    This stand is for lighting, but was suggested to me as a mic stand. Nice stand but, I would like to see Smith Victor change the name as this could be confusing to a new audio buyer. Thanks!

    Comments about Smith-Victor Port-A-Boom w/ Wheels and TB990 Bag:

    This boom stand wasn't exactly what I had pictured in my mind. This was more or less just a regular medium-light duty straight light stand [...] The stand comes with a few casters that you put on the legs that are universal and are a little big for this stand and a pain to put on. The boom arm (clamp) that is sent for this is too large to put on the top section of the stand, thus the overall working height is off by about 16" or so.It functions, but very lightweight and the counterweight on this stand does very little balancing. ...you know what is said, "you get what you pay for"

    Comments about Smith-Victor Port-A-Boom w/ Wheels and TB990 Bag:

    Not very strong... i put a small light on it and the stand was flexing pretty good. I decided not to use the stand and bought a c-stand. The arm is fine.

    Keep It Light, You'll Be Alright

        Comments about Smith-Victor Port-A-Boom w/ Wheels and TB990 Bag:

        I use this stand to support a Canon Speedlite with a Honl speed grid as a hair light in my small studio.

        It does the job as long as I do not extend the Speedlite too far from the stand. I need to put extra weight on the other side to keep it stable. The one pound counterweight that comes with the stand doesn't take much to overpower.

        In my studio I extend the boom arm from behind the backdrop support and it rests on the backdrop support for added stability. I still put a 3 pound weight on the stand for safety.

        It gets the job done and, in my small space, is about as much as I can handle.
