    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!

          - using it as hight adjustable stand for portable projector around offices and portable light
          - light, cheap simple, good structure
          - the tri-legs deployment is adjustable thats relly cool
          - for lighter items but pretty stable when deployed fully
          - slightly bends when loaded with heavier equipment - not design for it.

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

          I'm just starting out in the lighting/interview world, so wanted a budget option before dropping bigger bucks on gear. It's totally functional, though light weight and cheaply built. As far as I'm concerned, I think that this stand will last me quite some time given that I take care of it and always have sand bags on hand to weight it down in any outdoor setting. Worth the buy if you're not looking for bomb-proof.

            Created a DIY light kit and this was the key part. Holds a 300W worklight with a DIY chimera on it just fine. Throw a sandbag on the legs and you're good. I would suggest taping the small plastic caps though at the bottoms of the feet as they tend to fall off sometimes and no one wants grime to clog up their light stand pipes.

                Based on the price, I was not expecting this stand to be as well built and substantial as it appears to be. I have only used this stand a few times so far, so I can't testify about its durability.

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

                I am on a shoestring budget and needed something to stick my Home Depot custom softboxes onto. They fit perfect particularly because of the 1/4-20 thread on the top. Nice and light, compact, can't complain. Only thing is the small caps on the bottoms of the feet may fall off (mine did in the snow) but I'm not worried. Some tape can cover those real quick. Would recommend!

                          Soild build for the stand. If you want something to hold a light while you do other things then this would be a wise purchase. This is for lighter weight lights and is not a replacement for a C-Stand.

                            The two 6' stands I just purchased are used in my small studio to support lights that illuminate items in my light tent. They are easy to move around and provide all the adjustments I need.

                            I also have two additional Impact stands that I use with umbrellas.

                              I bought this because I wanted something cheap and lightweight to hold a strobe and umbrella while I was in the U.S. It's actually a little more sturdy than I was expecting. I used it for a few indoor shoots with the Impact Umbrella Bracket and a cheap 43" Impact Umbrella. Would probably want to put some sandbags on the legs if it was being used outside at its fully-extended height with an umbrella attached.
                              It packs nicely alongside the 43" umbrella.

                                  I needed a stand for my Quikbox. This stand worked perfect and it was easy to attach and make adjustments. Great price and not flimsy but strong. Very happy with this product.
