Is there a weight limit for the arm?

Is there a weight limit for the arm?
Asked by: Louis
The weight limit is more determined by the limit of the stand keeping the boom, counterweight and load all under the limit of the stand.

Is that a standard gobo head used on the boom? Mine broke and need to replace. Thanks.
Asked by: Brian
Thanks all. I contacted Matthews and learned that the head on the mini boom is identical to the standard matthews gobo head with one exception - the bolt is shorter on the mini boom head.

question

what is the best mathews c stand for this boom?
Asked by: Anonymous
I don't use a c stand for this boom but purchased Matthew's sky high combo triple riser (15' 3 ) that works great. Whatever you end up with make sure it's a hefty base to support this size boom, which the combo triple riser is.

question

My kit weighs about 8.2lbs before I add the octabox. The strobe and the speedring weigh about 8.2lbs. Would I be able to add the octa and still be solid ?
Asked by: Darnell N.
I use it with Profoto B1 and fairly big Elinchrom Indirect octa 53 and it works just fine... Weight it down for balance and should work for you :) Happy shooting
