    Comments about Impact Adjustable Twin Shoe Bracket:

    The width of the bar is about 15" long, and every part of it is metal construction except for all the knobs. The knobs are plastic, but it feels like a relatively high quality plastic. It has a removable and reversible female spigot inside to mount on a stand.
    One suggestion: If you plan to buy this for use with 2 speedlites, as I did, I suggest you get the version with 4 shoes, because it'd be nice to have something to mount your pocketwizards on, instead of dangling or taping. Just a thought I realized after the purchase.

        Comments about Impact Adjustable Twin Shoe Bracket:

        So far have used inside the Photex Softlighter II 60" with two flashes with mini ball heads so flashes could face forward. Putting that large of an umbrella on the bracket is a little heavy, but workable. Requires care, not speed in preparation. Sand bags on stand. But, I am happy with it. Works as expected.

            Well made... So worth the [$] bucks... Would not hesitate to recommend it or buy another if needed... If you need to double up your speed lights for shooting in sunny conditions you should get this one... I use it all the time!!

              Comments about Impact Adjustable Twin Shoe Bracket:

              This bracket is wide and allows me to place two speedlights (flash) at a slight angle away of each other to give me a very wide light coverage and pretty even too. Very useful for on location photoshoot when you cannot have an umbrella or any large light modifier.

                Well built. Use this with a double flash setup for large groups with a pocket wizard. Works great.

                  Comments about Impact Adjustable Twin Shoe Bracket:

                  I've gotten other single shoe brackets (two of the same kind) and both had the same plastic parts break off (impact brand actually too) and it couldn't tighten enough to hold the weight of a speed-light tilted. This metal adjustable twin bracket makes more sense. I can increase the power with two speed-lights at once or just use one head. When I tilt the head it stays locked in place. Only used a few times but I'm very happy! I hope nothing breaks.

                  Comments about Impact Adjustable Twin Shoe Bracket:

                  Build quality is quite good and solid all around. Lots of adjustability for a variety of applications. I use it primarily to mount 2 speedlites in my Apollo Orb. A solid combination, in my opinion.

                    Solid construction. Sturdy. Great to use, not only with flashes straight on, but various angles, directions, to create more artisitic lighting.

                        I used this bracket to hold two led Light setup as my main light. I started carrying a complete portable "daylight" lighting studio for all situations. Indoors or outdoors.This bracket holds my umbrella when I need it, and two lights with no problem. The bracket is not fancy, just right for any job!
