Matthews Hollywood Head Reviews
Accept no substitutes
Seriously, nothing matches Matthews quality here in my opinion. This gobo makes a great addition to my grip kit
Really good quality
Solid as a Rock
This boy be grippy. He holding tight and ain't letting go. Trustworthy little guy.
All-metal, super strong grip. Practice safe rigging, don't mess around with plastic parts.
Industry standard at a competitive price
You get what you pay for. I've gripped a lot on smaller shoots to larger ones, and Matthews lives in the tier along with American Grip that's accepted by almost every serious film professional. The cheaper but cruddier ones from Impact and Avenger (Manfrotto) work fine, but you'll run into moments where the bite jaws just jam and cannot be undone easily. I have yet to jam a Matthews grip head by misaligning the jaw and then fail to unjam it using a simple wrench to tap it gently and break the lock. I think part of this is due to how the Matthews grip head is difficult to overtighten. The avenger grip head has a slightly larger tie down which gives more torque, which unfortunately encourages overtightening the grip head. Overall, keep it simple stupid. This works well, is machined well, and will seldom let you down.
Heavy-duty and beautifully finished grip head
This is one swanky grip head. It really should come with a diamond necklace to hang from it. Love the smooth black finish. This will be used with pleasure and confidence. And it's not expensive.
Heavy-duty, steady, and reliable
Great piece of equipment!!
This item arrived well packaged and early. It works great! I couldn't wait to mount this on my Avenger boom and put my Dynalite 2040 flash head on it. This Matthews Hollywood Head is easy to work with because of its big handles. Easy to tighten with your hands than with your fingertips with tiny knobs. See photos
