    Impact KCP-700B26 reviews

    Super Clamp with Standard (1/4"-20) Stud is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 110.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a few bucks, multitudes of possibilities This has got to be one of the coolest little accessories I've seen. You can use it to attach a flash, light, or other modifier/accessory to a table, rail, chair back, post, fence, anything that it can grip around. It's very solid chunk of metal, and I absolutely appreciate the fail-safe release for the brass post. A very well thought out little clamp, worthy of it's name, Super Clamp. Even if they cost twice as much, they're worth it. Expertise: Professional Problems Encountered: It's a solid piece of metal. If it were made out of lighter alloy, then it's be perfect, but still I'm not going to complain about it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Grip The Super Clamp is a study vise like device that can be attached to many round or flat surfaces up to about 2 wide. The interior of the mouth has a non-slip surface. Turning the handscrew to lock down the jaws until snug is often enough to secure even larger objects. The stud allows for connections of a small camera to the device or even various continuous or strobe light units. With the stud removed a variety of 3/8 to 1/2 support poles may be inserted to support light modifiers. The rear of the unit allow for the addition of other accessories such as paper roll hooks. Overall I would recomend this product to others.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product at a great price I was pleasantly surprised by the build quality on this clamp. Much more rugged than I expected given the price. Just use some common sense and tighten it down no more than necessary for the job and it should last for many years. Functionally, its perfect. Clamps solidly to virtually any pole or slab. I often use mine with a set of PA speaker stands to create ultra heavy duty lighting stands. Works wonderfully for that purpose. I guess my only compliance, and it's minor, is that I can't figure out what the little attachment is for that flops around under the knob that tightens down on the brass stud.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impact - Lack of quality materials Like others I went for the cheaper product trying to save a bit of $. Big mistake! The clamp itself seems fine but the weakest point, the standard stud, fails!A soon as I tried to screw something on it the tip broke off! ... the stud is made from white metal/pot metal NOT BRASS. I'm not a metallurgist but I am a professionally working metalsmith and know my metals. I wouldn't trust this stud for holding anything and have already ordered replacements (Manfrotto) and will only be purchasing Manfrotto from now on.I would give the clamp a 3 or 4 but the stud failure takes it down to a 1. Why they decided to really skimp on materials for this all-important part is beyond reason.Also- Trying to save $ is fine, but when you add up the cost of this product + shipping the difference between this and the Manfrotto is negligible, especially considering the unreliability of the stud.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be very careful about connector screw Be very careful about the screw shown at the top of this clamp. We used a variable friction arm (also available through B&H) for use in clipping a digital camera onto a wheelchair and because the variable friction arm was so tight in the joints, the screw broke off into the socket of the friction arm. It didn't take much effort at all to break it, so be wary of this!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best, but does the job. I use this clamp with maily lighting (great for an up-high backlight in a warehouse). But I carry a couple of these around on every shoot. Once used one to ceiling mount a small handycam. Short Anwser: Manfrotto makes the better one that will last forever, the impact version of the same clamp may be 35$ cheaper and will get the same jobs done, but it may need to be replaced after a few years. I'd buy the more expensive Manfrotto unless your strapped for cash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy dury When I received this clamp I couldn't help but notice it felt heavier than my Manfrotto 035RL super clamp. It also has a higher weight rating. Well I thought that was nice (I really didn't need the higher rating) and less expensive, always nice. The quality, in my opinion, is just as good. One earlier reviewer mentioned it took longer to close because it uses a wing nut, since I position the clamp and use one hand to squeeze the jaws together and spin the wing nut with a finger it's just as speedy, I also do this with the Manfrotto, so this is not an issue. Quality is excellent and so is the price.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stud fails I had exactly the same problem that was described by the metalsmith. The stud fails (snaps off inside the mounted arm). On examination under a 10x lens, the stud is clearly not solid brass. There is only a thin coating of brass, with some pot metal inside.
