I thought I would revisit this to give my thoughts after using it for some time. I was tempted to raise my rating to five stars because frankly, it has been working like a champ. It is strong and sturdy and I like it a lot. I decided not to raise the rating however as I still think that relying on a spring clamp was a bad choice. Mine has been installed in the same place ever since I bought it -- the spring might not fare as well if I was constantly putting it on and taking it off as I imagine some people do. But for me, it is working well and I am very glad I bought it.
Let's review from the bottom up-
-The clamp works pretty easily the black rubberized part on the left of the product image works like a clothes pin. squeeze it and it opens. It can get pretty wide, too. I have a heavy duty hi-hat stand, and it's able to get around it and grab it well.
-The Knob--after you've got the clamp attached to your stand, just turn the knob until it's tight. This does seem to take an awfully long time due to the way the clamp moves. The knob moves smoothly and it's not a problem, just a little more twisting than I'd like to do.
The Arm-- the tiny little arm that goes from the clamp to the cup is legit. It's wider than it looks in the picture (not thicker, but wider). It's also welded together firmly, and it is SOLID. once the holder is clamped and tightened all the bouncing I could do on an old stage with a shaky floor couldn't rock this thing enough to spill a drop.
The Cup-- my first reaction was that the cup was too big. I was under the impression that I could shake the holder, and I was afraid that a beer bottle would rattle and pop out. I was wrong. the cup is big enough that a solo cup will fit, but small enough that a bottle or can won't tip over. The inside of the cup has a felt like textured bottom so that the drink doesn't slide around, and the top edge of the cup is turned outward to help guide a beverage into the cup when it's hiding under your cymbals.
All in all- This is a heavy duty product, but that means that it's solid enough that you shouldn't need to replace it. I'll be buying another one for my practice kit.
I've used it as a backpack only a few times, but the straps seem pretty sturdy. It's definitely a relief to have backpack bag when carrying a lot of gear to and from my car, practice space, etc. I can also fit a lot of extra sticks and quarter inch cables in the outside zipper pocket and that's a big plus. In the past, my bags have had circular pockets. This rectangular pocket seems more sensible, but I really don't like how thick/deep the pocket is. It's just as width-deep as the cymbal bag part is!
