Best grip head on the market

Bye far the best grip head around, avenger have to many holes and the pin that locks the barrel is too small, and you often spend precious minutes trying to line the correct holes together, no problem with the Mathew's you only have two options and with the larger pin the barrel stays together.

Great for our smaller stands

Great way to add a lollipop head to our Junior combos when needed.

It’s Matthews

I ordered two at the same time. I noticed one was missing washers, race, bearing, and the centering washer. The other head was complete. I was surprised how loose the tolerances are on these heads compared to their 2.5” grip heads. I’m not trying to dissuade anyone from buying this head, they grip my 1.5” ears in place without any movement. Ensure you inspect the head when you receive it. I ordered the missing parts directly from Matthews without an issue instead of returning it to B and H. At least I have replacement parts for it on hand for rental purposes. They are the industry standard and the customer service is excellent.

Solid, well designed

Nothing fancy but it's worth the slight premium over the off-brands. The finish is slightly higher quality, no sharp edges and the design is just more rugged. The junior receiver is centered over the stand and the knuckle is about 1 closer as well - a small detail but important with heavier loads. Hanging a menace arm 1 closer to the stand is a lot less likely to fatigue the metal. Center grip head is obviously better for that but as a grip-saver or menace in a pinch - this is the best option.

This was our first junior pin grip head that we've come into contact with after several years of only using smaller baby pin/c-stand heads and this thing rules them all! We've gripped heavy boom arm loads over talent and this head never skipped a beat or gave any hint of slippage; I've never been so confident rigging overhead and now I don't think twice! This is a wonderful piece of kit you won't be disappointed with.
