Comments about Impact QuickStik Telescopic Handle:

I often go on shoots myself and don't have an assistant, but this allows me to hold the softbox AND my camera at the same time. It comes with this cool harness that you strap around yourself and you insert the bottom of the pole into the harness and you can securely hold both ^_^ I enjoy my telescopic handle alot.

    ON SITE PORTABLE MONO-LIGHT HOLDER ALLOWS FOR STUDIO QUALITY LIGHT WHERE NEEDED ANYTIME. JUST HAVE AN ASSISTANT MOVE IT INTO DESIRED LOCATION AND "OFF YOU GO". IT'S ALSO QUITE EASY TO GET CREATIVE QUICKLY BY MOVING THE LIGHT AROUND.

          Good enough

          By Roman

          from NJ

          Comments about Impact QuickStik Telescopic Handle:

          The stick it sturdy enough to hold AB800 with an umbrella in moderate wind. It works out much better for me than having my assistant run around with a light stand although resting it down is a bit of an issue since it won't stand. But it does the job.

            I was using a stand and with an assistant it is very difficult to keep the soft box in place. Add the handle and your problems are solved. You also can ease the weight by using the hip belt it comes with.

              I usually work alone but there are times when you have to have someone to help. Had a shoot where I needed to add light but could not do it with a lightstand. I didn't have enough room and it wouldn't have been safe.

              The Quickstik Telescopic Handle was perfetct though. Well made and reasonably priced. If you need to get light somewhere this will do it.

              Works well with the Westcott Rapid Box. Telescopes nicely and has a handy holder to help during longer photo shoots.

                I use this product to remote strobe wedding reception guests / dance party folks. It works great for eliminating shadows cast by stationary lights. I have an assistant stay about 20 degrees to my side and light overhead.

                  Nice and simple way to get your softbox/flash off-camera without using a lightstand. The little pocket that comes with it is very helpful for the person holing it, too.

                    I use mine with a speedlight and a small softbox. The handle is sturdy enough to handle the load without issue but I would not push it much beyond that. Still this is a neat gizmo to have and makes getting a light into just the right spot while keeping it, and your assistant, out of frame a whole lot easier. It has become a standard part of my lighting kit.

                        Solid construction. Rubber/foam handles seam relatively durable and secure. Latches seem to secure the extending shafts well. I love it. Hand it to an assistant with a remote trigger speedlite and you have a lightweight/portable off camera flash set-up.

                            Used this at a wedding last weekend. Easy to handle with a hot shoe strobe on top. It really saved the day as the reception was outdoors and much later in the day than scheduled! Just be careful in a crowd since it could whack someone.
