Savage Infinity Vinyl Backgrounds Sagging in the middle
Oct 27, 2009

Hello All,

I have purchased 2 Savage backgrounds and had them installed onto the Manfrotto Autopoles setup shown below.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/95211-REG/Manfrotto_by_Bogen_Imaging_2961D_2961D_Complete_Deluxe_AutoPole_2.html

The problem is the 2 backgrounds will sag in the middle and cause major creasing in the vinyls themselves.

I have purchased the 10' wide by 20' long versions which each weigh in at 25lbs.
The questions I have are:

1. Is the sagging normal due to the width and weight of the backgrounds?

2. Is there sagging because of weak cores?

3. Is there sagging because of Manfrotto drive sets only attach onto the ends of the roll and not throughout the core?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Josh
