    these stands are my only complaint from this impact lighting kit i purchased. i'm used to air-cushioned heavy duty PBL light stands, and these are just very flimsy. don't get me wrong, they work, and for indoor projects they will do fine, but i wouldn't take them outside and expect them to survive a day of shooting. I feel like I could snap these in half with just my bare hands. with proper care, they will last me. just need to be very careful with them. they are very lightweight. even with 20lb sandbags on them, it was swaying in the wind and it looked as if it would snap. scary!

            Great, light-weight stand for studio use, especially for the price. Not sure how well it would hold up to heavy use/travel, but for light studio use, it is a good buy! We needed some extra light in a pinch, so this was a good fit. Pros may want something a little more heavy duty.

              Not the most sturdy thing in the world, but quite adequate for light gear. I haven't used this outside like I plan too, but I think with some weight on the bottom it will do fine.

              I got this light stand to hold my iPad to use as a "makeshift" teleprompter. I wanted (needed) inexpensive and figured for the price this would "do." It is so much better than I thought, that I have mounted a heavy light assembly to this stand and am using my old rickety stand for my iPod. I will have to get a couple more of these!

                I use these stands for quick, small-scale, informal video shoots for my company. They came as part of a lighting package.

                They're fine for light-duty work. They set up quickly and are easy to move around.

                The product is being used for a simple commercial photo set up for a company with a need to photograph over 400 products. So far they are great for the needs that we have. Not a lot of put up and tear down and no need to last more than a year.

                      This is a perfect stand to hold small led lights to be used by a single photographer or videographer. It goes up to 6' which give better chances to light up hair a person for interviews.

                          I'm giving it 4 stars because for what it is, it's really good. I wouldn't expect this stand to hold up to everyday heavy use. We bought it because it is light, which is great for traveling, but does the basics of holding up a light. I would recommend this only as a light duty, light-weight stand, not subject to a lot of wear and tear.

                          This really good. It just need a sand bag to avoid accidents, especially when an umbrella is mounted and when used outdoors!

                            I use these to hold LED panel lights for video. These are not High-End or Heavy Duty stands but if you are needing something light weight and short for travel, these guys are awesome. They are only 6 footers but they are perfect for interviews or using in small places if you need to get some ambient light going. I would reccomend these to a friend...about to buy 2 more of them for my travel kit!

                                  This stand is light-weight and reasonably priced. Very easily moved around and adjusted.
                                  I recommend it for any gear that is not heavy.

                                  Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black - 6' (1.8 m):

                                  The stand came with the kit and appears to be a mild-duty construction that will work for most people and applications. Definitely not the heavy-duty sturdy construction that light stands of the past were built with. I bought this kit for a Figure Drawing classroom in a university setting, but am worried that even with the large footprint that the base has it is a bit lightweight and could topple when students are moving about.
