485100 Economy Chalkboard Production Slate is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's good. I use this slate for syncing independent films. It's got a nice clap. Not too bulky. Chalk erases well. Be aware, however, that it is essentially a chalkboard. There is no backing to support it so while it can withstand repeated claps, if you set something heavy on it, it is probably going to break. This slate probably isn't appropriate for complicated shoots, as it doesn't provide enough space to write extra stuff on it. But as a part of the whole professionalism image, no actor will notice the difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get The Clap I took a gamble on this because the dry erase clappers become useless when you can't erase the marker anymore. So far, this works well with chalk, but keep a coarse towel or wash cloth handy for erasing the chalk. You'll need some elbow grease. Slightly damp works best if you can do that to make it look brand new. Would have been five stars but the did't think of adding the color bars to the sticks. Pretty decent build but have a dedicated case for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does the job What can one say? It is a clap board and it does a fine job of clapping. I'm doing lightweight training videos with simply synchronization needs, so I don't need anything fancy. I do appreciate that it isn't one of those tiny boards. I like that it uses chalk rather than dry-erase markers; chalk seems much more green and there is no temptation to accidentally write something using a permanent marker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for small studio budget Can't do a video without a clapper board, and this one is well built and perfect for my uses. Easy to write on and it adds a lot of character to my video shooting. Fun to say Lights, camera action too!
