There are several types of sandbags and definitely plenty of reasons to use them with your C stands and tripods. The Rock Bar is a new product that helps you weigh down your tripods and stands. It’s sleek, sturdy and has removable weights, and it aims to replace all your wide and bulky sandbags.
The Rock Bar was designed as an alternative to other weighting methods to help stabilize and weight down tripods, light stands, and boom arms. It features a sturdy case, and weights made from 100% recycled steel. It weighs 7 pounds (3.2 kg) when fully loaded, but you can remove the weights and adjust the weight to your liking.
Besides from adjustable weight, this “sandbag” is slim and compact, unlike most sandbags. You can securely attach it to any part of your tripod, light stand or boom arm using wrap-around and removable attachment straps. The advantage is obvious when compared to hanging weight bags, because the Rock Bar won’t sway in windy conditions.
If you’d like to order the Rock Bar, you can do it via the company’s website, and the price is $45. How do you like this concept? Would you find it useful?
