Hello all. I am starting to get more requests for studio style portraits, and thus, it's about time to look into a real background support system instead of my PVC one. Anyone have a recommendation for one? I was looking at this one, but it only goes to 9' wide. Don't most muslins and BG run at 10' wide?

I've got THIS ONE, or something very similar. It's pretty good and I like that it packs up nicely into the travel bag.

I have this one http://www.canogacamera.com/detail.aspx?ID=35478
I bought it from them as well. the legs on this thing are built like a ox. it will hold 12' wide backgrounds and will go over 12' tall so this thin can set up huge or it can go as small as about 4' x 4' . the biggest down fall is the pack down length is around 4' and 6" around so other then the four foot it is really good. Photoflex also has a pretty good web page with some decent pics and explanations on each individual pice you may also want to check it out as well http://www.photoflex.com/Photoflex_Products/ProDuty_BackDrop_Support_Kit/index.html
Happy hunting there are a ton of choices
