The adjustable Deluxe Varipole Support System (Pair) from Impact offers two Varipoles to create a functional studio backdrop and grip system. The Varipole easily and quickly mounts between floor and ceiling providing stable support for backdrops, reflectors, lights and grip accessories. With a strong tension mechanism and locking system, the Varipole is secured by its own force of pressure between solid walls or floors and ceilings. Adjustable between 6'11" (2.1 m) and 12'1" (3.7 m), the Deluxe Varipole is capable of turning most rooms into a photo studio without damage to walls or ceilings. The Varipole is available in black powder or brushed aluminum silver finishes.

This Varipole set comes with two Varipoles of the same color at a budget-friendly price and will allow you more capability and load bearing strength. Purchase a cross-bar to hang a complex lighting set-up for portraiture or even stage lighting.

          It's just a great pair of autopoles. Better priced then Manfrotto but there's really no difference.

                  Very simple to use, great support. I had a long debate between these and the Man's (including the updated ones), and I'm very glad I saved the money. Very nice handle, very nice locks.

                        I got these 4 months ago and I'm very pleased with my purchase. This system beats stands big time (for spaces it's meant to be used.) It's faster to setup and takes no space. Love it.

                            Varipoles are a brilliant invention and these are quality items. I bought them to last me years and years. Get an extra pair of foot covers so you don't mess up someone's ceiling!!

                              Comments about Impact Deluxe Varipole Support System - Black (Pair):

                              I purchased the Varipole Support System to save some space in the home-studio. I didn't realize the huge time savings and how strong they would be in comparison to the free-standing background stand I've been using for years.

                              Anyone who works alone knows how difficult it can be after you setup your stands. You feed the crossbar through your background material or core, put the holes through the studs then start slowly raising your stands, a little at a time, going back and forth until you get your height adjusted. Then you sandbag the heck out of them so they don't fall. When you're finished, your background could still be closer to the wall and the legs still get in the way a bit - especially if you're using umbrellas to light the background.

                              Varipoles go up in seconds. You can even mark the poles for positioning your super clamps, so that only takes seconds as well. The Varidrive set is quickly mounted to your core and you're ready to hang your background in only a few minutes! The varipole is much thicker than any stand I own, making it more sturdy, not to mention the space savings... you can mount them practically right against the wall - and no legs getting in the way!

                              I have children and often photograph them in the home-studio. I've had two occasions already where I or one of my children have accidentally bumped into one of the poles... it didn't budge! Very strong system. In addition, I have been experimenting with attaching a monolight directly to the poles holding the seamless paper and I think I'm really onto something great here! Another time and space saver that I will definitely benefit from on almost every shoot!

                              I am actually planning on purchasing a second pair of varipoles to use instead of traditional light stands because they work so well! I am very pleased with my purchase... in comparison to traditional light stands, they are at about the same price point as most "heavy-duty" stands, and are still much stronger. I would highly recommend this product.

                                Bought this for a temporary location I will be at for the next couple months.

                                I'll mainly be using this for business portraits in my apartment with wood floors.

                                Haven't used it yet, but set up was straight forward and fairly quick.

                                Doesn't take up much space and they are well built.

                                I would purchase these again if I had to.
