      Needed a pair of these to hold strobes or LED lights for use with a microscope. They are attractive, of good quality, and quite strong although easily adjustable. Much better than the "Plamp" type holders for my purposes.

      This works, kind of. It is rated to hold 1.1lbs which it does but not in the position I want it to. For example, it will not hold a load in the position the picture shows it. It is of limited value to me. I should have gone with a magic arm.

      Stronger than it looks

      By mak

      from los angeles, ca

      Comments about Impact BHE-102 Heavy Duty Flex Arm for Super Clamp:

      Heavy duty is right. I bought this for use with my Alien Bee strobes and it has more than enough strength to hold the lights in any position — hanging from walls, raters, etc. (with clamp, bough separately)

      Strong arm but soft threads

      By Carm

      from Canada

      Comments about Impact BHE-102 Heavy Duty Flex Arm for Super Clamp:

      This item is strong and can hold a fair amount of weight but the thread on the end are soft. I used it once and when hand tightening it the thread sheared off. So be gentle and it will do the job

        Exactly what I need - a sturdy but malleable support for my cards etc that I need to control exposure and neutral grey conditions. Works better than the Plamp

              Bigger and heavier than I expected but happy about it. I'm using it to support a Lilliput 5" monitor with a big battery. Combined weight is easily more than the specified max of 1.1lb and the arm has no trouble supporting it.

                  Works well for speedlights and positioning gobos and reflectors. Just keep the weight capacity in mind.

                  Flexes to easily with any kind of weight at the end of it. It's good for a scrim or white card but not anything to weighty.

                    If you need to place a small strobe in just the right spot without the support moving, this is the correct tool.
