The item arrived just in time for a session I had, and I put it to test. the light stand is really heavy, no cheap materials, you can trust on it. I was working on a bad weather and I didn't need any sand bag, although with a heavy wind you may need it. About the reflector, I used all the options! The weather was crazy, it went from rainy and cold to heavy sun, so I had to go to the different options, from reflecting light, warming it, to diffuse it and block it.
I honestly can say I am really happy with this product, really good materials, and the price is the best. the size is really good because it gives you a wider range.
CowboyStudio is a great store, I bought this reflector along with a lighting kit and remotes, and all the items are great. You can buy with confidence.
1) The Reflector Disc
2) The Stand / Grip Head
The first part of the item is great. The reflector disc is MASSIVE and worked wonders as a diffuser for hard light. It folds up into a compact disc for easy stowing.
It's the hardware that is far below satisfactory. The stand is fine, it's obviously not top quality, but it's very easy to use and works very well if used in conjunction with a few sandbags. I have no complaints with the stand, none more than are already touched upon by past reviews.
What is most disappointing is that the arm / grip gear is completely different than what you see pictured. The gear head, for one, is not dual as shown in the pictures. It's a single grip gear head and, as a result, can hardly support the weight of the arm and reflector. The weight of it all falls on one screw, and since the grip head is made out of plastic it appears it's only a matter of time before the plastic gives way and cracks.
The reflector arm is also black, not silver, but that hardly is noteworthy since the bulk of the item is hid behind a massive diffuser.
Eventually, I just couldn't use the arm because it wasn't stable. It was nearly impossible to adjust the angle of the reflector because the arm was giving way to the weight of the disc.
Amazon, as always, came out like a champ and refunded me half the order since there was no replacement in stock. I can't say if this was a bad batch that slipped by QC; however I did order TWO of these and BOTH had this problem.

The same cannot be said when used outdoors. Because where the sun shines cannot be controlled with respect to where you want the shots, it becomes quite a challenge to adjust and get the right angle/position/direction with a single grip head and the reflector/screen being held by only two edge points. The translucent screen is even harder to be held/set-up in place by the boom arm without falling when it needs to be placed it high (over the subject/model’s head) to filter/block the sun (avoiding eye squinting and reducing/softening the intensity of sun light). The lack of a counterweight (although you can purchase this separately and attach to the opposite end of the boom arm) can lead to disasters when the wind blows (even with a slight breeze, the entire setup can fall over). If you’re really serious about using these outdoors, you may want to invest more in sturdier (albeit, not as compact to carry/set-up as this) set-ups that professional photographers and videographers use. You can/will quickly realize why professional photographers and videographers have assistants holding these reflectors/screens for outdoor photo sessions :)
