      Comments about Avenger D520L 40" Extension Arm (Chrome-plated):

      I use this product when I need to work under my lights without a light stand in the way. It fits my lights perfectly. (All of my lights are from Alien Bees.) Construction is solid, and so far I've had no issues.

        A very safe tool to have when you want to extend photographic instruments on an Avenger light stand. I like to have controll and maneuverability with my strobe lights and I can acheive that with the extension arm.

          Great for flags reflectors and such. Very sturdy. I use it on my C stand. I am not so sure this is a strong replacement for an actual boom.

              Not only is it good for using flags and reflectors, but used as a pair they can be much more useful than frames provided with other gear. I got them to attach speedlights to, but I'm finding more uses than I'd expected.

                This extension arm has been very useful for the past year. It has always done exactly what it is supposed to do. Be aware that the head and the arm do not seperate. It can be hard to store.

                        I got this extension arm to add another option to my mini-booms. It allows me to put a variety of lights, modifyers and photo gear out away from the light stand. Sometimes you don't need a full blown boom and this arm offers that alternative. The strength and durability of the arm and grip head is a nice addition. The D200 Grip head along with a 6" or longer pin are needed to properly attach lights to the arm.

                          This is a great product for those hard to light areas. Put beauty light on it and can light hair or get perfect portraits.

                                  The Avenger extension arm is ideal for adding a grip, scrim, reflector, etc. when you don't want to pay an assistant for standing around and holding something. This goes well with the Avenger C-stand. A must-have.

                                    Having used C-stands for over two decades, I know that Avenger always deliver. The only reason for my purchase of additional arms were that over time, some have gone missing... I guess whoever has my old arms now know how great they are!

                                    No negatives... really!

                                      The grip arm is solid. I have used it on my Avenger C stand for a hair light for a documentary. Well made grip the stand like Hercules !!

                                        Does the trick to get a light down low.
