    Manfrotto 173B reviews

    173B Mini Boom Arm Only - Black is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and strong I use this for both lighting support and mic support. I've only mounted smaller LED light panels and shotgun mics on this boom, but it works great. I use the additional 3 pound weight for counterbalancing and they make a great little system. It has thread adapters at both ends, which is nice.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I own 2 of these solid rod, can hold my profotos easily, but you would need a counter weight or sand bag. i own 2 and i like them a lot. nice black finish!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Strobists This is a great boom arm for using with strobist-style lighting. It's about 1 meter long, strong, but lightweight. With a lightstand and the right brackets it gives you a lot of flexibility getting your flash where you want it. More solid than the illustration might suggest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works, good value I wouldn't try using this boom arm for strobes but I used it with a speedlight,, works well and it was my original intention to use it for speedlights,,, very inexpensive solution when you don't feel like using a c-stand with a grip arm,,, good for a normal portable lightstands and speedlights

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's what it is There is no secret. It's just a boom arm with studs. It's a reasonably high quality product. Useful with grip handles.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Boom This is a very sturdy boom. Each end is different which can be used for different size equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small boom arm Great boom arm, it is only 43 inches but, is long enough for many uses in studio or on location. It is a lightweight boom arm designed to use with the newer smaller more compact strobe heads and it is very well made. You will need to have your own counter weight setup as this is a boom only. I own several other larger Manfrotto booms so, if you are using heavier strobe heads and need a lot of length then choose another boom.
