Matthews B377701 overview

  • 1Description

The Matthews Mini Max is the smaller compact version of Matthews' popular MAX. Like its larger counterpart, the Mini Max allows placement of a fixture in places where no other lighting support system may go.

Mini Max will operate on a 105" maximum arc from 14' high to below the horizontal. Mini Max features two rocky mountain legs in the front and an adjustable main column leg for use on stairs or uneven terrain.

Mini Max can "fly" right in, making it possible to strategically place a Key or Back Light.
It can support a 25 lb fixture at a height of 9' (2.7 m) with a 9' (2.7 m) horizontal extension.
A 3:1 weight ratio is recommended for safe operation of Mini Max.

    Matthews B377701 reviews

    Mini Max Boom is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Boom Solution in Tight Environments The MiniMax is an elegant solution where you have a set requirment for a boom rig, be it for a hairlight to an overhead key, china ball or even a microphone. The beauty of this unit is it can be used in almost any space from a small room to a stairway. It can accept a 20 pound light head at full extension which is brought home when you look at the materials used for the construction of this device. The tubing, knuckles and leg extensions that you expect to find on high end American Stands and C-stands. Has all the adjustments necessary for uneven surfaces and stairwells. The only downside of this unit is the weight and the bulk when folded. One person can carry it a distance but it is a chore. Bags and cases are not readily available for them so a custom bag or case is probably required. It must be sandbagged, however it is quite stable once done. I would recommend this to one man band operators as well as for crew operation. The benefits of this unit far outweigh the negatives. I see this as an essential part of the tool kit and will look into getting a smaller one as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool I've had two of these for more than a year. I use them often. Can be placed close to walls with no cantaleverering. Holds a 4 bulb Kino Diva. Only qualm is that the lockdowns vibrate to loose during transport in the vehicle. But still worth the trouble. Great tool. Could use improvement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need another one Quick. Fastest setup for an overhead 25lb fixture. Hanging an overhead Kino Flo Parabeam 400 in under 10 minutes is now possible. That's all I need to say.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile and safe I've mounted lights, cameras and shotguns to this baby and always felt safe about placing it over talent. It is built like a brick and is very versatile. I use a Kino offset extension to add a little extension if needed. It's one of those pieces that stays loaded in my SUV and is used more often then expected.
