      Comments about 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.

                Great extention arm, must have in a pro photographers studio or travel kit for portraits, and other applications. I use these arms to hold reflectors, and flags, as well as use these to extend the light over an area that I don't want to see in my frame. Well made arm, easy to use and good quality. No complaints about it.

                  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.

                  Comments about D520LB 40" Extension Arm (Black):

                  Yes, this is a golden investment, especially if you have high ceilings. You'll want to take advantage of those, because the average height of a omni light stand is 8 feet which is only two feet higher the average person. This can end up making them too bright and light less of the surrounding space. So, get an arm and and make the stand taller, and then stick the light on top of that and not feel great about yourself. This is also good if you don't want to have a light stand in the shot. Put on the arm and have the light overhanging the scene. And get a sandbag while you're at it.

                    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.
