              Solid metal construction. I wish it replaced my cheap savage clamp but that boom stand is too fat for this manfrotto. This would be perfect for normal stands.

                        Well built, easy to work with, Makes adjusting the boom arm quick and simple. I use this to attach a long boom arm to pole on heavy duty light stand.

                        I purchased this to replace a cheap plastic clamp, that deformed under the weight of an empty arm. This Manfrotto clamp is metal, and more than strong enough to hold the 10 pounds I use for my monolight (hair-light) with counter weight. It even holds the angle well without the counter weight on a 5 foot long boom arm.

                        I think it is safer and sturdier to use this type of double clamp to hook onto the pole of the light stand, rather than use the grip heads that hook onto the riveted 5/8 stem on top of the light pole.

                          The thought put into this boom clamp is amazing. I opened the box and didn't expect what was in it. Heavy-duty, great fit, adjustable, easy to use. I actually took a photo and sent it to a friend and he replied, "How much money is on the end of that boom? You bought a quality clamp for a reason." And he is definitely right!

                                I purchased a cheap boom stand that could hold 19lbs. The stand and boom arm themselves are great. Especially since I only paid [$] for it. The only part I didn't like was the plastic boom clamp. This makes the whole assembly much easier to use and more solid.

                                      This is a very useful product that can turn your regular light stand to a boom stand. It is strong enough to attach a boom arm (or aven another light stand) to a light stand.

                                      Comments about Manfrotto 124 Clamp for 3085 Boom Arm:

                                      I purchased this clamp along with the Manfrotto 2942 Mini Boom Arm with 3 lbs Counterweight. It's a sturdy and well made item as is with all Manfrotto products I've encountered so far. I like that it has openings that will allow it to attach to any boom arm or lightstand ranging from 20mm to 28mm.

                                      This is my first clamp and as such it does take some getting used to for mounting it to a lightstand or for mounting a boom arm into it, because of the spring mechanism, but otherwise it's a very good product.

                                      I've read other reviews about this clamp being able to support heavy light setups and though I don't have too much doubt about it (cuz this is well made), I can only testify of it's ability to steadily support my speed light setup: Nikon SB900, with an umbrella in an umbrella bracket attached to the aforementioned Manfrotto boom arm. I will soon be getting a speedlight softbox (either the 24inch lastolite ezybox or the Cheetah Qbox) to mount the same way which i'm sure this clamp will be able to support perfectly.

                                              Its surprising that this grips a 9lbs kino flo light on a 5ft extension. The pole is bent but the clamp is locked tight!

                                                  This clamp is bigger and heavier than I thought. It is very well made, ver strong and will last forever. Just the quality one would expect from Manfrotto. With 4 different sizes of tubes it can work with and clear markings, this tool is made for serious pros.
