    #023 Super Collapsible Background (8x16', Dark Gray Texture) is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get an assistant (or two)! The first time you open this collapsible background, PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION as it's not easy getting it collapsed again. It's probably impossible for one person to fold it back up alone, and it's a comedy of errors folding it with an assistant. Never tried it with two assistants, so I don't know if that would help. Also, the dye rubs off VERY easily; Your hands, shirt, pants, etc. will get dirty. I've found the best way to hang it is against a wall using tape; There's only the one center loop on top. Overall, the smaller size would likely work better for most, as this one is HUGE. While this is a great textural background and is portable enough, I think even the stands & crossbar is an easier solution. Hey, if you're not going anywhere, it's perfect once you get it up!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful The dye rubs off. The background will not lean on a wall, the spring steel they use is low grade weak tensile strength. I used a bolt cutter to cut the frame and removed excess fabric. Then I used an upholstery needle and thread to attach this to a quality Impact backdrop, so it would stand freely against a wall. I refastened the spring and clamped it. Then I stretched the fabric and sewed it to the frame with the upholstery thread. It took hours just to get this thing to work like it should have in the first place. To get it to work, I had to mod it and mount it to an Impact backdrop. Working with this fabric, my hands look like I dipped them in graphite powder. I just hope that whatever they use for dye isn't toxic.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected -slit/hole in fabric not in description. Two reasons I returned this: 1. There is a slit in the non-metal that it the material only end. The slit has stitching on the edges so it's intentional. But it's not mentioned in the description. Not sure purpose but I was going to hang it long ways - 16' across and there would be this gap showing. 2. It arrived dirty/ dusty. It was going to take a lot of wiping to clean up the multiple places where it was dragged in the dirt. We opened it in our clean house. In other words, it didn't get dirty here. Sorry no picture - my office folded it up before I could take one and I wasn't not folding up it again. Folding it was easy but I could see the need to watch the video multiple times. Also you need lots of room to fold it and we were going to use this for small rooms trying to set in front of junky areas or equipment.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont do it. Very cumbersome. The ink they used rubbed off on my customers feet. Its like it is spray painted. Terrible

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall I love this background I love the portability of this background. You can bring it anywhere, and just pop it into place. The only issue is, it needs support up to the top. You can't lean it on something that hits the middle of the background, it will just fall to the ground.
