This is a black 10.75' Avenger C-Stand Grip Arm Kit . The Century "C" Stand is a favorite among professional photographers, film makers and videographers everywhere. It is durable, and designed to collapse flat for easy transport and storage.

The leg design provides a very low center of gravity, and makes it easy to bury in the soil or sand, or accept sandbags for extra stability.

This kit includes a 2.5" swivel grip and a 40" grip arm, which is suitable for holding reflectors, or a lightweight light head. It has a black finish.

Fold Away Legs
Fold-away, spring loaded legs with unique mounts which are easy to replace.
Durable Finish
Resists all weather conditions.
Innovative Design
The base allows individual legs to be set at any angle, and can be positioned in locations not possible with classic stands.
Captive Handles
"T" shaped handles are "captive" and do not come off the stand when unscrewed, preventing loss.

      This is a great stand for video. I use the C-Stand to hold up a diffusion frame to spread and soften the lighting for products.

          Received the stand with minor scratches or wear but no functionality was hindered. Legs are challenging to expand and collapse but work well once you get the hang of them. Grip arm is a bit short but nothing surprising given item description. Overall, product is sturdy and works as expected.

            The most flexible and sturdy stand I own. Yes, it's heavy and pricey, but the weight is needed for stability and you get what you pay for.

              This C-Stand combo works fantastic! Well built, sturdy, easy to use. Although it is a little heavy, I prefer it to lighter weight stands, especially for outdoor use.

                This stand makes regular light stands look like toys. It is heavy and stable and the lockdowns hold both tiers with little effort. Even with huge octaboxes on it, I'm never worried about them letting loose. The arm that comes with this system is surprisingly great. I'm using it to get some extra length on a gridded strip box used as a hair light.

                    Comments about Avenger A2033FCBKIT 10.75' C-Stand Grip Arm Kit (Black):

                    I recently upgraded from using off camera speedlights to studio strobes. After struggling with some less expensive, light-weight light stands which were adequate for a speedlight, i quickly realized that for strobes and their more significant light modifiers i would need something more. Upon arrival, i was immediately impressed by the heft and build quality of this Avenger C-Stand. Make no mistake, this is not for lightweight travel. It's a hefty piece of gear.

                    The locking mechanism for the legs is easier to use than any of the other C-stands i've had the chance to use in the past. The handgrips for the locking screws are good sized and have a comfortable coating that makes them easier to get a good grip on to really tighten down an extension. It's study enough that i have no fears about using it to get my lighting equipment up to new heights and locations. When i'm ready to add more to my studio, i'll come back to this model with no hesitation.

                        I love this thing!! It's very solid, sturdy, yet very versatile. It looks great in black. I'll be getting another sometime. The only thing I didn't like about this kit is that it didn't come with a rod to mount a light on the grip arm, all you can do is mount it on top of the stand and that's it. It's a simple item but still, it should've been included.

                            I use the Avenger c-stands for almost everything on the set. I like the black over the chrome so I don't have to worry about light reflections off the stands.
                            Also matches up well with all my black microphone stands and booms. As a bonus, I can interchange parts from the Avenger stands and the mic stands and the combinations end up looking so professional while unique with many more uses than you can imagine.

                              This is a great piece of studio equipment, I have 4 of these babies and use them all the time! I like the fact that they are black and I don't have to deal with reflection off the bars if I am outside shooting, sometimes I would get flares from the sun off the chrome versions! I like these babies a lot!

                                    Real estate photography. Great fore mounting flash up in corner of room when taking picture from outside doorway to room. Will also be used for hair light boom and reflector holder.

                                    The kit is a great price given what you get included and the build quality. To say that it is well built is an understatement.The self locking legs and the fact that the whole stand lies flat when packed is a terrific idea.Change anything? Yes, I gave it 4 stars because I think the top 2 legs should have wing nuts instead of allen bolt for easier adjustments when used in the field on uneven ground. Very heavy but that tends to mean 'solid'! Overall terrific produsct.

                                      I bought this kit, along with the Ranger Quadra set, because I do a lot of outdoor shooting. The Avenger stands are heavy, and very durable. If you shoot where there's a good amount of wind, you'll want these Avenger stands. If you add a sand bag with these stands, your chances of watching your lighting gear go tumbling down the beach, off a building roof top, or off a mountains edge, are greatly diminished.

                                            It's heavy, but it's stable and hugely versatile and as far as I can tell, indestructible. Not too hard a hit on the wallet, either.
