    Photoflex 870256 reviews

    Telescopic Litedisc Holder - 36-67" (91-170cm) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 98.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware! I own 3 of these. The first two are terrific. The new one is next to worthless. The boom doesn't slide well in the yoke because there is a plastic sleeve that's sloppy. The screws bind in their threads becuase of bad tapping. The plastic heads break off the thumbscrews because the plastic is so thin over the bolt head molded in. It is difficult or impossible to tighten the screws enough to hold a bigger lightdisk or the chroma backgrounds. I was too stupid to believe another bad review, becuase I already owned and liked the product - I should have believed it. Beware; this is not the product it once was! PHOTOFLEX - SHAME ON YOU. This change in quality ruined your credibility with me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality I just received the product and put it to use immediately. I have used it to hold a reflector, Botero foldable background, and as a boom for my 580EX II. I have used this on large 13ft light stands and small 6ft light stands and haven't had any problems with stability. When used outdoors it is important to use weights and/or counterweights to keep everything steady when the wind picks up. The all aluminum construction shows this is a top notch product compared to the cheaper versions. I will never buy a light stand, boom, or reflector holder made with plastic ever again. For the price you pay you simply can't beat the quality and utility of this product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Photoflex Quality I am using this to hold 40 round reflectors (5-in-1) in a nearly horizonaton orientation. Despite some of the reviews, I find that this unit holds very well and I am not having my 40 reflectors sag. Depending upon your exact setup, one can swap positions of the rear reflector clip and grip head, so that the entire reflector is supported more towards the middle of the reflector, and not just on its end. This works perfectly with a Matthews side arm, holding the reflector to bouce fill from either a soft box or beauty dish. Try changing the orientation of the setup, and it might just have all the holding power one could ask for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Convenient This is the most convenient way to hold a reflector. Sure beats some lazy, bad-aiming assistant or wife. The clamps that hold the reflector, etc., are very well designed and aren't likely to damage what they are holding. Don't forget to use a counterbalance or sandbag your lightstand if you put much weight on it. Photoflex makes nice, well made products. This is as good or better (from what I can tell having not used them all) than other more expensive items of its type. It can also be used to hold a smallish background. You probably need one of these if you don't have one, go on and buy it. It'll save a lot of thinking about it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Main use of this product is to hold reflectors and sheets of foam-core. Very sturdy. Very versatile. My only major complaint about this product is due to having used a different manufacturer's version of this. The other manufacturer's product utilized a ball-joint for positioning and rotating the boom arm. The benefit of that style is that you release a single lever, make the adjustments, then tighten a single lever. With the Photoflex version, you have to loosen (and subsequently tighten) two levers/screws in order to adjust boom arm tilt and boom arm rotation. This isn't a deal-breaker, but is significantly more inconvenient than the other one I have. Overall, just due to the quality alone, I definitely recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job very well I use this mainly to hold my reflectors and also as a boom.This sold metal Holder is very well built and stable but bit on the heavier side to be a hand held boom. Having said that it holds reflectors even with hefty edges better than anything else I've come across.The reason for giving this unit four stars is the inaccurate description about its length. The holder is actually 3 1/2 inches longer than specified here and on the manufacturer website.The closed length of the holder is 39.5.So if you buy a bag less than 40 long, thinking this 36 inch holder would be the longest piece of equipment that would go in the bag - you'd be in trouble. It happened to me and I had to waste time to look for another bag ...The item itself is top quality - I'm very happy with it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not tough enough for demanding work A bit loose, a bit flimsy. The price is Ok, that what made me buy the holder, but being used to Broncolor equipment this product just doesn't hold up to the rigors of professional work. The boom doesn't lock tight enough and doesn't fit well on some tripods, better on others which is strange.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Should work with a counterweight! I haven't had many opportunities to really put this to the test, but I attempted to use it most recently on a newborn session. Despite trying to make a few adjustments, the weight of my reflector disc was obviously too heavy for the mechanism that tightens the boom arm. I'm sure if I used a counterweight, it might be a little more effective, however, I was hoping this wouldn't be necessary. It's a little cumbersome to bring along a counterweight, especially if I'm shooting by myself on location. Hopefully with some fine tuning I can get this problem remedied. Other than that, the rubber grips on the clamps are great for not having to worry about the discs ripping with extended use.
