    X-Drop Backdrop Stand for 5 x 7' Backdrop is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from REAL JUNK and costly ! For a very cool and convienent answer to many close quarter issues, this is not what you ll want on a pro shoot. The rivets fall out after 3 shoots, and the plastic collars don't work much longer. When you email Westcott customer service, they don't get back to you. Kinda sad and feels like once they have your money .. your on your own. The muslins that you buy for this unit.. are costly, but worth it.. only of it would have stayed together longer. Its a bummer... i m looking for a design change or another company that would have something like this... when its new.. has a light weight feel.. and thats great.. the falling apart i was not thinned with. Sorry for the bad review.. but man.. with all the great options out there.. Westcott has some cool stuff.. and this could have been one of them..:(Joe Mitzen, Mitzen Photography Somerset NJ

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak, wide footprint. This backdrop uses very spindly, weak arms attached to a center hub. The leg and bottom two arms are similarly weak. The back leg spreads pretty far from the front fabric, resulting in a rather large footprint. Thus it cannot be placed against flat a wall; rather you need to account for at least 2 extra feet of space behind the backdrop. Due to the thin nature of the legs, I wouldn't want this in an area a client could trip on it as it would bring the whole backdrop down. Many venues I've worked do not have the space to sacrifice for this, making this backdrop my least favorite option. A traditional pair of stands and crossbar are just as easy to setup, stronger, an can take less floorspace. The only good thin=g I can say about the X-Drop is the variety of nice background patterns available. So buy the fabric part and just clip it to stands.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted for one shoot Unfortunately, most of the reviews are accurate...this is a flimsy product that should not be used with students. Yes it is lightweight, but the joints failed almost immediately and the device was rendered entirely useles, We repurposed the green screen cloth and accepted the loss. Purchased a much stronger and more rugged twin-base stand that is holding up very well. Save yourself the aggravation and lost cash and pass on this product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for use with students This is a good idea, but extremely fragile...it should only be used by adults, set up by adults and used by adults. Our students unfortunately, broke the stand the first time it was used. There are other much more durable products that will work better with a younger audience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and very practical I've using the X-Drop for a few months now. All the points in the negative reviews are true but the purpose of this device is to be very light and easy to transport and assemble, and it really exceeds expectations in this regard. Changing the height of the back leg allows to place it very close to a wall. It might get a bit less stable but if set close to a wall it won't be an issue. It's very easy and super fast to assemble and I didn't find it that fragile, if you want it light it won't be very sturdy.The backdrops are quite wrinkle free and compact for transport. If a 5 backdrop is enough width for the job then the X-Drop is by far a better practical solution than using two poles with a bar and still the backdrops will work with a bar system too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast! Lightweight! This was a great deal so I thought I'd give it a try. Great surprise! It really is lightweight and easy to put together. I didn't expect anything fancy but rather, something practical and easy for me to move around and set up quickly. It's not an upscale version but the bottom line is, I can take great photos with it in a hurry and in just about any location (indoors) and that's just what I needed. Don't throw it around or be careless with it and it will serve you well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable convenient setup Very simple setup, very portable. This is a much better solution for head shots and 3/4 portraits than 2 stands and a crossbeam setup. Fits in a small bag and weights almost nothing. I can set this up in 2 minutes and have a great wrinkle free backdrop using the 5x7 backdrop from Westcott. I also drape other fabrics over the stand for variety. Clever design which makes traveling with a backdrop pain free.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, but i don't expect it to last I purchased the X-drop for our studio because we occasionally shoot indoors on location. The X-drop backgrounds are fantastic, but the stand itself feels very light weight and cheap. I'm sure I'll be replacing it before the year is over, but it's hard to complain about considering it's a portable plug and play backdrop solution
