Impact VP-712BP overview

  • 1Description

The adjustable Deluxe Varipole Support System (Pair) from Impact offers two Varipoles to create a functional studio backdrop and grip system. The Varipole easily and quickly mounts between floor and ceiling providing stable support for backdrops, reflectors, lights and grip accessories. With a strong tension mechanism and locking system, the Varipole is secured by its own force of pressure between solid walls or floors and ceilings. Adjustable between 6'11" (2.1 m) and 12'1" (3.7 m), the Deluxe Varipole is capable of turning most rooms into a photo studio without damage to walls or ceilings. The Varipole is available in black powder or brushed aluminum silver finishes.

This Varipole set comes with two Varipoles of the same color at a budget-friendly price and will allow you more capability and load bearing strength. Purchase a cross-bar to hang a complex lighting set-up for portraiture or even stage lighting.

Adjustable between 6'11" (2.1 m) and 12'1" (3.7 m).

    Impact VP-712BP reviews

    Deluxe Varipole Support System - Black (Pair) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I liked them so much I bought a second pair! I have four pairs of Autopole supports in my studio -- original Manfrotto poles, a short Matthews set, and two pairs of these Impact Varipoles. They get used for everything from holding up background paper systems to creating rigging for overhead speakers for surround sound systems. There is little difference between these and the Manfrottos, and I actually like the handle lock better on the Varipoles. I'm definitely a fan of the Impact grip gear all around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT solution for a tight space My studio is very narrow. I wanted a multi backdrop system, but it was very cramped difficult to properly fit a backdrop stand in the space. Because the Varipole system doesn't have legs that splay out, they were a much better fit. Furthermore, the fit is so stable and secure, I don't have to worry if a client (or a client's child) bumps into the system. There is no chance of it being knocked over because the pressure fit - which is VERY simple and easy to use - is tight and secure. I highly recommend this system to anyone!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product at the perfect price point I produce live music performance videos and needed an alternative to a tripod to situate cameras for fixed shot locations. Tripods take up too much floor space and, especially when unattended, are more vulnerable to getting knocked into. These Varipoles are perfect for securing a fixed mount location in the smallest of venues. They are heavy duty (and heavy, so be prepared), and secure firmly into place. I secure 2 cameras and LED lighting to the pole, accomplishing a lot in the smallest of space. They have soft plastic/rubber pads at each end so you don't do any damage to the floor or ceiling and are somewhat protected from vibration. The 6'x - 12'1 height range makes them suitable for a variety of settings assuming the location has a solid (not dropped), flat ceiling. PROS: - Great quality build - Solid mechanism to secure in place - Adjustable from 6' x - 12' 1 ceiling height - Extremely small footprint - Affordable price CONS: - Requires a solid flat ceiling - Relatively large and heavy for transport

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fair piece of equipment for the buck I'd give this 4/5 stars: I think the equipment is perfectly functional and performs the way it should. It's a bit on the heavy side which is good since we hang all sorts of equipment from it. I never had a problem yet in which the pole slides out or falls. We own 4 of these for our studio and have been happy with this so far. I'd recommend it - you'll save some money getting this brand compared to others and receive what I claim to be the same performance

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent polls I'm really happy with these autopoles. They are strong and lightweight and easy for a single person to set up a crossbar. Not so simple with using lightstands. The pole also has a tiny footprint so you can get really close to a wall for maximizing your working space or you can set up in the middle of an area and not worry about tripping hazards or needing to sandbag the stands to prevent knocking over. Very happy with Impact's quality as I usually am.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ones You Want There are other Floor to ceiling products that cost a lot more but leave you needing additional stuff to make them work. This Impact system comes complete with two poles that easily adjust for various height and work effortlessly even with pitched ceilings with two tension settings. Also can be used with drop ceilings with a additional purchase adapter made by Impact.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent construction These poles are very well made and are excellent value. I know it's become fashionable to be snarky about Impact equipment. The thing is, I'm a working pro in a business that has become really tough so if I can save some money without compromising critical functionality or quality I will! The construction and materials seem as good, if not better, than some poles I've used so I have to ask, why pay more? Perhaps the label on the other brand will help you make better photographs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick studio setup. The Varipoles save so much space when doing in-home makeshift studio work. Doesn't mar surfaces on floor or ceiling due to the rubber ends. Very secure in holding backgrounds up to 108. I bought the hooks and clamps to hang a crossbar. Super simple and fast. Breaks down in a few minutes. The poles are fairly long when collapsed so keep that in mind if you want to travel with the setup. So happy I purchased this. It makes shooting in my home so much easier.
