    Photoflex Swivel Mount reviews

    Heavy Duty Swivel Mount with Reversible Stud is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Performer I bought this to mount a SB-800. It's short enough not to offset the flash from the umbrella center. I has an extra long lever which gives lots of leverage to tighten the mounted umbrella very fast. Once in place, there's no slipping. The other knobs are just plastic, but, they are pretty solid, nothing feels cheap. This thing is built to last. I'm not a fan of the all-in-one hot/cold shoe swivel with time consuming and less secure flash screw locks. For the Nikon Strobist, this unit provides a better alternative just by attaching a AS-10/AS-19 or similar shoe mounts with a contact plate locking hole.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent swivel mount for the $$$$ After reading the review for the cheaper photoflex swivel mount. I decided to try this one. This is my first swivel mount I ever bought so I can't compare it to any others. I'm very pleased with it for the price. I was looking at some higher priced one's but decided to get this one since I also recently bought photoflex light stands & umbrellas.I used my Nikon SB - 800 speedflash on this mount. The swivel mount comes with a reversible 1/4 - 3/8 threaded stud. What I did was use the AS-19 stand that came with my SB - 800 speedlight. Just screw the 1/4 stud that came with the mount into the AS-19 stand and then attach the Nikon speedlight. It works perfect!!Since I liked the first one I received, I'm going to order a second one as soon as I'm done writing this review! Problems Encountered: None so far... Items I Recommend: Photoflex umbrella kit...Item # PHULSK

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good solid mount Well-built solid mount, and easy to use adjustment screws. All works very well. The only problem I had was that the angle of the umbrella mount didn't work too well with my particular flash. Landed up meaning that the flash was aimed at the top half of the umbrella. I switched to the Bogen version which was aligned a lot better for my purposes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made! I've spent a lot of money on LED lights to use for network news sit-down interviews. I needed something strong and reliable, easy to use, to give me the direction control I wanted when mounting my LED lights from C-stands when the lights are fllown/hanging over the heads of talent and interview subject. I can't afford to spend money on good lights, then trust them to a flimsy cheap piece of equipment. These are so well made and priced right. Don't save a buck buying something cheaper, then have and accident of damage equipment because you decided to think penny wise and pound foolish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! These mounts are worth the extra cost over the plastic ones. It holds rock solid with no give, even with a large softbox mounted in it. The holes in the ends are round, rather than the teardrop shape I've seen in some others, which means there's less give. The brake works very well and holds quite tight. I almost hope our other plastic mounts give out soon so we can replace them with more of these. They are a great buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty and Metal I've always been pleased with Photoflex's products, and it continues with this heavy swivel mount. I actually bought this item by accident because I didn't read the description, but I'm not going to return it. The heavy duty swivel is heftier than Photoflex's plastic umbrella swivel. It's metal construction and tighter locking screws and joints give it a high degree of durability, stability, and versatility. The metal construction means it can take a beating. Drops and stomps, you'll still have a swivel. The heavy duty isn't just a name it, locked in it will assuredly hold your monobloc. Although it is much heavier than the plastic swivel, this version is more versatile because you can mount small lights/accessories as well as large lights/accessories with confidence. These are great to have around if your lighting set up is a mix of large and small flash.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tough Stuff Very sturdy, solid swivel. Should last a long time. All metal parts. Not a lightweight. However, the umbrella shaft tunnel isn't angled well. For small umbrellas, Speedlights will miss half the umbrella. A Manfrotto 026 works better with umbrellas.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, this one will last! Holds a double bracket with two vivitar 285s and an umbrella. Don't buy the cheap plastic ones!
