Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Two Prism 10x20', 100% Cotton Muslin Backdrops and The Ravelli Full Size 10x12' Background Stand Set (Electronics)
This kit is remarkable. You get more than your money's worth. It comes shipped in separate boxes and I'll review the product that same way.
The build quality of the stand is very solid. It can handle the weight of the heaviest muslins. It's also extremely easy to put together. It came with instructions but I didn't need them... and no I've never put one of these together before. The crossbar is made of four 3' pieces which can be combined to create either a 6', 9' or 12' crossbar. It would be great to get one piece that you could telescope for a bit more flexibility but I think this model gives the unit more strength to support heavier muslins. The storage bag for the stand is VERY good quality. The zipper is a bit peculiar as there are parts where two zippers come together but it's not perfect. You may want to be careful if you're traveling in the rain as this leaves a bit of an opening at the ends.
10' X 20' BLACK & WHITE MUSLINS
These muslins are enormous. The only thing is you can kinda see through the muslins at certain angles. That's the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars. The cloth could have been a bit thicker. They did come packed very well with a storage bag each for both white and black backdrops. You will have to iron out the wrinkles but I'd assume any shipped muslin would have that same issue. The muslin storage bags aren't amazing quality, but they definitely do the job. FYI, the muslin cloths are not stored in the backdrop stand bag (they are too big).
All in all, I highly recommend this item. In the past, I've ordered some studio items that I was very disappointed in the quality. That is not the case here. It's very well made and it's all you'll need.
