I know it said "heavy duty" in the title so I should have expected it, but this thing is REALLY heavy duty. While I haven't tried yet, I think you could easily mount a DSLR with lens to this for remote shooting or whatever. It's solid and good-quality.

This works, kind of. It is rated to hold 1.1lbs which it does but not in the position I want it to. For example, it will not hold a load in the position the picture shows it. It is of limited value to me. I should have gone with a magic arm.

    Comments about Impact BHE-102 Heavy Duty Flex Arm for Super Clamp:

    This flex arm is even more solid than I expected and it, along with the clamp, has allowed me to position my camera in out of the way yet intimate locations for shooting. It is also great for using with lights. I can't believe I've gone years without having one of these!

          I bought this for a 19" ring light so I can manipulate the ring better. Unfortunately, the ring light was too heavy for it and could not hold it in place.

              This thing is extremly handy, it's fairly rigid yet pliable to mount flashes to light modifiers with ease.

              Stronger than it looks

              Comments about Impact BHE-102 Heavy Duty Flex Arm for Super Clamp:

              Heavy duty is right. I bought this for use with my Alien Bee strobes and it has more than enough strength to hold the lights in any position — hanging from walls, raters, etc. (with clamp, bough separately)

              Strong arm but soft threads

              Comments about Impact BHE-102 Heavy Duty Flex Arm for Super Clamp:

              This item is strong and can hold a fair amount of weight but the thread on the end are soft. I used it once and when hand tightening it the thread sheared off. So be gentle and it will do the job

                Exactly what I need - a sturdy but malleable support for my cards etc that I need to control exposure and neutral grey conditions. Works better than the Plamp

                Bigger and heavier than I expected but happy about it. I'm using it to support a Lilliput 5" monitor with a big battery. Combined weight is easily more than the specified max of 1.1lb and the arm has no trouble supporting it.

                    Works well for speedlights and positioning gobos and reflectors. Just keep the weight capacity in mind.

                    Flexes to easily with any kind of weight at the end of it. It's good for a scrim or white card but not anything to weighty.

                        Needed a pair of these to hold strobes or LED lights for use with a microscope. They are attractive, of good quality, and quite strong although easily adjustable. Much better than the "Plamp" type holders for my purposes.
