    I have purchased several Impact products and I am very happy with them. So, when I saw this product, which looked really high tech, and respectfully seems cable of doing all sort of reflector holder and related things I went for it. However on my first use with my impact 42" (purchased in conjunction with it) reflector it proved otherwise.

    The fasteners that adjust and hold the reflector up and / or at an angle failed to secure it. Especially the larger lever shaped one: as you tighten it the metal pin (embedded in plastic) that anchor the fasten grinds its way out comes out as you tighten it.

    I had to use a vise clamp to re-embed the pin and super glue to hopefully secure it. A real drag!

    I am a beginner in this, so it could just be my misunderstanding of how to use it, but it is advertised as being capable of holding a reflector up to 60", but it failed to support the weight of my 42" reflector?

    I return the 42" reflector for a 32" one (with less weight) and I am hoping for the best.

    Respectfully, I my comments on this product are limited to the aforementioned.

      Comments about Impact Telescopic Collapsible Reflector Holder:

      I use this item to hold various collapsible reflector discs and foam core boards. I most like the large clips which grasp the reflector from each side and do not let go until you manually release them. This is an advantage when you have various brands/types of reflectors or want to non-standard DIY panel reflectors. The mechanism appears to be more reliable than other holders that just use a small spring clamp attaching onto the edge of the reflector's frame.Regarding the downside, I find the construction mediocre and the adjustment of the telescopic rod is not smooth requiring extra handling than should be necessary. This can be annoying if you need to move quickly and don't want to be all thumbs. The tightening screws and collars along the telescoping rod appear to be made of lower end plastic and I assume they will break with heavy duty use within 6 months or less... just don't gorilla grip it.Although the item is difficult to adjust, and the tightening screws feel chimpsy, I do find the rods and the stand mount durable. An unexpected, yet nice feature is the included counterweight which helps when you have a larger reflector attached.That said and given the price point, I would still buy this again. Other options, such as framed panels, may be more ideal, but they are above my budget.I am somewhat surprised there are limited options for this type of device. It would only take one company to provide an option that is durable, reliable, easy to adjust, well fabricated, and use higher quality mechanisms to beat what is out there. I would pay a little more for these features, but it seems that this is something not even the higher cost options offer, so this is definitely a better value.

      Comments about Impact Telescopic Collapsible Reflector Holder:

      Works great on a stand, but wish it had a grip for hand holding on location. Clamps for reflector could be a little larger to help keep the reflector from blowing around. Nit picky things, but reviews are for being critical.

      Very satisfied and will get much use out of it.

      Comments about Impact Telescopic Collapsible Reflector Holder:

      This is a fairly nice reflector holder. On previous shoots I had had to duct tape or gaff tape this board to a c-stand, but this can be put onto any light stand, or even a tripod, if you're so inclined.The weight on the end is enough to balance a 42' circular reflector when the reflector is held from the top. In my testing, I've noticed if said large board is held from the sides, the weight on the end will tip over a stand that you haven't sandbagged down, or bend a stand that isn't that heavy-duty. So, be aware of that.All in all, a good value, and I'm going to offer its use on any production I'm called into.

        I had it for just about a week, clips to my 5in1 60x45" reflector just fine with the sheet on. So far its been good, it is plastic so be gentle. Arm can be used with a tripod, which made it stable even during the windy outdoors shoot.

          Easy to use.
          I wish there was a way to secure the clips that hold reflectors, because outside the reflector will move around if it is windy.

                  I really like how this holder has a counter weight at one end to help stabilize the reflector.

                  I'm not a fan of is how the c-stand/light stand attachment point is all plastic, while the rest of the holder is metal.

                  In addition to holding a reflector, I had hoped I could extend this out to hold a diffuser disk, but because the clips can't be relocated to other sections of the telescoping boom, there is only so far you can move it out. Aside from that, it works well, but positioning is limited due to its reach. This is the only reason I didn't give it five stars.

                        I brought this originally to hold a reflector, but then decided to use it at a light holder as well. I had to buy an 5/8" stud to 1/4"-20 adapter to attach my light to the end of this boom, because there are no treads there, just a 5/8" rod.
                        The construction is quite solid, and I would expect to last a while with good care, and inside only use. I would not recommend using this outside with a reflector unless there was absolutely no wind.
                        I am pleased with this product as it is strong, and useful for multiple things.

                        Comments about Impact Telescopic Collapsible Reflector Holder:

                        I'm very happy with this holder. It's well made and is constructed from good materials. It holds the reflector firmly and looks like it is made to last.

                          I primarily got this piece of equipment thinking it would help my assistant. At the end of the day it has allowed me to do more shoots without an assistant at all. Saves me time and money, what else could I want from my gear?
