Will this work with the x drop system that came ...

Will this work with the x drop system that came with the 5x12’ drop? I don’t need a longer drop and would prefer to go with 5x7’ for my second drop. The description says this 5x7’ works with the 5x7’ system but looks like the same only no material for a “floor drop”
Asked by: Sunshine
Yes it will. There is one X-Drop frame (Westcott Part #570X) and both the 5x7 and 5x12 work with that frame.

Can you this be used with other backdrops?

Can you this be used with other backdrops?
Asked by: Savannah
The Westcott X-Drop Pro Wrinkle-Resistant Sweep Backdrop stand has hooks for the grommets to put it on. If you will do DIY backdrop - you will be able to place it on the stand, but at the moment we do not carry any off brand backdrops with that type of mounting.

Is the White a pure white? Does it bounce light well, or does light pass through it? I will be using this as a reflector for photographing rooms.

Is the stand for the 8x13 kit the same as the 8x8 kit?
Asked by: Nick
The Westcott X-Drop Pro Water-Resistant Backdrop Sweep Kit (High-Key White, 8 x 13') BH #WE877SK has a train for going under the subject. The frame supporting it is the same as the 8x8' Kit.

can the 8x8 be mounted on the Westcott Scrim Jim 8x8 frame? This green screen doesn't have the Velcro that scrim fabrics have.
Asked by: Ismaeel
No, the Westcott X-Drop Pro Wrinkle-Resistant Backdrop (Chroma-Key Green, 8 x 8') would not fit to a Westcott 8 x 8 Scrim Jim frame properly.

Can this be hung with clamps from a regular backdrop setup?
Asked by: Cheryl
The Westcott X-Drop Fabric Backdrop (Parchment Paper, 5 x 7') BH #WE643F was designed for the X-Drop frame, but it also has a rod pocket for use with traditional background support systems.

can you use a weight on this stand to stabilize?

can you use a weight on this stand to stabilize?
Asked by: Susan
This is designed to be very lightweight. I would not advise weighting it. As it is it is, it holds up quite well but if you need to use it in the wind I would suggest a different system. Personally I wouldn’t use any backdrop in any type of wind. Other than that I can’t see a need to weight it.
