Sturdy and lightweight

20171216: I don't like giving a rating on things the day I get them (and I generally don't find those 1st day ratings by others to be too useful).
I've used this for a few different shoots now. It is reasonably light and strong. It is nice to have the the shoes. The only drawback I've found is the size of the knobs for tightening. All in all though, very serviceable.
As of this writing, I have only attached this to a light stand, not to my camera. I can't really envision a scenario where I would put it on my camera - maybe for video. I use this primarily to hold an umbrella, one or two flashes, and an LED light so I can see (think modeling light but not built in).
