A sturdy, easy to use Quilt Stand, too!

I ordered five of these to use as Quilt Stands. We were able to raise the heavy quilts to the full 10' 6" without any issues. The price cannot be beat - a quilt supply company sells a smaller stand for twice as much wholesale! Your should advertise these in quilt magazines.

NOT AS DESCRIBED. I purchased this background system to use on location and in people's homes for portrait photography. The background cross-bar came in three, NOT four sections. The instructions even showed it as a four section twist-and-lock system. It came as a three section push-and-maybe-tighten-a-metal-plug. Every time I tried to put two sections together, the metal plug insert would slide down into the first section and not seat itself properly to the second section. I contacted custom...

I contacted customer service twice by phone and was sent to voicemail both times. I left a detailed message each time approximately two weeks apart and never got a response from them. The return policy posted online would have me paying shipping both ways to return it which would equal half the total cost of the system in the first place. The support stands are heavy duty, so I will make use of them and buy a cross bar from someone else.

Decent Supports

By

from Baltimore, MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

These supports are pretty sturdy, but not bulletproof. The stands are big, stable, and great quality. The weakness is in the crossbar. The first one I received was drilled incorrectly and wouldn't mount on the stands properly. The replacement was correct, but the crossbar is still a bit flimsy when all three sections are attached. It is great that you can use only 2 of the sections for smaller backgrounds.

Great weight is good no worry of it failing down or blowing over if used out side.

Quality Issues. stay away

By

from NY  -  Casual Photographer

Bought this to replace my 5 year old Flashpoint system. The one with 3 extensions they show on the site. However when I received my order I found it was a different model (with 2 extensions)that is not as well made in my opinion. cheap tip with a cheap wingnut. rough metal. flakey paint.. also will not fit in the bag till the spring is compressed. called them to return and specified that I was looking for the other type. They said they had located that specific unit and will ship it out.. When it arrived it was the same one that I had gotten the week earlier with the same shoddy workmanship. both bags had mildew / mold spots on them. and both zippers were broken too. looked like they had been in somebody's basement for years. returned them both and purchased a Ravelli ABSL. Couldn't be happier. It oozes quality and the bag isn't a joke. def more heavy duty than what I need, but I see this one lasting a while

Excellent value

By

from New York  -  Pro Photographer

I normally use autopoles but bought these for a shoot in a studio with very high ceilings. The backdrop set up quickly, was very portable, and sturdy enough to handle the 107" seamless for a 3 day shoot. The air cushion is nice but not the best quality. I don't mind that the cross bar isn't telescoping...I actually think it's better because it much stronger. I understand that this set won't last forever but it's the right price and just what I need for on location jobs.

Excellent. Will buy more.

By

Product is sturdy, well built, and comes with a durable bag. For the price, this is very satisfying. My studio will be purchasing at least 2 more of these for the road.

Good for price point

By

from New York, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This background stand is definitely what I was looking for when I went to Adorama unsure of what would be the best fit for me. An associate helped me choose this stand and I am please with it. Although it is easy to assemble I had to ask my model to help me align the top cross bar correctly. The instructions indicate that there should be arrows on the bars where they should line up and click in - when aaid arrow markers were actually non existant. One of the bars didn't even click in right. Aside all that, it did hold up the seamless paper perfectly but I wish that one of the bars had the option of being shorter in terms of the width. The height was easily adjustable. What I was most upset over was the fact that the bag was ripped by the top near the zipper when I had just opened the box!! Thankfully Adorama said they would replace it so I'm heading there tomorrow to do so. I'm glad the stand functions as intended but those few hiccups were dissapointing.

Good, heavy-duty background stand

By

from Abilene, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is a very durable background support stand. I use it for product photography and portraits. It's not perfect; The only con I see is that I would do something a bit different with the top of the stands like put a standard light stand pin on top so they could do double-duty as light stands. As it is, there;s just a threaded bolt. The bolt fits into holes in the crossbar, and the whole thing is tightened with a wingnut. The carrying case is top-notch. I can't see how the background support won't last for a long, long time.

Broke after first use!

By

from St. Louis, MO  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This backdrop stand has a stripped screw after just one time putting it up and taking it down. I haven't had this thing one week! When I put it together it seemed reasonably decent (considering the low price)... aside from the cross bar, which had flakes of cheap metal coming off the ends. The cross bar also ONLY extends at the full 10 feet length, when the description says "extend to 10' across". This is not the case. The bar does not extend. It simply IS 10 ft across when assembled. Do not buy this poor quality product.

Awesome product for the price!

By

from Downingtown, PA  -  Pro Photographer

I am loving this product! It is way better than I thought it was going to be for the price. If you are starting out or need something portable I 100% recommend this. Sturdy but still light weight
