          Great extention arm, must have in a pro photographers studio or travel kit for portraits, and other applications. I use these arms to hold reflectors, and flags, as well as use these to extend the light over an area that I don't want to see in my frame. Well made arm, easy to use and good quality. No complaints about it.

          Comments about Avenger D520LB 40" Extension Arm (Black):

          Yes, this is a golden investment, especially if you have high ceilings. You'll want to take advantage of those, because the average height of a omni light stand is 8 feet which is only two feet higher the average person. This can end up making them too bright and light less of the surrounding space. So, get an arm and and make the stand taller, and then stick the light on top of that and not feel great about yourself. This is also good if you don't want to have a light stand in the shot. Put on the arm and have the light overhanging the scene. And get a sandbag while you're at it.

                          Comments about Avenger D520LB 40" Extension Arm (Black):

                          So far, this arm has been nice and study. I use it to hold an alien bee strobe with a 30"x40" softbox. The compression holds up just fine and I see no functional issues. However, there is just one little thing that bugs me. The compression head WILL NOT come off. And even if it did, you couldn't secure it to anything. A simple solution would be to buy a separate compression head, and use the attached compression head as a grip handle or whatever you may want to use it for.

                          Overall, great product. JUST KNOW THE COMPRESSION HEAD WILL NOT COME OFF.

                              Like all Avenger/Manfrotto products this arm and clamp are very well made and grip tightly. You really can't go wrong with a product from this brand.
