          Comments about Chimera Single Axis Stand Adapter:

          Due to a wedding gig, i required a Wescott 7 feet umbrella to take group shots. The normal flash and umbrella mounting could support the weight of it. So I knew B&H would offer me something that would do the job. I read from another review that this Chimera single axis stand would do the job. So purchased 2 units. Came shortly in 2 days. I found that one of the parts that was supposed to in was not there in one of the unit. Sent email regarding the matter and without hesitation B&H responded and sent the part. I am extremely happy, B&H you got yourself a loyal customer now! Cheers!

              I use this adapter to connect my Chimera Super Pro Plus Softbox to a boom stand. Rock solid is what I need and what this adapter delivers.

                This thing is built like a tank. What stand adapter is more robust or heavy duty than this one? And for the price? I love it. A little heavy but worth the extra few ounces and extra few dollars.

                  I have a 30"x30" softbox, and the adapter I had before wasn't up to the weight. This one handles it without even blinking. It's heavier than the other one, but I don't mind that; if it weren't, it probably wouldn't be stronger.

                    Comments about Chimera Single Axis Stand Adapter:

                    The Chimera Single Axis Stand Adapter is truely professional grade at a price not much higher than the Asian plastic and pot metal adapters so widely in use. I have no doubt my adapters will be around and functioning decades after I am gone.

                    After purchasing my first, I was totally convinced on how well engineered and constructed the Chimera adapers are. I now always have several of both the single and double adapters in my kit when I am lighting. I totally trust them to easily handle my larger fixtures, monolites and expensive Quantum strobes even with heavy light modifiers attached.

                        Comments about Chimera Single Axis Stand Adapter:

                        I was absolutely stunned at the quality of this product in terms of its engineering, ease of use and functionality. It puts every similar piece I've seen and used to shame.

                        I needed a rather heavy duty unit to directly mount a speed ring for an extra large (54"x72"x32") softbox, hanging an Einstein strobe off of the speed ring. The softbox generates far more leverage than the strobe, and I was not confident that the stobe's speedring mount could handle the weight of that softbox.

                        After taking one look at this adapter following its delivery, I was confident that this unit provides a significant strength safety factor, giving me a high level of comfort. It gives me the flexibility to easily aim the light, and the confidence that it will stay put.

                        As an rather picky engineer myself, it just feels good to use, it's beautifully made, and the mechanical advantages engineered into its design are immediately evident.

                              I use this to mount a small strobe and an umbrella on a small light stand. It works great, is well made but I should probably update this review after I've used it for about 10 years or so, assuming I'm still in photography. I may take up another career, probably something in radio because my face is pretty hideous. It actually looks like this clamp, if you can believe it.
