    Comments about Matthews Baby Boom:

    I also own the Mathews Jr Boom and this works better when I don't have room for the larger boom. This one holds plenty and is very sturdy. I mount this on a digi Mathews stand. With Hensel integra mono lights and Mola beauty dishes, I have no worries of an expensive tip over. I have friends that have had lights fall on clients because of cheaper made booms. I lent them my jr boom and stand and they bought one too.

    I do use thirty pounds of sand bags on the stand as an insurance policy.

    Comments about Matthews Baby Boom:

    Researched boom setups extensively and settled on this one. Couldn't have been more happy with my choice.

    I needed to hang a Mathews Magic finger, Elinchrom Quadra and a Beauty dish or 53" Octa box. Wanted something that would not bend in the arm or not be finicky to adjust in the field. This Boom arm is so good that I have no issues using it both in studio and on-location.

    The boom can easily hold the above setup at any angle or extension. Coupled with a steel Avenger Stand I have no need for a counterweight, even in the field. I still sandbag the base of the stand.

    This is a great boom, rock solid, and easy to adjust. It should have a lifetime of decades. It is heavy, but worth every penny.
