Seeking help with backdrop setup
Oct 10, 2012

Greetings,

I just purchased and have tried to setup this Amazon product which looks to be quite well made and was easy to install.  But, I have three 10ft wide backgrounds (2 muslins, 1 vinyl) that are 20ft long. These are fairly heavy, and the 2inch pvc tubes that I have rolled them on and placed between the spindle/chain parts.    After three days, these tubes where all sagging 5 inches.  I cut down some 2x4 wood and filled the tubes, which delayed the sagging 4 more days.

Can anyone make a recommendation?  I have found 10ft x 2in steel pipes, but they are $60 each, and REALLY heavy.

Many thanks,

Stephen
