    these stands are my only complaint from this impact lighting kit i purchased. i'm used to air-cushioned heavy duty PBL light stands, and these are just very flimsy. don't get me wrong, they work, and for indoor projects they will do fine, but i wouldn't take them outside and expect them to survive a day of shooting. I feel like I could snap these in half with just my bare hands. with proper care, they will last me. just need to be very careful with them. they are very lightweight. even with 20lb sandbags on them, it was swaying in the wind and it looked as if it would snap. scary!

      Great stands for the price. Use these indoors in a permanent set, but I would not put them to too much wear and tear.

              Soild build for the stand. If you want something to hold a light while you do other things then this would be a wise purchase. This is for lighter weight lights and is not a replacement for a C-Stand.

                The two 6' stands I just purchased are used in my small studio to support lights that illuminate items in my light tent. They are easy to move around and provide all the adjustments I need.

                I also have two additional Impact stands that I use with umbrellas.

                  I bought this because I wanted something cheap and lightweight to hold a strobe and umbrella while I was in the U.S. It's actually a little more sturdy than I was expecting. I used it for a few indoor shoots with the Impact Umbrella Bracket and a cheap 43" Impact Umbrella. Would probably want to put some sandbags on the legs if it was being used outside at its fully-extended height with an umbrella attached.
                  It packs nicely alongside the 43" umbrella.

                              The 1/4" thread is great for mounting gear. Folds up for easy moving.

                              Great value.

                                      Perfect inexpensive stand to hold an umbrella and speed light. I picked up the bracket to hold the umbrella and speed light as well. I'm a light user, only need lighting several times a year. Stand is very lightweight, if you need it to stay put I recommend some sandbags or other weights to hold it down.

                                      I have 2 of these stands and love them. I use the stands with my alien bees. And they are wonderful for easy set up, and portability. And they are really stable.

                                      Nice stand. It's a bit larger than I was expecting when closed - but I am please with the quality.
