Matthews RoadRags II Reviews

nice portable flags

By Jungran
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-08-10

very good if you need portable flags, well built, expensive

Disappointing snap buttons

By Florian
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2020-09-22

Seriously disapponted as the snap buttons are really tought to unsnap and even being cautious, one of them broke as I was trying to unsnap it. I have to use a flat screwdriver in between the button two side to gently split them.

Flexible set up for tight kits

Great for my business as I travel pretty tight and all my equipment has to be both a good use of space and good quality. This item does both of these things!

Light and fast

I've tried a number of different light modifiers and this beats the Scrim Jim for speed and size, and the popup modifiers for control and variation, on doc shoots with no or small crew. Very happy.

Versatile Flag System

I love the flexibility from the RoadRags kits. For any filmmaker who doesn't want to transport a full flag kit, this is perfect.

A bit pricy but worth every penny!!

It's not cheap, but the quality is there. you get what you pay for as they say. Portable, reliable, versatile and compact with a great case. Highly recommended.

Revising my original review, snaps are a problem

By David
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2020-11-19

I concur with the reviewer who observed that snaps are difficult to unsnap and to that I will add that last might as I tried to undo a snap the part that holds the receiver on the strap broke right off. So there is a quality problem, but it goes beyond that, there is a design problem. It should not require a lot of pull in order to unsnap these fasteners. I’m wondering if a different type of snap would be more reliable and easier to snap and unsnap. I like the design of the Road Rags except for these snaps. I’m worried that I'm going to have failures like this in the future. I've been using Matthews gear since 1989 and have always been pleased with the quality. This Road Rags snap experience is my first disappointment with their gear and comes as quite a surprise, and I’m not the only end-user observing this problem. I’m thinking of replacing the snaps on my flags and nets, since I love the design, but dislike the unreliable snaps.

Need flags when you travel?

By David
Rated 5 out of 5

These are lovely flags and nets to travel with. Assembles like tent poles. You have to treat them with care, they will not Stan up to the abuse standard grip gear is designed to endure. On the other hand, given their intended purpose, compact and lightweight, they are an excellent solution to the problem of needing standard sized flags but not having the space fir them when traveling. Road tested, but not designed for abuse,

question

How often are the frames replaced due to stress fractures? I have unknowingly cracked the gold tube at the point where it enters the black center holder, essentially ruining the frames. How common is this for others?
Asked by: James
Hi James, I bought a set of these about 15 moths ago. They've not had heavy used, but I haven't experienced anything like that - mine are holding up very well.
