Manfrotto 420CSU Reviews

It's good but you need a massive counterweight

By Bobkov
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-02-21

If you have a full sized studio flash you need a counterweight of twice the weight of your flash. It's a pity the manufacturer fails to stress the importance of a suitable counterweight. Trying to balance the boom arm by tightening the knobs isn't right and won't suffice. The 018 caster wheels aren't good, they just fail to roll straight. In my opinion this boom stand is best for lighter flashes like Godox AD300 and speedlites. If you have the Godox AD600 (Pro) use the flash head head slitter like H600P to leave the massive body down. You can connect to the AD600 body to the base of the boom with a Super clamp and a stud making the stand sturdier.

Great solid and versatile stand

Very sturdy stand that supports weight well even when fully extended. The counter weight works well to balance even heavy modifiers, but I did have an issue with my 50 octabox. Structurally it was okay, but I just couldn't tighten the small heads on the tightening screws enough to keep it from slowly slipping, resulting in the light sagging. It supported my 24 x 36 softbox just fine, however. I really like that you can move the 5/8 mounting pin from the end to the side if you wish for mounting when used as a boom. I am primarily going to use this with a clamp style speedlight mount (clamped onto the boom arm) and a Cheetahstand Ricebowl to mimic Broncolor's Deep Para ($$$$$), the telescoping boom arm acting as the focusing rod. HUGE value out of this stand when used in this capacity.

Very good addition to the studio

It's heavy and holds with no problem a strobe and soft box. Very versatile in both functions as stand and as a boom. Included sandbag with hook is super useful.

Most incredible and versatile stand in my arsenal. Well worth the price! Make sure to get the 10 pound weight and wheels.

Sturdy, But not a good Boom Stand in MHO

By 2much2cary

Lift and extend strobe + med. Softbox. It uses heavy weight components and in general very sturdy. But the Boom arm has no suitable stops in which to anchor a counterweight. It does have a hole at the very end, but that is it. Sandbags have to be attached to this end (only). I must use my 25lbs weights (that clamp to the extended arm) from my Manfrotto 025 Super Boom, or extend the arm back to get the mechanical advantage. Otherwise fine product.

I know this is not cheap and not something that would be front-of-mind for video equipment purchases. However, this thing thing is awesome! Complete and precise microphone setup with no assistant. It's great for a freelancer like myself. Please be prepared...it's heavy.

Very solid boom stand!

Very sturdy stand! It is heavy, but do to the heft, the stand provides a very stable support. Highly recommend if looking to support a strobe or heavy modifier.
