          Comments about Matthews Hollywood Century "C" Pro Grip Arm Kit - 10.5' (3.2m):

          After years of photographing travel I now shoot locally. That means those light weight 'travel' stands I use don't have to do more than they were meant to do. I have wanted a C stand for some time to get my Elinchrom heads up and out and this stand does an excellent job. It locks down tight, feels like it might me a 'lifetime' product. I'm pleased.

            Comments about Matthews Hollywood Century "C" Pro Grip Arm Kit - 10.5' (3.2m):

            I have used the normal light stands for years. Cheaper. I finally purchased this stand and my life has changed forever. Meaning, no more moving the light/stand/weights more than once. I can angle the lights where they need to be without fuss and in a better position you than you could ever do with your typical stand. I have no idea what took me so long to order these.....

            No downfalls I can see with this stand. Its heavy, sturdy, and a little more pricey than the others. That is expected and worth it.

                  I use this product on the go and for location shoots a lot. It is flexible, strong and I like how the legs fold and lay flat.

                      We use this stand primarily to hold modifiers but also to hold lights. No complaints. You get what you pay for. If I wanted it to do anything more, I would have bought a different (more expensive)stand.

                            As an ex professional camera assistant with major credits, I can say that I bought this stand as much for nostalgia as for ruggedness and proven versatility on set. I love Mathews stuff and it's really the standard for grip equipment in the USA and Canada. You can do far more with this C-stand than a light stand and Mathews are the best. Totally rugged and reliable.
