    I tend to be rough on stands as I mostly do location photography. So far, these stands have put up with the abuse I have put them through. They have a nice wide footprint too, which is very useful when I have my boom arm with strobe, med. softbox and 11lb counterweight. The don't wobble at all with this setup, and I feel safe that the rig won't come crashing down on the model or client. That's a plus.

    This is a good stand for the money. There are better, higher quality stands out there but this works just fine for a standard studio strobe and medium sized soft box. I would not recommend using it as a background support or a boom support. All in all it is not a bad product.

    Sturdy and Priced Right.

    Comments about Impact Heavy Duty Light Stand, Black - 13' (4m):

    I received two of these and immediately ran them up to the max to determine the stability. At 13ft i would shave a monopod attached to it but I'd be confident with a flash. It's pretty stable considering the height. On previous reviews I've seen one person say they really liked the cushioned release when you loosen the set screw. There is no cushion. It will drop like a rock so be aware of that before you purchase them. It's not a big deal if you know there's no controlled drop, but you should know that up front. For less than $ a piece, it's a good purchase. They are long though. About 42 inches all folded up. I had to buy a separate case for them to transport.

      A little heavy and I feel like they could, if not taken care of properly, could get beat up and bent fairly quickly.

      As long as they are cared for, they are very stable up to the full height and a great price.

            using my two light stands to hold booms, one for my soft box and the other for my reflector. They're heavy (in a good way), feel strong, solid and sturdy and do the job they're intended for. I love the way they fold up. It took a few tries before I got the hang of it but now it's easy.

                      I really love these stands. They are just the right weight and don't wave back and forth when totally extended. I've seen some photographers using lightstands that look like it's going to come crashing down when extended to full height with a strobe on top. This stands nice and straight.
                      The only negative thing I have to say about this is that I can't fold the stand with wheels on. The caster wheels I brought separately need to be removed before folding the stand and when you're a rush to unpack and setup and then tear down again all your gear for a photoshoot or wedding, every minute counts.
                      I like Impact products, they are good value, so I really hope that they will produce 12-13 foot lightstands that have wheels on them that don't have to removed AND are no higher than 43" when folded. There are other manufacturers that produce lightstands wich are foldable with wheels attached, but they are pretty heavy and extremely tall when folded. These stands need exteremely long cases in which to shlep them in and it's totally unpractical, especially if your dragging your around five lightstands.

                      These provide the strength of a c-stand without the heft. Love these stands, they work great with large fluorescent units like a kino flo.

                        I bought this stand for my AB800 (AlienBees) with a 48" Octabox. The stand is strong and sturdy and has the quality feel. I use this stand indoors and outdoors with any worries of my lights and modifiers stability. It is easy to adjust and the adjustment knobs do not need to be over tighten to hold things in place. I have one for each of my AlienBees.

                              These are great stands for the price. I don't think they will hold up quite as long as my avenger stands due to the plastic tightening knobs but they were way cheaper and I'm pretty easy on my gear so overall I'm happy.

                                  Comments about Impact Heavy Duty Light Stand, Black - 13' (4m):

                                  Needed a tall mic stand for binaural recordings of a large choral group. This is the perfect solution, as the 1/4" x 20 thread fits my mic system, and 12-13 ft height puts the pickup well above the piano, and picks up a good blend of voices.

                                      I bought two of these for use on a home shoot. I wasn't looking to spend a lot on a 3 point light setup and this coupled with a couple other purchases gave me the look and feel of a professional set. I highly recommend
