        Comments about Impact Background Paper Varidrive Set with Red Chain and Weight:

        These are well constructed and have stood up to the rigors of a busy studio without any problems. The chain feels flimsier than my metal set (obviously!) but I don't see it being a problem - particularly at the price!

              I did not know what to expect but the drives are better made than I expected. Only issue I had was that fitting them in the triple hooks that came with the set is a bit tight. B&H and Impact told me it will be better after some use and wear and tear.

                  I have three of these and they work great. I really like the roll brake on the side.

                    Easy to use and mount to the paper tube rolls. I have the savage rolls and found them very easy to use. Take your time and the results are great.

                      I like the ease of not having to set up new paper every time I want a change. I enjoy the speed and ease of this system. I have three of these racks in my studio. These are identical to the ones I bought from another store, but at a much, much lower price.

                        I bought a set along with a wall hanger to put up in the studio. It's convenient for changing backgrounds and is a space saver over the portable background stands I have been using.

                            I love it! Took just maybe 20 minutes to install. I have a 12x12 studio so this is a must. Really gave me the extra space i need.

                                Comments about Impact Background Paper Varidrive Set with Red Chain and Weight:

                                I'm currently using three of these impact varidrive chains for cored paper measuring around 20 feet long (9' wide). The rolls aren't heavy and these are providing excellent results so far. These are made well and I don't foresee these breaking any time soon. I do plan on adding a vinyl backdrop down the road at which point I'll be wise to invest in a metal chain instead.

                                I've also attached a 20 foot long muslin (9' wide) to a core and rolled it up no problem with these plastic chains. If a chain happens to break I have PLENTY of extra chain length to replace it with as I'm using less than half of it in a room with 8' foot ceilings.

                                I would buy these again at this great price!
