        Quality product. Nice and compact.
        Perfect for my boon.
        Doubles as a compact lighter weight for folding stands that have small light modifiers.

          Comments about Manfrotto 023 Counter Balance Weight - 10 lbs:

          On a boom. I didn't know how much of a difference this would make. So I was " not " in a rush to get it. I considered a much cheaper counter weight bag until I spoke with a salesperson. He pointed out the durability and the fact that "this" can easily be moved up or down the boom accordingly whereas a bag remains at the end of the boom only.

          Immediately I felt the difference on the boom when using a softbox fully extended. I can't believe I've gone so long without it. Great product, constructed very well and a very essential piece of gear.

            This weight made life a whole lot easier! You can slide it up or down for better counter balance! It is small and compact unlike sand bags which are easy to snag a cord on or worse knock into and the light start teetering!

            WARNING!!! Always unattach counter weight before taking your light off the boom otherwise the c stand may fall over and break something on it's way down! (trust me - I have already made this mistake once! haha you live and you learn!)

                Great and compact counterweight. I use it with the manfrotto boom arm and works wonderfully to balance heavier lighting rigs.

                      I use these on Manfrotto Combi boom stands. They are much more compact that sand/weight bags and can be moved along the boom to change the pivot point without having to extend or contract the boom arm.

                        I was looking for something to replace the hanging sand bags for my boom arms. I ended up getting three of the 10 lbs Manfrotto 023 Counter Balance Weights. They work great, just what I needed. I would buy them again.

                              The plate likes to get stuck once in a while, no big deal, other than that it works great! The paint is already chipping with very little use.
