    I have a pretty good collection of light stands. Some I use for attaching speedlights on location when I shoot weddings, and some are used for large studio lights. I recently bought some LED lights that I wanted to put on a decent heavy stand and use at wedding receptions. The description looked good, and I liked the price. When I received it, it looks as flimsy as some of my $25 chinese light stands.

    Comments about Smith-Victor RS10 10' Heavy Duty Aluminum Light Stand with 5/8 Top Mount:

    I was amazed for the height this could reach, and still be fair enough stable. I use it with a Speedlight and works fine.
    I find it could be a little difficult to close the leg stands, but maybe it needs a little practice.

    Good thing is that is is very light, so it could be carried with no backaches.

        Good and tall. Nice stand. Remember this isn't a 1-1/2" diameter light tree so be careful on it being top-heavy when loaded. (the stand, not you). Compact and portable.

            So far so good. It isn't heavy duty so it's mainly designed to hold light stuff...like speed lights and reflectors. I'm having no problems so far! Light to carry too, that's a plus.

              Extends to 9 1/2 feet, sturdy, easily adjustable and is surprisingly light weight. It has a 5/8-inch stud post and built-in 1/4x20 screw thread on top with plastic protector. Seems "elegant." I bough four of these and glad I chose this model for my location setups.

                    It's built tough. Very smooth and holds position well. It's a little light if you're using some heavy equipment, but using for microphones as I am, it works extremely well and is a fraction of the cost of audio stands.

                        Not too much to say, except that the stand is exactly as described. Nice and sturdy with wide enough legs. I use it with Lowell Totalamps or smaller.

                        Nice feature is that the legs spread wide enough that I can put a small sandbag across the bottom.

                            This is the best medium stand that I've found for the price. I'm using them to support 6lb. monolights with softboxes. So far I'm impressed, but I've only had them a short while and am interested to see how the section collars hold up.
