Everything about this halter is awesome, well made, almost perfectly engineered, nice and solid, and I liked it so much I got 2 more for my church. I took one star off because it will not hold my iPad vertically in the 4 pad position(2 pads on top 2 pads on bottom). As it is, you have to mount it in landscape position, and then turn it up to be in portrait position. This gives you good grip on the sides, but nothing on the top,
and only 1 resting pad (not a griping pad) on the bottom. If they would have add 1/4'' more of extension to the spring loaded extension, this would be a perfect design. But nothing is perfect. I am very happy with this holder even though it's a little pricy, and that little flaw I mentioned.
I would recommend this to anyone that asked me about a pad holder.
1 more thing, I received the absolute best Customer Service from Sweetwater I've ever had. These Guys Rock !!!!!!!!! I will even go as far as saying, Personally, I would even pay a little more for something at Sweetwater, because I have the confidence that they will take good care of me.
