So im sure a lot of you have seen those light weight matte boxes from film tools made from coroplastic. I was wondering if anyone has found it to be a good investment. From what I understand it is just the eyebrow and the side brows which I am wondering why it is worth buying when it doesn't seem to be that much more leight weight. Please tell me your opinions.

It's not a mattebox, it's meant to be used in combination with one as you said, an eyebrow and side flaps. It's amazing to me that Panavision has never made a clip-on with the capability to add these like every other manufacturer, but there it is. This is just an more "official" version of what most assistants have in their kit (and a lot more expensive).
