    Impact FB-230L reviews

    Twin Shoe Metal Umbrella Bracket is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Limited to medium and small umbrellas When I received this item I found at the very end of the instructions that this item cannot be used with umbrellas larger than 45. That's pretty limiting especially for an item intended for use with multiple flashes. It would be nice to include such an important limitation in the item description. I'm disappointed that B&H doesn't insist on more complete descriptions

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product looked so good on the B&H web site I bought 2 I am very impressed with the machining and construction of this produced. I expected plastic and I was pleasantly surprised with machined Aluminum and chrome plated steel. Impact makes really sturdy photo / video equipment that is going to last a very long time. Thank you to all of the folks at B&H for all of your quick service and great equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my Canon 600EX-RT and 600EX II-RT I was looking for a bracket that I could put 2 Canon 600EX-RT flashes on, after seeing another photographer use 2 flashes for more power (or the same power with longer battery life). This bracket works perfect for a pair of flashes on a light weigh stand (I'm using a portable background stand). Comes with all the hardware you need to mount to your studio strobe stand or background stand. Give you great flexibility for tilting the flashes where you want them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Twin Shoe Bracket This is a great way to double the number of speedlites firing into an umbrella for larger group shots. The bracket seems to be well made and is strong. I was surprised to read in the information accompanying the product that it is only recommended for umbrellas up to 45-inches. Luckily my intended use was with 45-inch umbrellas. I wish the umbrella tightening knob could hold the umbrella stem a bit tighter so the umbrellas didn't spin as much, but it should work out just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash bracket for using two speedlights On occasion I need the extra power of two speedlights for outdoor shoots and this works perfectly. Easy to set up and holds the flashes very securely. Small & light, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well machined, solid bracket. Holds two speed lights in umbrella when I need extra output. Does the job just fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from sturdy When the bracket arrived one of the flash mounts was incredibly tight. I almost sent it back. I worked it for a long time and finally got it to loosen. Other than that it's sturdy and will come in handy when one speedlight is not enough. Nice to have when you need more output balancing flash with bright ambient light. To tilt loosen knob and pull to desired position and tighten. Seems secure. It would have been five stars if it was useable out of the box.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, does the job This bracket is nicely made (all metal construction except for the knobs) and works well. My only complaint is that the knob for tightening the umbrella holder is rather small and right underneath the bar that holds the flash shoes. So it can be a little difficult to turn, and that's why I'm giving the unit only four stars instead of 5. Also, you can't change the side to side angle of the two flash shoes without a hex key wrench if you're so inclined. Since the flash shoes are open on both ends, for extra security you should not only tighten the shoes with the set screw but you should also use whatever tightening device there is on the shoe on the flash itself. This will make it a lot less likely that the flash might slip out. FYI, this is not something that is particular to this bracket alone, but a feature that just about all shoe mount brackets have.
