Matthews B159021 overview

  • 1Description

To keep weight to a minimum and yet get maximum strength, all MSE Solid Frames are made of 3/8" thin wall tubing. The mounting pin is solid rod.

The 48" x 48" frames are made with two "ears" at the bottom to protect fabric when frames are slid in and out of their storage boxes or can be used as a point to tie off when used in certain conditions.

Solid Frames are black powder coated to minimize reflections.

Matthews B159021 reviews

Solid Frame Scrim - 48x48" - Black 1/4 Stop Silk is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Careful before you buy! This a good solid product from Matthews, but be careful before you buy it. Know that this frame is BIG and the silk and frame DO NOT collapse or get smaller. I called B&H before I ordered this because I wanted to know if the silk could come off (I knew the frame was solid), and they told me it would. But it does not come off!Also, if you are looking for something to make a good diffuser of your light, this isn't for you. This is for very minor adjustments to diffusion. You will still have harsh shadows even if you put this over your actor.Thirdly, this isn't really portable. Unless you have like a grip truck, I wouldn't recommend this. I'd highly recommend the Matthews Roadrags. This is super nice because it is collapsable into two pieces and the silk can be taken off for protection. You pay more money, but I think it's worth it in the long run, especially if you don't have a big trailer to haul your gear around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as expected i have no issues with this product. remember it's 4ftx 4ft so if you don't have room for it, then get something that collapses.
