Well built. A little to tall for my application but will work around it.

Comments about Matthews Telescopic Baby Stand Extension:

The product itself is well made, compact, and should work well. It is, however, not 18-54". At the short end, it will extend your stand by 15" and full extended it will extend by 46 3/4" (overall length including the mounting stud at the top is 16 1/2" when collapsed and 48 1/4" when fully extended).

Getting shorted 8" probably isn't a deal breaker for me, but I might have sprung for the longer Manfrotto extensions had the item been accurately described. It looks and feels like a solid product, as long as the actual specs match what you're expecting.

      Comments about Matthews Telescopic Baby Stand Extension:

      I use my extension Telescopic Baby Stand Extension with a Manfrotto Super Clamp to mount my audio mics. When collapsed, the pole easily fits in my gear bag (a medium sized messenger bag) and is very lightweight. It holds firm and steady even when fully extended. I'd highly recommend this for situations when a full floor stand is not practical to mount mics or other equipment.

              Comments about Matthews Telescopic Baby Stand Extension:

              I bought this to use as a small, portable light stand, rather than using a traditional 10' or 13' stand. I used it with a Manfrotto Super Clamp clamped to a table and it worked great. It folds up small and is very portable. It is well made - I put an Alien Bees monobloc with a 44" umbrella on it at full extension. This is probably about as heavy an item as I'd want to use, but it handled it just fine.

                  Compact and easily packable alternative to a full sized tripod. coupled with a clamp, this is amazingly versatile. I have used it with a superclamp to run 90 degrees off a stand as well with very good results. Extremely sturdy. Love this

                    Nice and small, could be lighter, price is right. The top has a stud, but I would rather have a socket so I can pick my own stud without having to add a heavy universal adapter.

                        it fits nicely on lots of things you find in the field, but most importantly all my clamps like a charm.

                        it loses 1 star for not using a standard threaded top like most stands it mimics.

                        still, over all it gives reach any situation and it is built well also. I like it.
