      I bought a couple of these after reading the reviews and I'm rather pleased considering the price. In comparison I have a couple of Profoto lightstands that came with a D1 studio kit. They are not as solid and steady but in contrast they are more lightweight.

        I was looking for a low priced speed light stand but wanted something that would hold my investment securely. After all, you typically have $-$ in lighting plus light diffusion on the stand for under $. This stand meets my needs perfectly...It is sturdy and not cheaply made. I would put my Alien Bees on here without hesitation as long as it was out of the way and indoors..I would recommend this for speed lights all day

              Comments about Interfit Air Cushioned Stand - 8.0':

              The stand is sturdy enough to hold a FL/50R flash with a 44 inch umbrella or a 40 inch reflector. At the same time it is light enough to carry around. Outdoors it requires a sandbag to keep it in place. The stand is tall enough for most indoor use and the air cushion feature is good for the lightweight gear I am using.
              The stand is an excellent value - I have paid more for a smaller, lighter stand.

                    This stand works as advertised and is easy to operate and fairly robust. I feel confident using it indoors however outside not so much. The thing I liked about the Interfit pkg. was the portability factor. Using it outside on a windy day I had someone hold it at all times. Also it would be better if there was someway to adjust the legs for uneven ground.

                        Sturdy light stand, quite sufficient to hold a Super Cool lite 4 in place. I am satisfied with the product, and BH's prompt and reliable service.

                            This is my fourth Interfit light stand. I needed something between my lightweight and heavyweight stands. This one fits the bill. The air cushioning allows the sections to retract slowly--though its not as smooth as it could be. It has a nice footprint and a decent amount of heft. Overall, the Interfit stands offer a good combination of quality and price.

                              I liked it very much. I am not a pro yet but for beginning I think it does the trick. The only thing I did not like was that it does not have an instruction manual, even though you can probably figure it out. It takes longer.

                                This light stand came in a package when I got my reflector. Since then I have tried other ones I didnt really like, and I think this stand is the perfect balance between the cheap price and solid usability.

                                Not too cheap, not too expensive.

                                    I use this stand in combination with the 570 Stand Flash Shoe for my SB-800. The stand is light, portable, and does not take up much room on the ground. Overall, I am very happy with it. I gave 4 starts because I have not used it for heavier lighting, so I cannot testify to its performance in that area.

                                            It's not as smooth as I'd like but it's pretty sturdy for how lightweight it is. I work on location mostly so both factors are important to me. I don't know that I'd buy another one, maybe look around, but I'm happy with the purchase for now.

                                            The best I found for the money. I had a pair that served me well when I was using speedlights with umbrellas and later, Dynalite 2050 heads.

                                            However, have moved on to heavier monoblocs (Elinchrom 1200/600RX) and these just did not do the job safely when used with my large litedomes as the combination is literally the max capacity of the stand. Initially, I migrated these to head-only use for accent lights and everything but have since upgraded all my stands to the Matthews Maxi steel stands sold here.

                                            One thing of note is to not tighten the leg locking knob too tightly... I did and it actually bent the tubes so I had to have it loose in order to slide the first section. A minor inconvenience but largely my fault. Either way, I would question the durability in full-professional use.
