Not too log ago someone was telling about a strip reflector on a tripod. He provided a picture and a link to get one of these mounted reflectors. I'm not rich enough to pay for a crew to tote around lights and reflectors to get the images you guys get. So if anyone remembers this reflector on a t-pod and the link I would deeply appreciate the link so I may get me one... or two.
These little helpers could be my crew.
Thanks!

B&H sells it under the paterson/interfit line for 77$. I believe it has silver/gold and transluscent. Take at look and see. Mike

I went back and took a look at it on B&H and it is only silver/gold like the other one, but the cost is a lot lower. Mike

Ron, thanks for posting the link, I was thinking about getting one of those too. My problem is that most of the time where I need a gizmo like that it is too windy so this self standing thing will act like a sail. Weighing it down with a camera bag or sand bags may be a solution. Have you or anyone else use these on location?

Use ankle weights, you can wrap them around the base of the stand and then around the stand entirely when you fold the legs up for transportation.

I have a reflector similar to these and though I have not tested it in windy conditions I doubt it would be much good. Even with a weighted tripod the support arms are quite flexible and the reflector is likely to be distorted by the wind rather than staying flat.

I find that even a light breeze on an open beach is enough to foil every reflector holder I have ever tried, apart from an asistant.

If anyone knows of a good, lightweight reflector system that is usable single handed in these conditions I would love to hear about it. The closest I have come so far is a home-made PVC tube framed reflector on a tripod mount.

Take a look at Calumet's line of 3D reflectors, it's what I use.

Looks interesting - have you used them outdoors when there is a breeze?
