Questions? Ask our experts:

The Photoflex ProDuty BackDrop Support Kit includes a BackDrop Pole, two 2320Y LiteStands, and a rugged carry bag to hold the whole kit.

The BackDrop Pole is a single-unit with telescoping sections that constructs easily with a twist and pull motion to extend each section and another twist to lock in place. The Pole stores collapsed at 4' 7" and extends to 12.5'.

Each 2320Y LiteStand extends to 12' high. The extra height afforded with these stands means you can shoot your model from a low angle without seeing the top of the backdrop in your shot. These are exceptionally sturdy stands with a maximum load rating of 40 pounds. The "flip-top" design of the brass post adds versatility for multiple uses in your studio. The kit weighs 17 lbs.

    This system was better than I expected! I was tired of my old photek system sagging in the middle, and the cheesy support stands slipping down do to the "self loosening" lock mechanisms.

    This Photoflex system is NOTHING like the Photek. First off the stands are plenty sturdy and actually double as light stands more than capable of holding a flash head and large soft box. The locking mechanisms are solid and secure, and these stands go much higher than I will ever need! The crossbar is a very thick, telescoping rod, so no more assembling pre-sized lengths, just slide in or out to your exact width needed. The ends have wing nut locks to hold tight onto the stands. I use this to hang a custom EEFX green screen backdrop that has to be hung on 12 feet of crossbar. This Photoflex system has zero droop of the crossbar at 12 feet with this 10x12 foam backed backdrop hanging from it.

    Telescoping crossbar is about 6” longer than the multi-piece systems when fully collapsed, but it all fits in the excellent carrying bag, not even close to being a deal breaker for me.

    I would highly recommend this system as it has far exceeded my expectations.

    I unpacked my new back ground support system and it was out of the box less than an hour when one of the light stands snapped off at the top when the cross bar, with a new roll of 107" paper fell. The cross bar connectors are too shallow to rely upon. To top it off, I had to purchase a new stand myself. I was disappointed the company didn't make it right.

    Comments about Photoflex Pro-Duty Backdrop Support Kit (12.5' Width):

    I use the Pro-Duty Support Kit for holding a roll of seamless for table-top photography. It is light weight but strong and well constructed. It will also support a canvas backdrop and even a 12' seamless roll. The knobs and threads are heavy duty and should last many years. And if you aren't using the cross bar, the stands can be used as heavy duty light stands. This kit is well worth the money as an investment for your studio or location shooting needs.

      Comments about Photoflex Pro-Duty Backdrop Support Kit (12.5' Width):

      I shoot training videos in the back corner of a warehouse and have a shoestring budget. 2 years ago, I bought a cheap backdrop stand kit to hold 12-foot seamless rolls. The cheap kit worked just OK, but always seemed on the verge of buckling. I recently bought a 12-foot muslin pocketed drape to give backgrounds a little texture, and that's when I knew I needed a better backdrop kit since I would be swapping more often between the drape and the seamless. This Photoflex kit fills the bill very nicely. Strong LiteStands and the Pole sags very very little with the weight of the drape. I wish I'd popped for this Pro-Duty kit in the first place, instead of buying the cheaper one. The The carry bag is rugged, too.

          haven't used it yet but it looks good although it came a little dented and scratched (mainly the crossbar) but I just exchanged it. besides that it is heavy duty it is telescopic giving you the ability to adjust to whatever size drop or paper you are dealing with, up to 12.5 feet. just note that your drops should have large enough a pocket to slip in to. (or you will be hanging it with clamps)

          I've had mine for about 5 years. And in those years I've done more outdoor shoots that indoor shoots. Had the number of both been the same, these stands would have given up a long time ago. They've been seeing more use lately and I've had the tubing start to cave in causing the stands to get stuck in the "on" position. I've replaced these stands with impact C-stands and I use the crossbar from the Photoflex kit. So all in all, for me, they've been good, but I'm glad I've found a better stand for this specific use.

              I was using a much lower quality backdrop support system and decided to invest in a professional quality product. The Photoflex is well built and the telescopic cross bar makes setup and take down even faster. Well made and comes with a nice carrying case.

                In the past few years I've used a beginners backdrop stand (BDS) and spent I think about $ bucks for it or so. Very flimsy, a hassle to setup, had 4 sections that interlocked to make the top bar and bowed a lot in the center. You get what you pay for. Now that my business has grown & knowing that I needed a much better BDS and searching all over the place & reading reviews, I finally decided on this unit and it didn't disappoint. Pro-Duty Indeed! Stands are large and VERY sturdy. Telescopic bar across the top makes setup up very fast and you can hang material or roll on it with very minimal sag. I use this with 12' x 20' material green screen, 12' x 12' black cloth & 10' rolls of super white paper for video and photography work. Comes with a really good, durable soft case. This my friends is a really good buy and it will be the last one you buy. Unless of course you exercise with it doing chin ups.

                The metal housing for several of the tightening screws on the stands came loose after a few uses. Others screws on the stands stripped after a while as well. This made the stands unstable and unsafe to operate. I will be replacing the stands with higher quality one of a different brand. The support bar is still in good shape and the bag is very handy. I suppose you get what you pay for.

                  The stands are better quality than I expected and can support a lot of weight. I like how the entire system can fit in the supplied bag for traveling. The support bar is good but not great. It naturally sags due too the bars not fitting tight. It does hold 109" paper well but only because the paper has a core. My feeling is that the paper would sag if left on the stand for a long period of time. None the less, this is a good product.

                        The stand was easy to setup and place the backdrop. The only concern was the tripod stand width on the outside posed a trip hazard for guest walking near the outside. Overall still a great backdrop stand.

                              So glad that I purchased this backdrop stand kit, it is very rugged and also comes with a carry bag that makes it easy to travel with. You also can use as a light stand when not using it as a background stand.
