I'm pretty happy with this boom stand extension arm.
Shauncho
One of the knobs had the hole (for the screw)completely sealed by something looks like melted plastic preventing from tightening, so it is useless.
RZ
Better than I expected... a little bit of a pain to get it adjusted but it works well.

Pros: reasonable cost, comes with a sandbag and attachment carabiner, has a quick release for the strobe/modifier.

Cons: clamp is plastic (although good plastic), collapsed size is still 4', sandbag not very practical

The clamp has four different sized holes you can put a pole though. The smallest diameter hole it will accommodate is about 20mm and the largest is about 30mm. Use the largest hole that will still allow you to clamp it down on your light stand. This boom/clamp will not work with the cheap 7' light stands that are widely available, the top section of the stand is too small to fit the clamp at 16.5mm, and the combined weight of the boom system is far too great.

With the pole extended, you will need a counter balance weight in the 10-20lb range bringing the weight of the system (boom, clamp, strobe, modifier, counter balance weight) into the 20-30lb range. I have tested it successfully on the 9' and 12' Cowboy studio stands, as well as the Revelli 10' stand. You will need to sandbag your stand as it won't be stable with the boom.

Even though the clamp appears to be the same on both sides, it isn't. One side is for the light stand and one is for the boom. See my pictures to get the setup done correctly. I highly suggest marking the clamp to save yourself time down the road if you will not be leaving it setup permanently. I marked where the boom goes, as well the where the light stand pole goes for the diameters I will likely use.

The pole is in two sections, it collapses down to 4' and extends to about 6.5'. The base section is 30mm in diameter. The strobe end uses a standard 5/8" attachment point with the far end 1/4 threaded similar to most light stands. It also has a quick release which is handy.

Style Name: 501 boom arm Verified Purchase
I figured for the price I paid for this, it would end up being a bit on the thin and light side. I wasn't expecting a boom that seems to be of the same heavy and sturdy build of boom arms costing twice as much. This thing means business. In fact, I'm now going to have to buy a heavy duty light stand with which to use it, because my regular ones will definitely groan under this thing's weight and reach. That's not a bad thing at all, mind you.

Also, the picture and description didn't seem to indicate that it comes with a counterweight bag, but it did. That was a very nice surprise, as I was dreading having to order one separately, since they only seem to come in costly sets of three or more.

I'm very impressed with this thing already, and I haven't even used it yet. But, I've been in this business long enough to know a good thing when I get my hands on it, and this is a very good thing, especially for the price.

Style Name: 501 boom arm Verified Purchase
Note that my 5 stars take into consideration that I didn't have to pay $150 for this - I give it 5 stars because it is a great bargain, a very useful piece of equipment and even better than I expected considering the price. It is mostly metal except for the mounting bracket, which is of a high strength plastic. I don't worry about the plastic piece breaking - they used the plastic in the best way on this boom, anyplace else and it might cheapen it too much. There are 4 sizes on the mounting bracket for each side (one side goes on the stand, and one on the boom arm), so it should fit most any size stand. Somebody commented that you need to mark which side of the bracket goes where - I don't know why you would, the sides of the mount are interchangeable and the mounting bracket can be rotated so that it doesn't matter which side goes on the stand, and visa versa. There is an eye on the end for the sand bag - the whole arrangement seems to work well. Sure, you can spend more money and get those multiple size weights that clamp onto the boom arm, but that costs more money than I need to spend on this. The clamps for extending are all metal and look like they will last. The tip on the end can be detached - a nice feature to have. I had to adjust the tension on one of the clamps, but that isn't a big hassle. One nice addition would be a carrying case. It's not high-end studio gear for big lights, but that should be obvious. Overall - I'd highly recommend this boom!

Pretty good for the price so far...but its still limited by the price. You're mostly getting what you pay for here, no miracle deal. The clamp is plastic...down to the load bearing parts. There's no grips on it to keep it in place so you have to tighten it which concerns me given its...plastic. Don't know how long it will last, but it functions.

But hey. Its cheap as heck.

Style Name: short boom arm Verified Purchase
I bought this for holding a beauty dish. It has plastic hardware and the thumbscrew that holds it to the light stand broke as I was setting up for my shoot. Not thrilled, even for the $30 range it's not worth the money.

Style Name: short boom arm Verified Purchase
As other reviews I plan to write will say, studio equipment has made great advances in quality in the past 15 years...and prices for quality equipment are a fraction of what they used to be.

Since much of my photography takes place outside my regular studio, and a lot of it is stock, including still lifes, I decided to set up a home studio for moments of impromptu inspiration, and this is part of the plan.

It seems sturdy enough to hold a 250ws monolight with a 24X36" soft box, which is pretty much overkill for a home studio. Thanks to Cowboy Studios and a few other manufacturers, with pieces like this, I've been able to create a home studio with either continuous or flash, and two portable studios for less than $1,000.00!

You don't even want to know what I paid for the Norman setup I have in my regular studio...and so far, I feel like someone could rob me, and all I'd have to do is take my home set-ups and no one, including me would see the difference in quality!

This may be a small piece, but I'm thrilled by the whole situation!
