      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!

          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.

                    This is the only grip head I've ever purchased, so I can't really say I'm the greatest source of knowledge here. However, this is built super sturdy and does exactly what I need it to. I'm using it to hold some flags. I will probably never look at another brand for a grip head because I am completely satisfied.

                        I bought this grip head at the same time as a boom pole holder, so that I could have a functioning boom pole stand. So far it has worked great; and I have found no problems with it.

                                  I cant believe these sell for so little cost. This is an absolutely excellent piece of equipment. You can put heavy lights on this and it will hold it in place perfectly.

                                    This clamp feels much toucher and rugged than the price would suggest. The gripping power is really high too, it can hold a boom arm with flag out over 5' without a worry, even small lights on there make you question the boom before you question this clamp.

                                          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!

                                              I purchased the grip head to attach a boom pole holder onto a light stand. The grip head works wonderfully! It is sturdy, solid, has different sized openings to hold accessories of various diameter. If you're looking for a great grip head, you won't go wrong with this one.
