Moonlight boom arm question

->> I am looking for the best portable option to mount a moonlight with 40 inch beauty dish - in a boom arm scenario. I currently have a Manfrotto that is not doing the trick. Any suggestions?

->> I assume you meant monolight; not moonlight.

Heavy duty C-stand with large knuckle and solid arm extension -- with big sand bag to counter strobe hanging out there at the end.

->> I have been using the Avenger D600CB Mini Boom with Avenger E700 Baby Drop Down Pin with my White Lighting 1600 paired with either a Paul Buff large softbox or 3' octos with no issues just have to find the right counter weight. Also second Doug on C-stands and lots of sand bags.

->> The Drop Down Pin or something similar is crucial. Otherwise the light will slip on the boom arm under the weight of the modifier.
