    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!

      This is my 3rd Impact stand and they are probably the best bang for the buck. Very sturdy, easy to use. Nice and lightweight. I use them for my off camera flash and umbrella setups.

            I use it for a 7 inch monitor and small LED light.

            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.

                      Purchased as part of a lighting kit (with two slaves, umbrellas, and sockets.) Sets up easily, with the lock-downs working crisply with no creeping down after the socket, slave and umbrella are attached. Works great for a small studio.

                                Gets the job done. Pretty tough we keep these in our ENG Trucks. They get tossed about like javelines by some of our guys and they still work!The spread on these is a bit narrow compared to others I've used. The center of gravity is a bit high, ....use a sandbag.I bought a pair of my own. Works perfect for the price!Holds a six pound hot lamp no problem.The "Air cushion" design makes these a bit "sticky" to break down. We shoot em up with WD-40 about 3-4 times a year (with heavy outdoor use) to make them deploy and collapse more easily.

                                  This is a pretty good little lightweight stand. It gets the job done and the price is right. I use it with a portable LED panel.

                                      This thing is pretty sturdy and not super heavy. Its $[$]and worth it.

                                        these impact light stands are a lightweight, compact easy to use system, works great with the lights they're made for. (surprisingly that's not always the case!) they cold up really small, but are well balanced enough to securely hold the lights on top. :-)

                                        Good stand, but it does get a bit top heavy with 4 105 CFL lights when plugin in the 4 socket expansion.

                                          i use strobes for all my on location shoots, so I need small an easy to carry stands so that they aren't cumbersome. This stand was exactly what I needed and wanted it to be.
