    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!

        Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black - 6' (1.8 m):

        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.

                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 am very pleased with this stand for the price it cost. It does the job for me without setting me back.

                                      This lightstand is perfect for what I am using it for....Off-camera flash. It is lightweight, easy to fold and sturdy.

                                      Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black - 6' (1.8 m):

                                      This is a nice, easily adjustable, very portable light stand. Very lightweight, so easy to move around during a shoot. Probably not heavy duty enough to hold large lights/strobes or modifiers (soft boxes/umbrellas) but perfect for off-camera flash (e.g., Speedlights) and small umbrellas (e.g., 30-33"). May be too lightweight for use outdoors in the wind unless sandbags are used, but perfect for indoor shooting. Good value for the money.
