Great for holding a fill
Been using these to hold 8x8 ultrabounce, silk, duvetine, etc. for years. Reliable and lightweight.
I bought this crossbar to hang a heavy printed fabric background where any sagging would render it useless. At full extension there is barely visible sagging in the middle which I got rid of by slightly stretching the fabric sideways on top. Very easy to mount and to extend. It would work well with paper as well. Highly recommend it if you are concerned about sagging.
Holds my 8x8ft Muslin Backdrops
I've got mine holding up my 8x8ft muslin backdrops and there's almost no sag in the middle.
If you already have a collection of light stands.
Good quality, Handle Kino Flo the DMX image 47 light very well
Good backdrop holder
Pro quality, no bending, very happy
Never had this happen before
In years of using this support, never ran across this problem. The ends will NOT fit into Savage backdrop tubes. The ends require 1.75 ID tubes, while the Savage backdrops are somewhat less than that. While this isn't really a problem with the Manfrotto holder, it would be good if the ends came off completely to allow skinnier rolls to fit. The black ends are permanently riveted in, so to use this bar with the Savage backdrop rolls, one needs to cut the roll and tape it to the bar. Not real optimal for a quick setup or change.
