        I bought this in hopes that this would support the Mole 2k light that I own and found that it's not quite sturdy enough hold it. However, with that said, compared to the Arri lightweight lightstand that I'm used to working with in using our 650s and lower tungsten light, this is just as great. It's well-built and from a reliable company whose c-stands I enjoy using. Definitely recommend.

            I've had three of these for about 8 years and with exception of some scratches on the paint they still work as good as new. I recently lost one so this was a replacement purchase for me but I'd buy them again and again. All metal parts & knobs, no plastic. A great durable quality stand for the price.

                Surprisingly sturdy for such a lightweight build. Smooth operation of parts and maximum height of 9.5' is very handy. Collapses to convenient 36" for storage & transport. Great stand for light to medium production in field and in studio.

                  Comments about Matthews Medium Duty Maxi Kit Stand (Black, 9.4' ):

                  I bought the Matthews Medium Duty Maxi Kit Stand (Black), Model #B387485, thinking it was a black colored version of the Matthews Medium Duty Maxi Steel Kit Stand, Model #387485. The B&H web page description does say "steel". But the Matthews web page description does not mention steel or aluminum construction. Weight specifications for both the #B387485 and the #387485 light stands is stated as 8.5 lbs. However, upon receiving the #B387485 light stand, I discovered it is aluminum, not steel and only weighs 4.5 lbs.

                  Despite the description misunderstanding, I judge this light stand to be of very high quality and expect it to serve my need to support a large umbrella and strobe very well.

                      I use these to hold my Alien Light Bee strobes. They're light enough to take on location yet sturdy enough give adequate support. They're listed as 8.5 lbs but are only 6.5 lbs. I have come to like heavier stands because they're less apt to tip over, without having to resort to sand bags. Price wise they're in the middle. I wouldn't recommend buying anything cheaper because you'll regret it.

                        It works just as expected. Will probably buy another one for a matching pear. The craftsmanship and quality is very nice. Price could be a little cheaper, but not a big deal.
                        Gives great height and stability.
                        I recommend it.
