      So what you get is a "better-than-standard" avenger/matthews style grip head for a few bucks less, with first class milling and plating. It's better because you get a solid aluminum washer (not sure if the big boys do that in all their heads - used to be fiber that would deteriorate,leaving you with a head that could kill lights or even people) AND the openings for booms and flags are ridged, giving great grip. And finally, the tightening knob... it's HUGE. This makes it much easier to torque it down (and release it)... but it will come as a shock when you first unpack it (I was like, "did they send junior gear??!?!"). It's a nice feature, but if your packing setup is tight, you may have to rethink - though most folks likely transport these in a box, dairy crate, or already on a stand (which means your stand bags could be a little stressed).

      Very weighty and has a great, solid build. I use it in conjunction with my boom pole holder when I'm recording interviews or when I'm doing recordings for long periods of time to save my arms. It clamps onto my mic stand firmly and works great! The only problem I have with it sometimes is on occasion it tends to slip when the boom is extended out all the way (4.6m), so it requires careful counter-balancing with shotbags. When it is weighted like this, its a little difficult to make minor position adjustments. But over all I'm very pleased with it!

        Big difference from my existing Grip head. This is much easier to turn and lock due to the large handle.

            This is a simple but very useful device for attaching items to a C-stand. Build quality and finish is fine, no rough edges and looks like it would last longer than I will! I have seen similar items selling for much more, but I can't imagine why they would be better. It is the smaller 2.5" diameter mount, but seems to have great holding power. I currently use it to support a 10 foot boom mic with Rode blimp on a boom cradle, fully extended with no problems.

                              I use this Grip Head for a variety of shoots (i.e. on a short film, corporate videos, etc.), and I love it. I bought two and they both serve me very well. They fasten very securely and you get a 3/8 and 5/8 female connectors. I plan to buy several more once I purchase a few more lights. This will be my go-to grip head and I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to produce high quality content on a budget!

                                Very cost effective grip head. Very solid and works great for my initial application of holding equipment on top of a suction cup car mount. Should work great for basic light stand applications too.

                                    The gold standard in grip heads seems to be the Avenger or the Mathews. Well, add Impact to the list. This product is every bit as good as my Mathews. Solid, well-machined, heavy duty, and nice looking. Impact products these days seem very good to excellent. I have no complaint about the Quik Box or any other items I've bought recently.

                                    Well this is a well built piece of gear, but chunkier and heavier than your typical Matthews head. Of course it's as strong as can be, so that's a plus.

                                      Nice, quality grip head. I had purchased this and the vise grip to try and mount a diy scrim made from pvc. It would have done the job, but my light stand was not tall enough or really heavy duty enough for the job, so for now I am sending it back. Would work well with a heavy duty c-stand.

                                          A very solid, heavy duty piece of gear. I usually work with Matthews grip gear, but I actually like the handle on this more.

                                            I use this with my Auray boom pole holder on top of my light stand to double mic interviews. Not cheaply light weight and all metal feels very solid, but a little larger than I would have preferred.

                                                Bought 4 of these for a few cheap stands and they're all great.
