    Avenger A4041B reviews

    A4041B Aluminum Boom Stand 41 (13.5', Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, but needs air cushioning This combi-boom is built like a tank, compared with the much lighter-weight Manfrotto. Spending the extra $40 on this one was definitely a good investment. The one downside -- and it's a big one -- is that the stand is not air cushioned. Put a light and softbox on one end of the boom and a 20-lb. counterweight on the other end, and you're lifting and lowering a considerable amount of weight, with nothing to help you slow its descent. You've got to keep your grip very firm and use your strength to prevent gravity from bringing the whole thing plummeting down. I learned that the hard way the first time I used it. Also, to swing the boom around, you've got to loosen that same clamp that's used for raising and lowering; it can still come crashing down. If this stand was air cusioned -- even if it cost $15 more to do it -- it would be worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Multipurpose Device I haven't owned it long enough to speak about long-term durability, but so far I have been tremendously happy.The boom is very solid and, thus, slightly cumbersome to transport. It doesn't fit in a standard gear bag and has more moving parts than a simple stand combination. It's also about as big around as a gitzo studex.That said, if you're looking for an all-in-one option, this seems to be the best out there. It's a million times better than the impact boom stand and definitely worth the extra price.I would highly recommend this to any mobile/semi-mobile photographer. If you're setting up a studio, i'd go with the tried and true steel boom arm and stand route. If you need to lug a stand and boom around to shoots -- preferably in a car -- this is what you want.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not amazing. All of its built really well. I am a little disappointed with the knob to tighten down the boom arm. You really have to crank it around. And the boom arm will slip and swing down to the ground if you have enough weight on it. Which could be a good and bad thing I guess. I find it sort of annoying. Its pretty heavy but that's what you get with quality. It will hold up a beauty dish just fine but I wouldn't trust it too much with anything but a small soft-box on the end of it. But if your looking for a stand for lightweight modifiers here is your guy. Works great for hair lights. Also keep in mind that its a 3 section stand and you loose 2 sections of height when using it as a boom. So where the boom starts is just above 6'.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice combi-boom, needs better clamp I use it for indoor lighting mostly but it should work outdoors very well with it's leveling leg(that is why I bought it, the boom was just a bonus). It is heavy but sturdy with it's wide footprint and goes high enough in the non-boom configuration. The only thing that needs to be addressed is the boom clamp. It does take a lot of force to tighten the boom as it will drop just by pulling down at the end with your hand. It would be nice if the two mating surfaces had mating grooves like the Manfrotto 124 Clamp for 3085 Boom Arm. It is very impotant that a counter weight is used before a light and modifier are mounted. All that said, I do like using this stand and will continue so.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You will have it FOREVER I bought one about 8 years ago and it has been an awesome investment. I photograph kids and families so I need stands that aren't going to get knocked over. Its so great that I just talked myself into buying another. VERY useful as a boom as well. Great for hair light or even tabletop where you want to light from above. the 4 water bottle counterweight works well. As with any sort of boom, don't push its weight limits...definitely if there are any people under it. Expertise: Pro Problems Encountered: Counterweight can be a pain to get on at times.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mid-size boom setup I use the stand in the studio and in the field, mostly for portraits, with up to medium size monolights or speedlights. This stand will hold an Alien Bees 1600 or Photogenic Powerlight 1250 monolight with the boom fully extended, but at full extension it doesn't inspire confidence. With the 7' boom extended to 5' the stand is solid with the above lights. Speedlights are no problem. The stand has a wider base than other 13' standard stands that I use, which I like. My only complaint, and this is a big complaint for me, is that it is not air cushioned. When you have the boom extended with some 20 pounds of light and counterweights on it, it would be nice to know that the second riser isn't going to just drop if you don't have the think tight enough. It seems like a simple feature to include in a stand like this, if only with the bottom riser. Oh, well, I just make sure I tighten everything down well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Avenger Light Stand (or Mic Stand) This stand is one of the best deals in audio and lighting. Buy two small Manfrotto parts and you have a killer microphone stand with height up to 13 1/2 feet. Without the Manfrotto parts mentioned above, you have a very nice light stand. Included is a very well made sand bag (provide your own sand) for balance when using the boom. There is a lot of value. I now have 3 of them for my lighting and microphone needs. One little knit picky problem is the clamp at the boom elbow. It does what it is supposed to do. It just needs more tightening than the other clamps. Actually, it really is a clever piece of engineering. Truth be known, I use these more often for mic stands than light stands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't have made a better decision... I was looking for a reliable boom set-up that I can feel confident about in holding up a small to medium softbox w/ a hot shoe flash, both on location and at the studio. It might be overkill for a speedlite set-up, but I compared this to the Manfrotto equivalent 420B, as I'm sure a lot of people have. I'm glad I paid the premium for the Avenger. It may weigh a bit more (4lb difference), but for good reason. It holds up a Qbox24 with ease and I have no doubt it will hold up a monolight strobe and small/medium light modifier as well. I also like the fact that it's put together with nuts and bolts (a quality when buying premium), rather than riveted. I like the square tubes Avenger uses for it's legs as well, much stronger than round. I can appreciate those little details. The only reasons I see to reconsider the Manfrotto version is the overall weight, both in transportation and load. The A475B might be more than you need, but the little extra support can go a long way in the future. The reversible spigot was not a deal breaker, but it would have been a nice option.
