I need a reflector holder for a 47" reflector.

I'm looking at these two options:

http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …and_Reflector_H​older.html (external link)

http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …opic_Litedisc_H​older.html (external link)

The first comes with a stand, which is nice as long as the holder works well.

For the second one I'd use an old, cheap tripod as the support.

Any recommendations?

Thanks,
David

I bought Impact version from B&H which broke after a month or so.

Currently I am using this one (external link) from Westcott and so far its holding up.

I've been using the Photoflex for many years. Durable and very well made. Heavier than others. If anything, I wish the clips were a little smaller because you don't need that much strength to hold collapsible reflectors. On the other hand, it easily holds other panels like foam core and plexiglas which others do not.

I'm also using the Photoflex holder for it's versatility in holding different materials. I've given up on the included swivel clamp though, as mine just doesn't clamp very tight. I've had much better luck with either a grip head or a Manfrotto boom arm clamp. They hold solid with no droop.
