Has anyone used a arm similar to this

Connected to a tripod in order to have a flexible boom for a flash with a small softbox? Just wondering if it's feasible or if that would be too much weight for the arm

You linked to a Plamp, which I have, and no way would it support the weight. I suspect the same of the Gorilla pod arm as I have the more robust Manfrotto snake and it really isn't strong enough either

I have made a boom arm from various RAM components.

I use a 15mm rail setup to position flash or lights for macro and studio stuff. Can move lights in/out/tilt/swivel and camera forwards/backwards. Rock solid!
