Impact BG-CB13B Reviews
stronger in the middle
I have several rods that are two pieces that connect in the middle. They all sag in the middle under the weight of a large cloth backdrop. This rod is one piece so it's stronger in the middle with very little sag. It is about 56 inches when compacted compared to 42 inches for my other rods when taken apart and compacted.
Next level pole!
Much higher quality pole than the ones you get from Amazon, and goes out to 12 feet! Use this with two Varipoles for sure. Life changing.
Great Backdrop Support
I first purchased one of these bars about a year ago after using a bunch of cheap equipment for a really long time and finding it lacking. I need a long support, most of my backdrops are at least 10-feet in width, and usually 10-feet or more in length. These bars are a lifesaver, both in the studio and on the road. It is so much easier using them and they actually do a really great job supporting the backdrop without warping in the middle. There is a small dip, but nothing extreme, and I have been known to leave these fully extended with a backdrop for weeks on end. I liked the first one so much that I purchased a second just recently. In my photos you can see a sample of the two bars holding backdrops. The way the ends are designed allow for many types of mounting. They also allow for sliding through smaller backdrop support holes. You can fit these things on hooks, bars, rope, and more, not just a typical stand. Truly a heavy duty piece of equipment.
Quality and Value
Well made, works as described, good value at price point, first Impact product I've purchased, impressed. Have experience with high end brand equipment to compare.
Crossbar is as described - virtually no sagging with my 8x10 mulin.
I have two of these cross bars and they are a fantastic addition to the studio. I mount them on the Impact Wall Plate with 90-Degree Baby Pins and together they make a very flexible backdrops solution.
Does exactly what its supposed to do. Perfect
Best crossbar ever
Got this crossbar for my home studio, it's stronger than any other one I've used and it collapses small for safe storage.
