    Matthews 429499 reviews

    Telescopic Baby Stand Extension is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as described, but well made. The product itself is well made, compact, and should work well. It is, however, not 18-54. At the short end, it will extend your stand by 15 and full extended it will extend by 46 3/4 (overall length including the mounting stud at the top is 16 1/2 when collapsed and 48 1/4 when fully extended). Getting shorted 8 probably isn't a deal breaker for me, but I might have sprung for the longer Manfrotto extensions had the item been accurately described. It looks and feels like a solid product, as long as the actual specs match what you're expecting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Does the job well. Very useful to travel with light gear that can fit in a suitcase.The end nut is not threaded. So you need an swivel umbrella adapter or some other way to attach a light or anything that requires a screw. Length is ok. Sections are not spring-damped. Good value for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from AKA - collapsible Half Pole Just the thing for a flight kit that fits in a suitcase. Allows you to extend a tripod (like the Matthews MERF or Lowel Unistand) just a few feet for a hair light without the need for a special long tripod bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from small and cheap Nice and small, could be lighter, price is right. The top has a stud, but I would rather have a socket so I can pick my own stud without having to add a heavy universal adapter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from love it it fits nicely on lots of things you find in the field, but most importantly all my clamps like a charm. it loses 1 star for not using a standard threaded top like most stands it mimics. still, over all it gives reach any situation and it is built well also. I like it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baby Got Back...Your Back. Solid Matthews quality and finish. I love this because it is so compact yet offers great extension and decent strength for its size and weight. You can use it to extend any light stand, Baby Stand or even as a boom arm with a Mafer clamp. Very handy and so portable. I often use mine to add a second light or accessory to my Mathews Background Stand. I will probably add some more of these in the future.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, well made, effective I bought this to use as a small, portable light stand, rather than using a traditional 10' or 13' stand. I used it with a Manfrotto Super Clamp clamped to a table and it worked great. It folds up small and is very portable. It is well made - I put an Alien Bees monobloc with a 44 umbrella on it at full extension. This is probably about as heavy an item as I'd want to use, but it handled it just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Strong I use my extension Telescopic Baby Stand Extension with a Manfrotto Super Clamp to mount my audio mics. When collapsed, the pole easily fits in my gear bag (a medium sized messenger bag) and is very lightweight. It holds firm and steady even when fully extended. I'd highly recommend this for situations when a full floor stand is not practical to mount mics or other equipment.
