    Single Axis Stand Adapter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truely Professional Grade The Chimera Single Axis Stand Adapter is truely professional grade at a price not much higher than the Asian plastic and pot metal adapters so widely in use. I have no doubt my adapters will be around and functioning decades after I am gone. After purchasing my first, I was totally convinced on how well engineered and constructed the Chimera adapers are. I now always have several of both the single and double adapters in my kit when I am lighting. I totally trust them to easily handle my larger fixtures, monolites and expensive Quantum strobes even with heavy light modifiers attached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally Well Engineered & Built I was absolutely stunned at the quality of this product in terms of its engineering, ease of use and functionality. It puts every similar piece I've seen and used to shame. I needed a rather heavy duty unit to directly mount a speed ring for an extra large (54x72x32) softbox, hanging an Einstein strobe off of the speed ring. The softbox generates far more leverage than the strobe, and I was not confident that the stobe's speedring mount could handle the weight of that softbox. After taking one look at this adapter following its delivery, I was confident that this unit provides a significant strength safety factor, giving me a high level of comfort. It gives me the flexibility to easily aim the light, and the confidence that it will stay put. As an rather picky engineer myself, it just feels good to use, it's beautifully made, and the mechanical advantages engineered into its design are immediately evident.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought one, then I bought two more Almost 5 stars, a night and day difference to cheaper units from other manufacturers, very sturdy and able to hold a heavy load. I use this to mount LED lights in combination with umbrellas. There are a couple of things that could be better however: 1) The plastic lever for tightening the unit feels a little flimsy and could have been made of metal, or even just a little thicker plastic design. I'm worried that with UV exposure it may weaken and crack. 2) The little brass accessories don't really work for me and I had to buy extra 5/8 studs - at the high price point they could have included several different types accessories. Despite that, I got two more because they do what I need them to do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product and excellent serivce Due to a wedding gig, i required a Wescott 7 feet umbrella to take group shots. The normal flash and umbrella mounting could support the weight of it. So I knew B&H would offer me something that would do the job. I read from another review that this Chimera single axis stand would do the job. So purchased 2 units. Came shortly in 2 days. I found that one of the parts that was supposed to in was not there in one of the unit. Sent email regarding the matter and without hesitation B&H responded and sent the part. I am extremely happy, B&H you got yourself a loyal customer now! Cheers!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic tightened stripped Unfortunately, while the rest of it is metal, the ratcheting fastener is made of plastic, and has stripped after only two years of use. Why they can't make that part with metal, I have no idea.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Clamp I use this to mount a small strobe and an umbrella on a small light stand. It works great, is well made but I should probably update this review after I've used it for about 10 years or so, assuming I'm still in photography. I may take up another career, probably something in radio because my face is pretty hideous. It actually looks like this clamp, if you can believe it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tank This thing is built like a tank. What stand adapter is more robust or heavy duty than this one? And for the price? I love it. A little heavy but worth the extra few ounces and extra few dollars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Rugged as it looks I use this adapter to connect my Chimera Super Pro Plus Softbox to a boom stand. Rock solid is what I need and what this adapter delivers.
