        Comments about Avenger A2030DCB 9.8' Turtle Base C-Stand (Black):

        This is a very sturdy and professional C Stand. It's heavy and it's not going anywhere. I was thoroughly impressed with it recently on a shoot. It also go along with Avenger stands as it's very simlar in its looks.

          Comments about Avenger A2030DCB 9.8' Turtle Base C-Stand (Black):

          I use a pair of these Avenger C-stands with Kino Flo Diva Lites. They are sturdy and secure, and raise up to nearly 10' high.

          The detachable turtle base makes for convenient stowage, and the discreet black finish minimizes reflections.

          Great stand! Durable rugged hardware.

            Comments about Avenger A2030DCB 9.8' Turtle Base C-Stand (Black):

            I purchased this C-stand primarily to hold my 17' boom pole when I'm doing location audio recording. I bit the bullet and am purchasing all my C-stands with turtle bases for two reasons: 1) transportation and 2) storage. It is easier to transport all of my C-stands in a mini-van full of lighting, audio and grip gear. It is also easier for me to store the turtle base models in a small home studio. I love black C-stands but the truth of the matter is that chrome finish always wears better than black . . . period. That being said, the black finish on the Avenger models seems to hold up much better than other brands. If you have a studio where the C-stands won't be broken down as much the black finish will last even longer, but it's still not impervious to being scraped and scratched. I plan on picking up two more of this model to position rim lamps on one and two talent interviews. The spring bases are also prone to break, but with careful handling these stands should serve your needs for years to come.

              Comments about Avenger A2030DCB 9.8' Turtle Base C-Stand (Black):

              I use this stand primarily for my Steadicam, and it's a champ. The turtle base is terrific, it goes together quickly, and the finish withstands daily, nearly constant use.

              I have no complaints with Avenger's product line, and certainly non with this C stand.
