      this tilthead works great with my lastolite ezy box hotshoe soft box kit. the impact tiltheads i own did not provide a secure and steady footing for my soft box. the provided spigots would twist under the weight of the soft box so it was very difficult to make adjustments when i was repositiong the soft box. but the lastolite tilthead was just the right match... the immovable spigot provided a good anchor for the soft box. the ratchet design of the tilt also provided more accurate positioning of the ezy box.

      Quality control problems

      I ordered two of these, and one was machined improperly such that the part that attaches to the lightstand was too small, and wouldn't fit. Be sure to check yours.

      Other than that, this tilthead works more or less as you would expect. The dial to tighten needs to be manhandled a bit if you are attaching something heavy like a large softbox.

        Comments about Lastolite Tilthead with Spigot:

        Extremely well-made tilthead. Even the ratchet adjuster wheel is cast aluminum. The spigot locking screw is spring-loaded to keep it from vibrating loose, and the spigot is fairly hard, so it should last a long time. Unconditionally impressed with this thing, and I suspect I'll still be using it in a decade.

          Only use it with the Impact quickbox because it doesn't tilt on its own.
          This is the solution for the problem!

            Comments about Lastolite Tilthead with Spigot:

            I recently purchased an exspensive soft light flash. This tilthead with spigot allows me to properly adjust the soft box as my key light. The weight of the soft box required an adjustable turdy support device. This tilthead with spigot met my needs perfectly.

                            This is the 3rd one I bought, so that should show you how much I like it. Strong, secure, and easy to use. I use them withumbrella's, softboxes, and octaboxes. I also own a few manfrotto siltheads, but prefer the Lastolites for there smaller size, and lighter weight.
