        Comments about Matthews Hollywood Head, Arm - 40":

        Matthews is worth the money. Not that I know if there are cheaper ones but don't waste your time. The latest iteration of a long line of head and arm combos, these are essential on any set. I've used some for as long as 15 years and with the new metal washers, these will likely see use by my kids. Or they'll bury me with a couple just to get me out of any jams I may encounter in the afterlife.

          Once you start using Matthews stands, it's hard to stop, and the Hollywood Head with the 40" arm works great on top of a C-stand or other heavy duty stand.

                I bought this head/arm combo to replace a cheaper one I got with an off-brand C-Stand. The cheaper arm & head refused to stay locked, regardless of how the stand was used, oriented, or whether I had a 3rd party friction plate installed.

                This combination locks solid, and is easy to use with nice, big handgrips. Should have gotten them the first time around...

                      I love the Matthews Hollywood arm because it is made of stainless steel. Not only will it take a beating and last forever, you can cut the bar.

                      I have a Tenba 38" rolling bag. I cut my arms to 36" and keep the remaining 4" piece as a pencil point for the other end.

                      Love these bars!

                        The product works as expected with good flexibility and solid locking.

                        If you are using this for a strobe head don't forget to order the pin.

                          Use it to hold alien bee's with modifier on my light stands. Very light but strong. Was ready to work when it arrived. Make sure you buy a pin for it if you want to use it with Bee's.
