Black Pivoting Yoke for Matthboard is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea. Mediocre design. No inventory. Even in light/moderate wind, it keeps a reflector sufficiently still, with no rippling like effect like a flex fill. (I use it on a C-Stand weighted with a sandbag.) My complaints are with the design-- it serves such a simple purpose that there shouldn't be anything to complain about, but... There are no threaded clamps to install the reflector. The mounts on either side are just two tabs angled inward, so you have to cram/shimmy the reflector into place. It's a tight fit and I felt worried I was going to snap the board in half. Right now it's still installed, and I'm dreading having to take it out: I feel like every time I want to remove the board, I'll have to bend the frame outward. This would be such a better product if it had threaded jaws to receive the reflector. And between the frame and the stand attachment clamp, there is a lock washer that rips away at the metal of the clamp every time it is loosened. Replaced that with a flat washer right away. Second, apparently Matthews is notoriously bad at maintaining inventory on certain products. I can't find the fill reflector anywhere. A rep from another major vendor (not B&H) told me that they've had it on order for over 6 months. So, make sure you can get a hold of the board you want before you buy the yoke, or build your own. I think this product line has a lot of potential. I wish Matthews would take it more seriously. It'll serve an important purpose for me, but I'll have to invest a little bit of time into modifying the reflector clamps so they don't drive me nuts or lead to snapped boards.
