      Comments about Giottos Background Support System:

      I have had a number of these kits over the years and too many are made with weak stands that do not support heavier backgrounds. The Giotto air-cushioned stands are great as they will not come crashing down if loose- or when you are working alone and needed to move from one side to the other. The kit bag is a great bonus and the three-piece cross-bar is easy to put together and is strong.

        Comments about Giottos Background Support System:

        I use it to hold a paper roll, 54". Can also accomodate a 107" roll of paper. I use this in my studio for the most part. Other times I use it on a location shot. Becareful on sights that are not indoors, wind will easily blow it over. Also be very careful with the top tighteners. Over tightening them will cause the screw to POP out, and no longer allow you to tighten down the cross bar to the top. So right now...I'm looking to replace the top attachments.

        Better stands for the money.

        By Howard

        from USA, MD

        Comments about Giottos Background Support System:

        I found the stands themselves didn't lock in to place and would slip down easily, but my biggest disappointment was the cross bar, which screwed together with a fairly small lag screw and sagged at the joint very easily. Even right after screwing it together, the cross bar wasn't even close to straight.I opted for the new Photoflex ProDuty Backdrop kit to be much sturdier for esentially the same money. I miss the air cushioned stands, but that isn't the most important point for me.Currently B&H doesn't carry the Photoflex kit, but hopefully they will soon.

        Problems Encountered: Stands don't lock.Cross bar very weak at joint.
