    Comments about Manfrotto Complete AutoPole Expan Kit - Black:

    I had been using a simple background stand system for my seamless paper and I was having issues with the paper rolling back up loose and/or unevenly so it stuck out too much on one side. Not to mention it was a PITA to set it up and take it down, especially by myself. I got this system and although it is a bit expensive its price is nothing compared to how easily and effectIvey it works. Setup is very easy even by myself with a 2+ meter seamless roll (of course a second person does help). Within less than a minute I could unroll and reroll my seamless that was all messed up with zero problems! The looseness and unevenness is gone! On top of that I'll be able to switch between different rolls in no time during a shoot. As a counterweight I'm just using a few A clamps and it works no problem. Taking the system down is even easier so for a non permanent studio it's ideal. I highly recommend this system, it made seamless a whole lot less stressful.

    Comments about Manfrotto Complete AutoPole Expan Kit - Black:

    This was a difficult system to set up, because it came with no instructions and a lot of parts. But once set up, it works fine. Until the cheap plastic chain breaks, which it will. The chain that comes with it is very weak and breaks often. Keep a ladder nearby, because you'll be needing it! They do have an aftermarket chain that is supposedly stronger. For the price of this system, it should have been included.
