You couldn't ask for a simpler, sturdier stand to assemble and disassemble within minutes to get the job done. Worth every penny!

It's very easy to set up and is also very portable which is the reason I bought it. I would give it a 5 star but the aluminum and the control clips are very light weight, and it will work for my purposes it will not stand up to rigorous use

GREAT idea -- poor execution/materials

This is such an easy setup. Its lightweight and portable. The price is reasonable. The backdrops are fantastic. Having said all of that, I used it 4 or 5 times before it started falling apart. Im careful with my gear. I packed this into the original bag every single time. The rivets fall out, the plastic collars stop working, etc. I have managed to keep it together with gaffers tape for now, but when youre on location, the last thing you want is equipment failure. Hopefully Westcott will improve the design. I would pay more for a product that lasts.

Great design but FRAGILE!!!

This backdrop is great for 1 person headshots indoors. You cannot shoot outdoors with this unless there is no wind whatsoever. Also, this stand takes up a decent amount of space. When it is against a wall it still comes out about 36inches from the wall. It is a quick and easy setup and is feather light with a great non wrinkle fabric design. Unfortunately, it is so fragile that any weight on top of it while in its bag will bend or break the legs. I have had to go to ACE Hardware, drill out the cheap rivets holding the legs to the stand, and replace them with sturdy screws. I love this product, but please make a version for pros that stands up to professional use. This is my third purchase of this product in a year because the other two have broken. There are no other products like it, so I am stuck replacing it every year or so. A cautious recommendation....

Great idea but poor quality...Will not last

I ordered this item because I thought that a lightweight and very portable backdrop solution would be a great option for some off site shoots. Upon receiving this item however I noticed how poorly made it was. In fact my example was already broke in the center portion which will hold the extensions. Ok so I received a bad example and these things happen however it was clear to see that this item would not last long. The screen that must be ordered separately was also of poor quality. It was very thin and light. This could NOT be used outside or in a professional situation. I have other Westcott items that I feel are good value but they missed the mark on this one. I returned the item to BH and have received great customer service as always from them so far. I will be looking for a better solution even if it is not as portable. It is very likely that this item will not survive the trip to your location shoot. I gave the item two stars because of concept but a low score due to execution.

Great concept, less robust

I have been using this item for 3 years now, assembling and disassembling at least once a week. The material is not the most robust but if you don't toss it around carelessly it will last. I would have given 5 stars if it was most robust, but then price would have suffered.

Fairly convenient but poorly made

Over the past year, I used this on 4 shoots. I loved that it was lightening fast to set up and overlooked the enormous footprint because of that. On my most recent shoot, the entire frame collapsed. It was well and truly busted and impossible to repair. This was my first time using it outdoors, but it was a virtually wind-free day, as evidenced by zero movement on the fabric on my tent. I'm very disappointed with the quality for the price.

Quick to assemble

This stand is light and quick to assemble and break down. It is a bit flimsy but if handled with care should last a very long time.

Can this stand be used for 5x12' backdrop?
Asked by: Xiao
Yes it can. Both the 5x7 and 5x12 X-Drop options go on the same stand (Westcott Part #570X). The 5x12 option sweeps out onto the floor while the 5x7 option stays completely vertical.

can i use other brand's backdrop? or Vinyl backdrop?
Asked by: alice
I'm not sure since I haven't tried that; however the other brands would need to have the grommets in the right place to hook onto the stand to keep the backdrop tight.
