    Impact BG-PS440 reviews

    Pro Backdrop Support Kit (12.9' Width) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 57.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good solid set up Just used this for the first time last weekend at an event, really easy to set up and feels solid. I only raised to about 10 feet and spread it out 12 feet. Felt super solid and was really easy to adjust. The crossbar is one piece and felt strong enough ( I was using a 12x24 canvas background) the one tip I do have is consider the size of the bag as it's quite long about 62 inches due to the length of the crossbar. I had to drop the back seat to fit it in the car. The bag doesn't have a huge amount of padding, but works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Above and beyond; Pro gives more height and more versatility We use this backdrop stand for supporting 9' seamless paper, but it will support up to 12' wide backdrops. The online product description states 12.5' height, but it actually rises up to 13.5' as stated in the manual. Crossbar: The crossbar is variable length with telescoping tubes, so it doesn't limit your widths by sections like other crossbars. The thick tubes that make up the crossbar will support heavy backdrop materials very well with less sagging than any other crossbar we've used. The locking knobs on the crossbar are an added bonus not included with typical crossbars. Stands: The materials used and craftsmanship is better quality than any other that we've used. Knobs are easy to turn. Overall weight is very light while maintaining the strength needed for heavy backdrops. We love that the joints use common hardware (bolts & hex nuts) that are easily replaced if damaged during its lifetime. Also, the included reversible spigots are the major advantage for pros to use in different set ups. The spigots include 1/4 and 3/8 Threaded Male Screw Adapters for use with tripod mounts, speed lights, or any other threaded socket accessories. Our only disappointment on this kit is that a hex key (aka allen wrench) was not included to adjust the hex screws on the tension collars. These are easy to find at most local retailers, so it's not a big miss here. Overall, we love the Background Pro Support Kit. It provides the versatility and craftsmanship that you should expect from a Pro model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hanging quilts I quilt and like to take good pictures of my quilts.� I usually hang the finish quilts on the wall using pins.� A guild I used to belong to bought backdrop supports to hang quilts and I have been looking for a good backdrop support to hang my quilts to photograph. This support will support up to 38 pounds, which is right for a quilt so I bought one.� I opened it yesterday and was so pleased with how study this support is.� The crossbar is very stout and holds a quilt without bending.� The legs are very stout and provide great support when the quilt is hanging.� The nice part about this support is I don't need two people to raise the sides.� I can raise one partway then raise the other side. Really nice! I am very pleased with this support.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of METAL and SCREWS!!! I am very impressed by the amount of metal in this unit's design (as opposed to plastic). There are also screws at all of the hinges, so the unit is fixable and maintainable. The top bracket on the stands are rivetted on, but they are very solid rivets. There are also female brackets on the top of the stand, which makes it very versatile. You can even put a double male piece on the top of the background stand to make it a light stand.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the right job It is a good price for the craftmanship�(although it went on sale for $75 less the week after I bought it) but I would advise it be used for the occasional pro/semi-pro or the beginner.� For myself I need a backdrop about once a month, usually on location for a corporate headshot.� I'm not outdoors or in wind/weather so its construction is sufficient. (with a couple sandbags)� But if you have need for frequent backdrops, in outdoor situations and heavy backdrops and wear and tear I would look farther up the food chain for something more durable.� However for my needs it's well built and will last for the time I need it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I use this for location shoots. I love the fact that it extends high enough for any situation. The telescoping crossbar is perfect for those larger backdrops. It does tend to sag in the middle when it is fully extended, but, that is to be expected considering the length. Poles are sturdy and hold up nicely.The carrying case makes it easy to transport and carry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't hesitate. I have an auto-pole setup and portable it is not. This kit is just what I needed. Stands and pole are well made. Last week I used this kit to support a 10X24 heavy backdrop and they handled it easily. The case is worth mentioning too. Heavy, well constructed. Can't speak to any other portable systems, but this one works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best backdrop stands I've used. I've owned several backdrop stands over the years and this one is the best I've seen. The telescoping crossbar doesn't sag at all and the tripod stands are rock solid. I really like the fit and feel of this set. I'm going to be very happy using this. The only thing I didn't anticipate is the adapter at the top of the light stands, which allows the stands to hold the crossbar, is kind of bulky to slide the top pocket of a backdrop through. (It's only an issue if your backdrop has a top rod pocket.)
