Impact Deluxe Varipole Reviews

Very useful for many applications

Never gave Varipoles much thought until I read an article about other ways to use them. These are dy-no-mite as some has-been, washed up actor says on TV. When not in use in my studio, I use them in my office as a stand for my light panels. I was worried they might crack/break my ceiling but, so far, all seems to be working well. I like the Impact two pole pack since I would have bought a second as soon as I realized how useful they can be.

Fantastic

I really wanted 2 auto poles. These Impact ones may not quite be an Autopole, but they are very close. They don't air chion down when the pole collapses, but for the price difference, I can live without that. The finish is good, they work in tight between walls or between ceiling and wall. Ice hung lights up to and aputure 300D from them with good results. I purchased the cross bar pieces and mafer clamps and put together a nice rig to hang over a table for product video shots. They seem to be very solid. Every studio or indie filmmaker should get a pair! I only wish Impact made a short varipole for bathroom and smaller room use.

Cinematic Swiss Army knife!!!!

We just used these in a studio we built for a client. We made a hole in the drywall ceiling for the pole to pass through...so they go from the floor to the concrete ceiling, holding some fairly heavy lights. They were easy to work with, are well designed, and look nice.

good

Small Studio Space and Time Saver

By Trevor

It may not seem like much but being able to get my backdrop at least 18 closer to the wall gives me some extra room. Not only are these space savers but they are much more stable than using a regular stand. It is also much easier to hang backdrops using these in combination with the Impact Super Clamps, Impact U-Hook Cross Bar Holders, and the Impact Heavy-Duty 9' Adjustable Background Crossbar rather than putting a crossbar on two stands and having to go back and forth raising each stand a little at a time.

I’d like one longer and one shorter size. Is it possible to cut down to a shorter size with a pipe cutter?
Asked by: Eugene
I just checked and while I've not actually done this, I think as long as you cut from the bottom (removable foot) section which is longer, you should be fine provided you don't need to remove too much length.

I have a drywall ceiling. Will this be secure enough without breaking the drywall or do I need to ensure that there is a stud behind the contact point?
Asked by: Mike
You will have to use your judgement as construction varies. Personally I've used it with drywall ceilings and three rolls not having a stud over them.

I tested mine out with my slanted ceiling and it seems to work but I would still go with wedges as I am not sure what the safety or long term wear on the system might be. My ceiling is slanted, drywall with a slight texture.

question

What kind of accessories do I buy to turn this into a backdrop support..is that even possible
Asked by: Serena B.
Yes the autopoles can be used as a backdrop support. You need to buy 2 Impact Super Clamps w/ Ratchet Handle (IMCC106R) and one package (which contains a pair) or the Impact U-Hook Cross Bar Holders (IMVPAUP). You will also need to buy a cross bar that exceeds the width of the backdrop. The cross bar will rest on the two U-Hooks.
