lol.

                                            It's going to be with me for a looooong time. It seems pricey, but it's going to last.
