          Comments about Matthews Light Heavy Black Kit Stand:

          I'm a huge fan of Matthews gear. At this point I have a lot of stands, both Matthews and Manfrotto. I like Matthews better because they use brakes vs. pinch fittings at each riser. I have both the steel and aluminum version of the next size down, the light medium kit stands. When I ordered this, I thought I was paying a premium for a SLIGHTLY beefier stand than the light medium that I've been using. My primary use for these stands is for microphone booms, and I was looking forward to a little fatter locking knobs, etc. One of the cameramen that I commonly work with puts a Diva 400 on this very stand. I didn't realize this until this stand arrived and it was much bigger than I expected. I thought an extra forty bucks over the next size down was a premium, but that should have told me I was ordering a far more substantial stand... and this is.

          The actual weight is 7.5 lbs. This stand is 17 oz lighter than the light medium STEEL stand, and they both hold the same weight, but this one goes much higher, and has a wider foot-print.

          So if you're torn between these two stands, ask yourself what you want it for. If you want height and/or stability, this is clearly the one to get. As a bonus, it weighs a full pound less. Seeing the two side-by-side there's no comparison. This may be one of the better light-stand deals that B&H has to offer.

          If I have any complaint, ironically, it's almost too big (at least for my intended use). For holding a mic boom, it's absolutely overkill unless you use a boom at 13-17'... if you do that, then this is definitely the one you want.

            Comments about Matthews Light Heavy Black Kit Stand:

            I choose these light stands for my Alien Bee 1600's after reading reviews of the PCB stands. Having used Matthews grip equipment before I had no reservations about buying these aluminum stands. When they arrived I was not disappointed they are very well made and will handle my strobes with the largest soft boxes. They are very solid and do not sway when fully extended even without sandbags(always use sandbags myself). The stands also are steady outside in light wind at the beach. The only thing missing is a rocky mountain leg, good thing I have apple boxes. I have ordered two more for backdrop support to complete my portable portrait studio.
