    Varos Pro S Multi-Function Flash Shoe Umbrella Holder is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice, substantial bracket I really like these. Very substantial, no plastic here. Solid lock on the adjustable joint. Umbrella slot is angled, like it should be, to align with flash head. Only nit is the umbrella clamp is not shaped to firmly hold the smallest shaft umbrellas, otherwise it would be 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Very surprised as to how solid yet not heavy as I thought it would be being constructed from lite alloy but strong and well designed..Like the tilting mechanism which locks into place very firmly and the same for the cold shoe which holds my Nikon SB700 Speedlight very securely and also holds my Westcott 45" umbrella extremely well with its slight tilting design to allow speed light to centre on umbrella..Very happy with this purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for this type of equipment for their light stand at this price couldn't go wrong!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid well thought out bracket. I bought this as an upgrade to the entry level mounts I had been using. I now have some bare bulb 360 W/S speedlights and they weigh 3 times what my SB910s weigh, needed something stronger to hold them. This is well made and solid, the umbrella shaft clamp holds all my different shaft sizes and is much less likely to damage them. Everything on it has a purpose, the only thing I may not use is the carabineer they included to secure it. Then again I have avoided shooting with a modifier outdoors due to stability problems, maybe this will open up some possibilities for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trustworthy Holder I have a couple of their larger size for my main lights. This is is used for� Fill lights and such. The units are all metal and� well made designed.� The drilled angled and elliptical umbrella hole helps a great deal in holding various sized umbrella stems and I have never crushed a single one. I have no problem trusting my equipment to these great holders.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Sturdy I've only used them a couple of times since I bought them but they appear to be very sturdy. The cold shoe holds the flash firmly and doesn't appear that it will let it the flash fall. The knobs are large enough to be easily turned and tightened.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good support This is the best Multi-Function Flash Shoe Umbrella Holder I've used to date. My only complaint is you can't mount this to a light stand with a post without additional hardware thus the 4-star rating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly It does what a swivel is supposed to do. The cold shoe can be rotated, raised and lowered. I'm not sure what the carabiner is for, but it's there if I ever need to hang something from a light stand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEEFY! Well built and an excellent value for the money. I only use it for shoe mount flashes, but I can see it used for a lot more when the situation arises
