OK System, Think hard before deciding
Pros: Bolts and Nuts on I-Truss,Easy Setup
Cons: Poor Materials,Weak,Weight Distribution
I have been working with this system for a while now, and it has its high points and low points. It is a really good value (good price) and is pretty reliable. I mostly use it for smaller events because of it's size. Also, the holes and Nuts/Bolts that go into the holes on the I truss are GREAT! I use them all the time and they are one of the few things you don't find often that come in very handy in a pinch. However, There are some major cons to consider though. If you are not experienced with rigging or have just started using truss, go slow and be careful with weight distribution with this product!!! It can hold the weight rating just fine as long as the load is EVENLY DISTRIBUTED VERY CAREFULLY.
The Main problem I have with this system is that the fasteners and connectors are made of plastic instead of metal, and so they do slip sometimes, especially if the load hasn't been evenly distributed (sometimes even before raising it when rigging the lights it will slip a bit because there's only a light on 1 side and none on the other yet). Now, when I say slip, I'm talking about the connectors that connect the 2 5ft spans of I truss suddenly sink down so that the cross bar is more a V shaped dip rather than a straight - bar. I have cranked down the fasteners as tight as they will go and they still don't hold straight across (and my rig I use it with is usually only around 60LBS!). So while it is a great deal, it does have a draw back.
Also, with the new intelligent lighting out there, keep in mind expansion to a bigger system too (cause we all always want more gear) so this system may not support that (I truss in general doesn't always work with the larger intelligent lights). Be mindful that as your lighting collection expands, the last thing you will likely expand is the thing you MOUNT your lights TO and so you should really purchase with your future lighting needs in mind, not just your present ones!!! The last thing you need is a fancy new light that you can't mount on your system because of size, weight, mounting style, or number of other more needed fixtures!
My advice is that if you buy this product, you mount your 2 heaviest lights first as close to each tripod as you can for stability and work your way in. Also, get to know your system inside and out, it's worth it.
Overall it is a GOOD product but has drawbacks you should be very mindful of! Take the time to weigh all of your options (and in this case all of your gear too!)! Good Luck!
