Avenger Black Boom Reviews

Quality build, value price


from Tampa Bay, Florida  -  Photo Enthusiast

After much researching I bought this unit because it offers variable leangth with higher load rating. Be prepared with 25 lb sand bag when extending to full leangth to counter balance properly, using the combination of 10 and 15lb bags is better. Excellent build, quality shows. Needed about 8.5 lbs rating but decided a higher rated boom.. Great value for the rated load handling ability.


Heavy Metal


from Los Angeles, Calif.  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Works well. You have to remember a bit of physics to use it properly and safely, but it's good to get the brain working in that area again. My only wish is that the adjustment pieces had a little resistance, almost like an air-cushion feel. Otherwise, it's great.


Solid and heavy. Great for heavy strobes


from Markham, Ontario  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this boom to go with my Bowens Esprit Gemini 500WS strobe which is rather heavy (approx 8 lbs). When weighted and balanced on a heavy duty light stand, it locks down tight and there is no flexing. Feels solid even when suspended 9.5' above my subject. Keep in mind the length and weight of this boom isn't great for travelling. Good for studio or location shoots where you can set up once. Make sure to have a stand sturdy enough to handle the combined weight of your accessories and counter-weight. Depending on your strobe, you may want to look at the Avenger F830 or the Avenger E700 swivel so you can hang your light instead of having it rotate freely on the boom's bare spigot.

Great Boom


from Charlotte, NC  -  Pro Photographer

This is a great boom, I use it on an Avenger 5029 stand. I have use it on numerous Avenger stands including the A5017 and A5033 as well. The boom comes with a built in attachment that will mount to most light stands. I use this boom for an Alien Bee 800 light/flash and a Beauty Dish and yes it does of course have to be sandbagged as well, I use approximately 40 pounds of sand in 2 twenty pound bags. I have used other mods on this boom as well such as very large octaboxes. Great product...

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CRAIG S  It's a strong well-built boom, able to hold my Profoto Acute 2/D4 heads with a 3x4' soft box or Profoto beauty dish with no issues. ...even at near full extension.
Shopper  Hello. I wanted to know if the Avenger Black Mini Boom Extends from 46" to 83" is compatible with Lastolite stands and if it would hold a cobra light mounted on an Ezybox. If the Avenger Black Mini Boom Extends from 46" to 83" is not suitable. Do you guys have other options for this set up? Cheers.
CRAIG S  I have no idea. I don't have a Cobra light, nor a Lastolite stand.
Scott B  I am buying this for the Avenger A5033, wheeled stand. What do I need to mount the boom arm on to the Avenger A5033?
CRAIG S  Hi Scott, You don't need any additional knuckles to mount this particular boom to a stand. It has the attachment built into the arm.
