    272B Adjustable Background Holder (108") is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great This is the same cross bar holder that comes in the Manfrotto kit, but the stands in that kit didn't go as high as I wanted. So I bought 2 of the Impact 9.5' heavy duty stands and bought 4 of the 2 pony spring clamps instead of that kit. I feel I got a much more heavy duty support system this way for less money. This cross bar ties everything in very well. It is very easy to set up and the telescoping pole is highly adjustable for different sized rooms.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful for traveling with backgrounds I've used this for paper rolls, but also for hanging loose fabric. PRO: It's lightweight & telescopes down to a transportable length. CON: It's lightweight, which worries me that it will break - but in several years' steady use, it hasn't. On occasion I've had trouble twisting (unlocking) its sections, to make it expand or contract.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for muslin too I already own some Manfrotto 1052BAC light stands (same as included in the full kit), also recommended, so I just added this crossbar. At its minimum length, its stiff enough that the light stands slip and shorten before the crossbar flexes when I pull down hard. At its maximum length, it does sag a little in the middle but its not a problem. The working length of the crossbar ranges from 42 to 9.5' and is infinitely adjustable between those two lengths. There are three tube sections and you just twist them to lock/unlock. The fittings that sit on top of the light stand spigots add 3 to the total length of the bar. The T-handle on the clamp brings the total thickness to just over 2 which wasn't a problem for the pocket on my 10x20 muslin. One clamp is free spinning which I think makes it easy to setup solo and could compensate for some uneven floors.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile and economical background bar I bought this background bar for location work - it's compact and sets up super quick without the need for super clamps as opposed to other more basic segmented bar systems. The screw-lock segments are a neat idea, but if they get over-tightened, it's a pain to get them loose again. Fortunately, the locks aren't really necessary for reliable operation and the segments hold their position on friction alone. The only thing that's lacking in this bar is that it won't accommodate backgrounds larger than 9', but I don't really need backgrounds that big on location, so this works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and Easy Unfortunately, I'm looking for a crossbar that can adequately hold a 107x50yd roll of seamless and they don't seem to be available. This one is doing the job, though it is warping under the load. It would be fine for a smaller roll or a fabric background. It seems well made. I like the clamps on the ends. I can spin them easily and clamp them down just as easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality I am using this to old a 107x150' roll of seamless paper, the heavy rolls. Yes, it deflects slightly, but it's holding just fine. I purchased a different crossbar, from a different manufacturer, but the end mount broke. This one has a better screw-clamp and is holding up just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product, just what I needed Considered DIY before purchasing this product, but glad I didn't. Bar is sturdy, easily adjustable and can be used on any standard light stands. Small enough when compressed to easily put in my car. Excellent for backdrops in studio and on the road.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When a pole is more than a pole Returned a complete background kit that was the same price of this product, leaned quickly that there is no substitute for Manfrotto quality! This is a solid product worth every dime.
