    I have the heavy duty flex arm and super clamp mounted on a power wheelchair. I no longer have the upper body strength to support a camera and rely on a remote shutter for my point and shoot camera. Reasonably priced and great for adaptive photography purposes.

    The Manfrotto 237HD Heavy Duty Flex Arm holds items in place well, as long as they are not too heavy. My Sunpak 622 is 936g and it was too much for this arm to hold in place. At 680g of its own weight plus the superclamp at 453g I find the combination to be a bit heavy to carry around to locations, but I will pack them anyway if I anticipate their use. For holding heavier loads the magic arm may have a better weight to load capacity ratio.

    Comments about Manfrotto 237HD Heavy-Duty Flex Arm - for Super Clamp:

    I bought this to go with my Manfrotto 196 for Macro shots.
    Sturdy enough for a 430 Canon flash holds it in place pretty well. Found it works really nicely for portrait shots as well with a diffuser over the flash head.....Camera is a 7D which will fire the 430 remotely. I am still thinking of new ways to use this very flexible tool.

    Comments about Manfrotto 237HD Heavy-Duty Flex Arm - for Super Clamp:

    As other reviewers have stated it is heavy for its size. It is stiff but flexible. It will hold a flash and umbrella and clamp but I wouldn't load it up with anything else. It works well for holding things that weigh less than a pound or two but nothing heavy. It works ok for what I need but it would never hold a camera and because it wasn't designed to hold something heavy. P.S. Also not mentioned, you do need a male to male stud to attach it to a tripod. I had to have a salesman find that info as it was not listed anywhere that I could find on bhphoto or on Manfrotto's site.

    Aptly Named

    By R. Smith

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Manfrotto 237HD Heavy-Duty Flex Arm - for Super Clamp:

    This clamp is...HEAVY DUTY. It's not like a flimsy goose neck for a microphone stand. It takes some effort to reposition it, and it stays where you put it. It's just the right tool when you need a little more flexibility (no pun intended) in your set up.

      When I ordered this It was not with the HD behind it but that is what I received, my fault. It is to heavy and hard to bend for my needs, I ordered another light weight and should be here today. There is another standard #237 that is what I saw when ordering, but went with the lighter one.

      I use this with a super clamp or two for radio slaves, gobos, or anything that need secure but flexible mounting. It's kind of heavy, but I still carry 3 of them on all setup shoots.

        The arms on the flex arm are long so there's plenty of room for adjusting the arms to meet your needs. The arms don't flex much under weight as adverstised.

            This is a versatile and useful bendable extension that can be used for small cameras, lights, microphones and more. Bascially I got this to supplement my assortment of aluminum extension rods that I use for various devices including action cameras and more. The advantage of this flexible rod is that it can be "bent" to position the accessory where it needs to be and also that it will "give" should an impact result whereas a rigid aluminum rod would not.It's fairly rigid and heavy but not too much so.I'll be using this thing for many years for all sorts of odd tasks. It's a good thing to have in your accessory aresenal.

                        I first bought the light weight model, but it sagged under just a little weight. This arm is what I needed. Who cares about a lighter weight arm that won't hold in position. Sweet!

                            It's great, but the strength isn't what the build feels like. It's for lighter cameras, and holding Road rags flags that are light, but are limited to the actual placement. Otherwise its a very versatile piece for pieces 5lbs and under.

                              I bought two of these for, insert laugh here, a motorcycle mount using superclamps. The intent was to shoot other bikes as they are behind me using the flex-arm to hold small soft boxes.

                              This worked great. They can hold a lot of weight without bending. Although I have not used them in a studio, I think they're definitely worth the money, and provide great flexibility even with large soft boxes.

                                  Wanted to use this to hold the 30in Lastolite Trigrip, but it doesn't work very well for this purpose. It would probably work well to hold lighter or less bulky items... maybe my Canon speed light, but there are better tools for this. This would be handy in only very specific circumstances.

                                    Comments about Manfrotto 237HD Heavy-Duty Flex Arm - for Super Clamp:

                                    I've read a lot of good reviews about Manfrotto super clamps and flex arms over the past months. I'm glad I finally decided to buy a set. This is an extremely useful tool to have in a photo studio. I currently use mine as a flag holder, attached to a muslin clamp and light stand. It's really worth every penny.

                                      This worked out great. It works very well with the clamp. Everyone should have one.

                                      Comments about Manfrotto 237HD Heavy-Duty Flex Arm - for Super Clamp:

                                      I continue to be impressed with Manfrotto products. They are consistently well made and packaged. This flexible steel arm is exactly as advertised. I use it to hold a light fixture for some macro work, and it does the job well. I was hoping to use it as a camera mount, but it will not support even the lightest of my kit - a Canon T3i. But the camera exceeds the stated weight capacity of 1.10 lbs, so I can't blame Manfrotto. The company's Superclamp, Magic Arm system is just good stuff: solid, durable, well designed and well manufactured. B&H does it again - good stuff at a great price: what's not to like?
