                I have a couple of these size C Stands along with the standard size ones. The lower profile is sometimes more convienent and sometimes necessary. This size works well with track dollies systems too.

                    For the price, these are the best 20" c-stands you can buy. The only other competitor is American and these are just as good and not nearly as expensive. I use these for professional use on film sets and my crew loves them.

                      C stands are a must-have filmmaking tool. They hold pretty much anything and will save the day on cutting light out of a shot, holding a fan above an actor, assembling a backdrop, etc. The list goes on! Pair them up with some pony clamps and a sandbag and you'll never go wrong gripping again.
