Impact Grip Arm Reviews

Does the same job for half the price

Impact products are great. No complaints. Cheap and cheerful.

Wish the bar was removable from the head, but still great

Very sturdy. My only wish is that they were removable from the head so I could use them with Impact adjustable grip head IMKCP200 / KCP-200 without the attached head. It kinda makes an OK counterweight though. Also wish there was a flat on the end of the head to ensure heavy lights won't rotate. I'll fix that one myself :)

I bought the arm to hold one of my 8 x 8 LED lamps. Because the diameter of the arm is 5/8 it fits into the socket of the LED lamp The clamp is very strong and will hold the lamp at an angle out over an object that needs lighting

Very good

It works as advertised. Solid metal. Note that the grip head is fixed at the end. It doesn't slide along the arm. No problems with my copy.

What option would I need to add a microphone ...

What option would I need to add a microphone thread to the end of this arm? Wanting to add a shotgun mic to this setup. Thank you!
Asked by: Byron
You can use an Atlas 8d tube (threaded ends-sold on B&H). Place the main portion of the tube in the Gobo head. Using a mic mount you can add a Rode shotgun/Senheiser/or Shure mic to capture your sound. Use one of the open holes on the Gobo head to thread your mic cable through (XLR or mini 8) dependent on the type of shotgun mic you use. As Royce had said in the previous answer, there are a number of ways to mount this. Good luck with your rigging.

question

Why is this the same price as the 40 grip arm? You would think the 20 grip arm would be a little bit cheaper considering it's half the length..
Asked by: Joe P.
I spoke to our buyer and we generally look at many things when pricing an item, making sure B&H is always offering the best value and most competitive price. Currently, the 40 is a fantastic deal and its not that they are both the same price but we are able to offer a better deal on the 40.

question

Is this too heavy for a manfrotto 1052bac?
Asked by: Rahul S.
It is compatible but if you use it extended it might tip. And in general I would use it with a sand bag.And if you do you should use it with another grip.Note that an arm like that is not made for heavy items like studio strobes. It is really made for cards, gobos and smaller lights like speedlights.For heavier items it is best to use a boom. And those can be boom arms, boom kits or boom stand combos. But the boom arms you should use a heavier and stronger stand.

I bought 2 of these and have trouble loosening them. When I turn the handles, they come off rather than open the grip head. Anyone know if there's a particular technique or do I have faulty ones?
