    First Studio Backdrop Support Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 62.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I chose this product for versatility. It's my first portable backdrop stand setup, I also used it for a trade show backdrop. The stands are actual lightstands, I've used them at gigs with no problems. I am quite satisfied with this product, particularly at this price. My only observation is that the case is JUST long enough for the kit. An extra inch or two would be nice, along with a bit more room to stuff a small umbrella or two without feeling like they might get crunched. The construction of the case appears quite durable. Other reviews have criticized the case construction, I'm not sure what they were expecting in a kit of this cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth the money. Does everything you would want it to do. Very sturdy product. Although my primary use involves leaving it setup at all times, I'm sure it would be an ease to use on location. I use this support kit with Savage Thunder Gray Paper and it hold up just fine. Would definitely recommend this product. I was going to go with the Impact brand, but I'm definitely glad I splurged and went with something a little higher quality. The bag it comes with is quite nice and fits the whole kit as well as my 53 roll of seamless.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quality Control, Quality Control?????? Took it out the box and started mounting the stand, I noticed that one of the light stands has stripped threads on the locking nuts, I called Photoflex directly and had to wait for someone to return my call. I was instructed to Email them a copy of my invoice and a picture of the light stand. I own Several Light stands from PhotoFlex and they feel and seem well built, but I've also had them for a while. I'm hoping PhotoFlex has not compromised quality, but I'm not feeling good about a support kit that I can't use because of broken metal part straight out of the box. It should have been checked by someone from QA before shipping it to me. I just emailed the requested information, and I'm curious how they will handle the issue and how well they value their customers? Photoflex you only get ONE chance at this, so lets hope you get it correct!! I'll update in a week....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stand Delivers I purchased this Photoflex stand after returning the Backdrop Alley stand (see my review there for why.) I can honestly say that I cannot be happier with this equipment. The stands are of exceptional quality: sturdy, smooth and with good hardware. The telescoping beam (which I was afraid was the weakest link) is well-designed: it can handle its maximum span with very, very little noticeable bowing and the sections operate smoothly. (I hanged a 10' wide muslin at an eight foot height.) By design, it can be sized to any width larger than the its collapsed size, unlike stands whose beams have fixed, locking sections. The equipment is quick and easy to breakdown or setup. (I set up alone and did not find it difficult to place the beam and raise it.) Despite the impressive heft of the stands, the entire kit is not a burden to carry. I'd say the bag is fine. I can't imagine what other reviewers plan on doing with this equipment if they are so concerned about this not-even-close-to-flimsy bag ripping. I shoot in many different locations and generally use large area backdrops of muslin/paper. For me, this setup is perfect.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good value backdrop support Stable and robust backdrop support kit. Easy to set up, and comes with usefull carrierbag. Good size for use in studio or even on location. A bit heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sturdy kit The stands are strong and sturdy. I was a litlle concerned about the strength of the telescoping cross-bar, but after using a Savage vinyl 8 x 10 backdrop for nearly 2 weeks w/o any sag, I am no longer concerned. The carrying bag no longer says anything about First Studio which ws a turnoff to earlier purchasers,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stand! Works perfectly and sets up super easily. Lots of the reviews said it was flimsy so I was unsure, but it is not - I even bought some sandbags but I won't need them in all conditions. The pole is easy to use and if you stick to pulling it out 2/3 of the length, it won't sag at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial Strength Very heavy duty. Can't believe the stands are built this heavy for the price. I paid more for light stands that aren't this beefy and the cross bar is more than adequate too. Shoulder bag included was a nice addition too!
