    I do agree: There are a bunch of moving parts. The old design where the clamping components were not retained was a pain, this was fixed with the new model.

    I do agree: There are a bunch of moving parts. The old design where the clamping components were not retained was a pain, this was fixed with the new model.

    I own and abuse regularly 4 Litedisc Holders.

    The bunch of moving parts is what that makes these useful: a light weight boom, flag holder (just add an umbrella clamp), or use the built inclamp to hold foam core, gobo's, small children (grin). I have used two Litedisc Holders on different stands to hold seamless paper or muslin when I did not want to haul my c-stands with me. Put a speedlight on that umbrella clamp a 30" umbrella and a boa bag, presto you have a quick top light. Oh, and you can use it to hold a Litedisc but, that is kind of a waste of a useful bit of gear.

    5 stars would be possible if the thumb screw the holds the arm to the stand was not plastic. I have had to replace the stock thumb screws because the plastic part broke off the steel bolt.

    This is light weight grip, if you treat it like a heavy or medium duty grip it will fail (crash into your set, break things, but that is another story). However, if you are hauling your gear to location and do not have an assistant or just want to keep the weight down, it is a useful addition to your portable kit.

    Buyer Beware!

    I own 3 of these. The first two are terrific. The new one is next to worthless. The boom doesn't slide well in the yoke because there is a plastic sleeve that's sloppy. ...Read complete review

    I own 3 of these. The first two are terrific. The new one is next to worthless. The boom doesn't slide well in the yoke because there is a plastic sleeve that's sloppy. The screws bind in their threads becuase of bad tapping. The plastic heads break off the thumbscrews because the plastic is so thin over the bolt head molded in. It is difficult or impossible to tighten the screws enough to hold a bigger lightdisk or the chroma backgrounds.

    I was too stupid to believe another bad review, becuase I already owned and liked the product - I should have believed it.

    Beware; this is not the product it once was! PHOTOFLEX - SHAME ON YOU. This change in quality ruined your credibility with me.

      Comments about Photoflex Telescopic Litedisc Holder - 36-67" (91-170cm):

      I am using this to hold 40" round reflectors (5-in-1) in a nearly horizonaton orientation. Despite some of the reviews, I find that this unit holds very well and I am not having my 40" reflectors sag. Depending upon your exact setup, one can swap positions of the rear reflector clip and grip head, so that the entire reflector is supported more towards the middle of the reflector, and not just on its end. This works perfectly with a Matthews side arm, holding the reflector to bouce fill from either a soft box or beauty dish. Try changing the orientation of the setup, and it might just have all the holding power one could ask for.

                This is a practical and utilitarian device both in studion and on location. I use it with reflectors up to 42" in size though I'm confident it can be used for larger ones. Please note that unless the boom is positioned vertically, which I sometimes do to save space, it must be used with a counterweight. It's a neat, practical piece of gear, and I'm glad I invested in this.

                    This is the most convenient way to hold a reflector. Sure beats some lazy, bad-aiming assistant or wife. The clamps that hold the reflector, etc., are very well designed and aren't likely to damage what they are holding. Don't forget to use a counterbalance or sandbag your lightstand if you put much weight on it. Photoflex makes nice, well made products. This is as good or better (from what I can tell having not used them all) than other more expensive items of its type. It can also be used to hold a smallish background. You probably need one of these if you don't have one, go on and buy it. It'll save a lot of thinking about it.

                      Been searching for an "extra hand" for holding reflectors for some time. Most of the ones I found had a lot of plastic parts and were awkward to use. Reviews that I read were very inconsistent. While on a visit to B+H, I asked for the best disc reflector holder made and was shown this Photoflex model.

                      All of the main parts are metal and the reflector itself is attached by means of two strongly sprung metal clips. It's been a very effective problem solver for my studio and I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

                        If your using photoflex reflectors this is the perfect assistant. For use with the long reflectors you will need an extra bracket for the unbracketed end to hang between two lightstands. Add this, Photoflex Heavy Duty Swivel Mount with Reversible Stud to your order and save yourself some time.

                              These are good, but I ordered a second one and it wouldn't hold its level. The first one worked fine. The arm that locks the angle the holder is at was weak in the second one and it would constantly droop down. Other than the problem with the second one, the first one works great.

                                I use it as a full reflector for beauty photos and studio work. My only complaint about it is that it is a foot too long for any of my bags. I thought it would close to the length of a tripod, but it is actually a foot longer, and I have to carry it separately.

                                    Comments about Photoflex Telescopic Litedisc Holder - 36-67" (91-170cm):

                                    I originally purchased this to hold a reflector for portraits, but I find it is sturdy enough to use as a boom for a speedlight. All the components are well made and feel long lasting. Although it claims to hold a reflector size of 36"-67" I have used it for much smaller reflectors and gobos. There are more uses than holding a reflector/flag etc. such as a boom for a lightweight head with a counterweight (there is a hole in on end to hang a sandbag from).

                                      I really like the clips on this holder. I have a Wescott stand for my collapsible background and the clips are impossibly hard to use. The Photoflex clips are great as is the really well made quality of this holder. As suggested by other raters, this really needs a sandbag for anything bigger than a small litedisc, but the hole is there to hang it from.

                                        Has good quality clamps that can hold all kinds of reflectors with covers on or off.

                                        On the down side, not sure I like that it attaches to top of a light stand spigot. Possibly one that can attach to anywhere on a lightstand with a clamp would be more flexible? But maybe that is me being overly fussy.

                                          I bought this to hang diffusers and reflectors etc. I have also used it to put a light overhead. It sets up easily. It works as described. Strong enough for my purposes

                                              Bought it for Lastolite reflectors. First time using it though I used it for a 5x7 backdrop with my manfrotto lightstands to photograph dogs and it worked perfectly!

                                              I use this holder to hold foam boards and reflectors. It is very useful when I need an assistant to hold a reflector. It is a little heavy but a great buy and priceless when I need someone to hold a reflector.

                                                It's well built. I would say that the only thing to be mindful of with this purchase, is also purchase a counter-weight with it. It's going to be necessary to hold anything on the telescopic end.
