Arrived Broken

This is my first time purchasing an Impact product, and I'm hoping their support (or B&H support) will help resolve this. One of the stands in this kit arrived with the Center Column Knob sheered off. I needed this setup for a shoot this weekend. I'm sure I'll figure something out, but I was really counting on this. I hope this is a one-off defect and not a more pervasive issue with Impact's build quality or quality control. Will update as I seek a resolution.

Exactly What I Needed

Okay, first let me state that I am not a professional photographer. I do not have a real studio. However, I like to shoot time-lapse of blooming cut flowers, candles burning, macro shooting, and lots of other stuff. I do this in a spare bedroom with one wall of windows facing the sunny west. I do have draw drapes but light still comes in and changes appreciably during the day which causes problems with any time-lapse. I didn't want to put up a curtain rod and blackout curtains. I thought the Impact Pro Backdrop would work fine and I was right. Plus I wanted something portable - not that I am going to shoot in the wild outdoors but this opens up the possibility of shooting in other rooms, out on the deck, etc. Coupled with a couple of very dark sheets I was able to block the light quite well. Truth be told, it is more than I need right now but who knows what this photography hobby will grow into. The IPBSK came packaged very well. Inside of one hour I had it up and functioning and that includes unpacking and later breaking down the boxes. The instructions are great but really not necessary as assembly is quite intuitive. It is easy to work with. Very sturdy. I can set it up by myself, get it to the proper height, hang the sheets with a handful of clamps and I'm on my way. The light stands are easy to collapse and are really of high quality. The crossbar is also very easy to collapse and is also of high quality. All of the tightening knobs are, in my opinion, pro quality. I'm sure as my photography progresses I will be hanging paper rolls (maybe green screen) on the cross bar and I am confident it will take the weight with ease. Everything fit in the included carry bag. All in all, I am very pleased. Great product and great service from B+H! Thanks for reading.

Love this stand.

I'm happy with this background stand, it's of the heft and quality I was hoping for. I'd still prefer something even more heavy duty for a 12 foot roll of paper but this still worked fine with the use of heavy handbags. I've had a hard time finding anything more heavy duty than this, especially at this price point.

Better quality than I even expected!

I love everything about this backdrop support, but the main thing is the telescoping rod. It helps to make it very versatile and custom to your situation.

do you know the diameter of the crossbar?
Asked by: Anonymous
The diameter of the crossbar itself is 32 mm (1 1/4 inch). The end caps are 38 mm (1 1/2 inch) without the screws. With the screws in open position, they are about 65 mm (2 1/2 inch), but taking off one screw to slide the background in is not much of a problem

I don't Know, but you can use some similar, like the Impact Heavy-Duty Air-Cushioned Light Stand (Black, 9.5') it's work for me. I used to expand my background also.

question

What Light Stands (part #) come in this kit so I can see the Specs?
Asked by: Mark
Impact makes a "Pro" version light stand...I have this item and am considering getting another one just for the stands as they are super beefy and pretty much the same footprint (stand legs) as the other stands and I'll have an extra crossbar to boot!

Hi, actually I asked this question. I did some quick research and the diameter of the legs are in fact 22mm. So I would have to say "Yes" it will accept the wheel kit
