        Comments about Impact QuickStik Telescopic Handle:

        I was using a stand and with an assistant it is very difficult to keep the soft box in place. Add the handle and your problems are solved. You also can ease the weight by using the hip belt it comes with.

          Comments about Impact QuickStik Telescopic Handle:

          I usually work alone but there are times when you have to have someone to help. Had a shoot where I needed to add light but could not do it with a lightstand. I didn't have enough room and it wouldn't have been safe.

          The Quickstik Telescopic Handle was perfetct though. Well made and reasonably priced. If you need to get light somewhere this will do it.

          Works well with the Westcott Rapid Box. Telescopes nicely and has a handy holder to help during longer photo shoots.

            I use this product to remote strobe wedding reception guests / dance party folks. It works great for eliminating shadows cast by stationary lights. I have an assistant stay about 20 degrees to my side and light overhead.

              Nice and simple way to get your softbox/flash off-camera without using a lightstand. The little pocket that comes with it is very helpful for the person holing it, too.

                I use mine with a speedlight and a small softbox. The handle is sturdy enough to handle the load without issue but I would not push it much beyond that. Still this is a neat gizmo to have and makes getting a light into just the right spot while keeping it, and your assistant, out of frame a whole lot easier. It has become a standard part of my lighting kit.

                    Solid construction. Rubber/foam handles seam relatively durable and secure. Latches seem to secure the extending shafts well. I love it. Hand it to an assistant with a remote trigger speedlite and you have a lightweight/portable off camera flash set-up.

                        Used this at a wedding last weekend. Easy to handle with a hot shoe strobe on top. It really saved the day as the reception was outdoors and much later in the day than scheduled! Just be careful in a crowd since it could whack someone.
