            I like it when I called the 1800 number and they were courteous, friendly, and went the extra mile to help me. They didn't say "no" to any of my attainable requests. Thank you for doing that! :)

                One of our C stands came up missing it's extension arm, and for about 1/2 the price of the "name brand" I have a complete stand again. We've only used it on a few shoots, but it seems to be built well enough to last for years.

                          I use this on a traidtional light stand with sandbag. This holds my Lowel pro light which I typically use as a backlight. Good and sturdy!

                                    This has a different type of metallic finish to the arm itself so it doesn't match the chrome look of the C-stand but I am not worried about that. The arm and head work great.

                                        i usually use this to "arm out" a small light.
                                        I actually cut a few inches off... so now it fits in my ARRI softbank kit.

                                          Love that it's heavy and built tough! These things are nearly indestructable and will last you forever. Try not to overcrank or over tighten the t handle. Just a little is all you need. Also, make sure if you're hanging anything heavy from the arm that you counterbalance it with a sand bag, and also put a sandbag around each leg of the C Stand you're using it with.

                                            Get this as an additional arm for the Impact C-Stand. It's awesome and it'll allow you to hang extra things (lights, mics) on the C-Stand.

                                              Heavy, sturdy, and does exactly what it is intended to do. A must have item in any grip or lighting kit.

                                              Grip Arms/Heads have to be my favourite gear to manipulate on set: armed with a good c-stand and some sandbags and you can create some really creative rigs. This arm is strong, with an interesting 'sandpaper' like texture to ensure a tight grip. My only complaint would be the size of the tightening knob on the grip head: it's a little big and doesn't feel as solid as some of the more expensive heads I've seen. That said, it does exactly what it should for an amazing price!

                                                    Just as good as Matthews and in my opinion better than the Avenger arms.

                                                    The grip assembly will bind up if used for a larger diameter than it's meant for, but when used properly, it's perfect!
