          If you work with grip heads, you need to get a bunch of these to use for mounting pretty much anything. Solid.

              Very rugged and feels heavy duty. Doesn't matter to me, but might bother some....the finish on these are very rugged, not like the Avengers which looks nicer.

              Fits like a glove, unlike the Avenger

                  Comments about Matthews 6" Pin with Collar:

                  I own an Elinchrom Freelite A and this pin slides in and fastens beautifully. I also own an Avenger E700 drop down pin which is not braided like this Matthews pin. The Matthews has a thicker diameter and the stud head is also slightly longer. I suspect this is why the Matthews works so much better. When I fasten the Avenger pin tight, due to the smaller diameter and smaller stud, it actually leans to one side, which I can't stand.

                    This pin is as simple as it gets. Its a great addition to a c-stand/boom combo for mounting soft boxes.

                      I only give it 4 stars because I reserve that rating for only the most awesome of things.

                      This should have come with the C-stand grip kit.
                      I hate having to order necessary things separately.

                      This is a big steel pin that will last a lifetime I'm sure.

                                  Would have given 5 stars, but this is something I believe should be included. Is it absolutely necessary? There are yes and no debates out there, but for the price it is worth having.

                                    I got the mathews c stand.... didn't realize i wouldn't be able to mount lights without it. Ended up having the stand for 2 weeks without it waiting for it to arrive. You pretty much have to have it, so it doesn't matter how good it is built lol. But in that respect thing is solid steel it looks like and you can pretty much beat the mess out of it and it will keep working.

                                      I highly recommend this for use with strobes on a grip arm. I use mine with the Avenger 2030kit.

                                              I purchased the 6" pin to use on the arm of my Matthews C-Stand for my studio strobes. It is extremely well made and works perfectly. Anyone owning a C-Stand should have one of these for mounting accessories and lights.

                                                Nice little pin allows you to use a c stand grip arm to mount a strobe. Very cool!

                                                  This should be included as part of the c stand "complete" kit along with the turtle base, stand risers, arm and clamps.

                                                  Nice item. Just order one when you order the stand itself. Great accessory to complete your stand.

                                                    good addition to boom arm. Has the large end on it to prevent pin from slipping through clap if you have a larger softbox and head in use.

                                                    I use these with my 40" arms and grip heads to hold my Elinchrom monoblocs. They make it easy to turn your arms into short booms especially with a big softbox that is hard to angle on a stand.
