            I put my vinyl backdrop on it, and it works well so far. I didn't regret to buy it.

            Non-cored cloth is hard to attach and keep straight. Manfrotto should include a snap over cover to affix the material to the core the same as they have on the P/N 0622 Background Paper Counterweight. Without something to hold the material firmly the cloth rolls-up un even and wrinkles which defeats the purpose of the roll system. I plan on trying a piece of 2" PVC pipe that is slotted to slip over the Alu-Core and hold the cloth.

                We need a cross support pole that was strong and also could be made smaller to be portable. This fits the bill.

                Does not fit tight where the poles join.
                Could have a better way to join the two poles.

                Working with 12' cores.

                      The 12' cores tend to sag in the middle which causes wrinkles in muslins. There is a PVC pipe that you can slip over the cores that greatly helps.Small countersunk screws keep the pipe from slipping.
