Upside-Down Boom Arm End Piece (driving me crazy)

I can't think of the name, but I'm looking for a piece for the end of my boom that'll hold my beauty dish, etc, from the top so that the dish is essential "hanging" rather than "sticking" out from the end of the boom.

I'm sure it's an adapter, but I can't think of the name of it to start my search ("boom arm end piece hanger upside-down thing" sadly yields nothing)

Check out the photo of what I'm looking for here on the Mola blogexternal link


Thank you.

Almost the same, Bobbyz, but that's a double female. I need at least one side to be male.

For boom use, the drop down pin is the better choice, Bobby. Here's Why:

The drop down pin will remain vertical when the boom arm is tilted upward while the swivel pin will not.

I went with this one: LINKexternal link

The baby would have worked great, I'm sure, but most of the time I have a Mola Setti and a Profoto D1 hanging on this - In addition to the weight, I need it to not be the weakest link.

What exactly is the advante of the E710 vs the E700 ? I see some extra stuff on it but not sure what it does, the connection to the stand and the light fixture seems to be roughly the same, meaning it'll hold the same weight, and i'm fairly positive i could hang onto the E700 if i ever needed to, not that the stand or boom would support it, but the pin itself probably would.

Looks beefier. I don't know.. if it doesn't add anything, I'll return it and get the baby

Do you think the silver setti will be OK?

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

Wish I would have known that.. Well, I have 30 days to return it.. I can pick up the baby locally.

Thanks, FJ
