    Matthews 427802 reviews

    Mini Boom (45-80") is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST Mini Boom(paired with M's C Stand) After years of using regular light stands, finally picked up a Matthews C+ stand and added the Matthews Mini-Boom with it. SO MUCH better than any other boom / stand combo I have ever used (and most booms cost much much more). After using this other stands/booms are a JOKE. SOLID, STRONG, BUILT LIKE A TANK, ABSOLUTELY NO WORRIES ABOUT FLASHES DROPPED, A JOY TO USE AND IMPRESSIVE GEAR TO CLIENTS- and the kicker, not much more expensive. Could probably hang my pickup on this if needed (okay maybe not that strong) but you will NOT have any regrets. Adding 2 more Matthews stands and one more of these Matthews Mini-Booms SOON.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Real Deal This is hard core studio equipment baby! None of the mamby pamby, sort of kind of, might be ok fluff that passes as prosumer, this is the real deal! Made of steel, strong as an Ox and ready for anything you care to throw at it. The boom is adjustable in length, as well as the balance point. Includes a hook on the end for a counter-weight. I recommend you get a 10lb clamp-on weight from Manfrotto, but that is your choice. You will need some sort of counter-weight to balance the boom. A sturdy, wheeled light-stand is also a must. You can vary the length of the boom as well as the balance point with just a twist of a knob. A serious piece of kit for studio photographers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Equipment This is the best boom arm I have owned. In 1980's I used a Bogen super Boom and replaced it with an Avenger Boom in the 90's. This is superior to them both.I use it on a Matthews C Stand and also on their rolling stand. It will support every light and modifier I have, including a large softbox. I aslo purchased an Avenger 15lb weight to balance the arm.With the weight in place and a 25lb sandbag on the stand this thing is a joy to use. I find my self somtimes adjusting my lighting for the pleasure of operating the boom. The adjustments are sooth as silk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Versatile I have a small studio area, so I need my equipment to be flexible. Compared to other lightweight stands, working with the Matthews gear might at first seem expensive. Then you mount your other expensive gear on this solid boom arm and you rest easy that it is going to stay where you put it, and not come crashing to the ground. The mini boom is very simple to adjust and gives a lot of flexibility for positioning and counterweighting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job A must-have for moderate to light duty jobs in combination of the Baby Jr. Triple Riser. Tip: When unloading the light OR the weight- have a friend helping you! Under a stressful situation, it's easy to forget that you've got a loaded slingshot ready to launch once you take the weight off of one side.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid construction with improvements The second Matth Mini Boom I've owned, and like all Matthews products this is a solid well-built piece of gear. It also has the great improvement of cross-hatching on the 5/8 stud to minimize any rotation or slippage of whatever you're attaching to the end of it. Strong construction but small enough to be a part of anyone's location package.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very dependable Strong and gets it done, right!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchased this item to go along with my Avenger C-stand and Matthews Magic Stand. Clamps and handles are smooth and solid. A little difficult to hang a sand bag on the hook if the strap is wide.
