    I have been using this product now for over a month and could not imagine life without it. Yes, it is heavy, and yes, it is a bit bulky, but on the plus side, all that weight and steel make for a very durable and steady stand. I use it along with a boompole mounting kit and 16' boom, and at about 9' high you still don't need any sandbags to keep this stand from getting tipsy. I plan on buying 3 more to replace the flimsy stands that came with our light kit!

    I bought this in conjunction with my GlidcamHD 4000 to help balance.(It was recommended in conjuction with buying the Glidecam) While it helps do that, it is awfully big and would recommend a smaller C-Stand.

          I have a 32"x48" softbox on a moonlight and needed something that was stable and tall. This stand is a great deal. Nice, wide base, solid screw-type locking, 10' elevation, and easy assembly. I will get more of these as I add lights.

              I love this product! I have a 7ft OctoDome so I needed a stand that was sturdy enough to hold it. This stand works! It was easy to put together and easy to maneuver! Highly Recommend!!

                Needed a turtle c-stand because the regular ones won't fit in my car, this stand is great, solid and the price is really good especially with free shipping from B&H.

                  Used two of these on a small shoot the other day. After buying a grip head and arm extension it was ready to take on the world. Was very easy to setup, love the detachable base. For transport it's a bit on the heavy side, especially if you're a one-man crew, but of course that weight also makes it sturdy. Give a little get a little.

                    * Used with Alienbees along with PLM umbrellas, beauty dish, or large softboxes
                    * Solid, well-built
                    * When you extend the stand, there is a lot of oil on the poles so your hands get really oily unless you are standing on a ladder (or are very tall) where you can grab the whole thing by the top to extend it.

                              I own quite a few C stands from Matthews and Avenger. With the Impact model standing next to the rest, they are almost identical other than the design of the knobs.

                              My only dislike would be that the riser will not fit into my Photoflex dual case while the risers from the other C stands will fit. It will fit in a Pelican 1750 case which is what I use to store/transport my C stands anyways.

                                This is a very heavy duty copy of the popular C-Stand. These units are made from a thicker (and softer) steel than a Matthews or an Avenger which gives them good strength and heft but they are heavier than their competitors. One thing I have noticed is this softer steel allows the set screw of equipment that is attached to the 5/8" Baby Pin to ever so slightly dent the pins. Not a huge deal but over time it could eventually tear the pins up. The folding bases with the quick release mechanism is just awesome. These puppies pop open and closed in literally a second and they are solid as a rock open or closed. I have eight of these and I have added some Kupo thirty and twenty inch risers that pop right into the Impact bases to give me a really versatile set of light stands.

                                  We use this product on a regular basis for interviews and videos for training purposes. They work great with the lightweight Kino Flo Interview Select 2 Fluorescent Light Kit. They are very sturdy and heavy. I was not expecting this from price. I was pleasantly surprised. The unique locking mechanism at the base makes them easy to transport. The legs are 3 different heights, and this makes it very easy to stack many of them in a corner in a small footprint because the legs can overlap if you turn them the right way.

                                    I wanted to go with the c stands cause I wanted a more sturdy option than the traditional light stands,, when I received this product I was pleasantly surprised,, heavy duty and very sturdy,, looking to buy more

                                        For being one of the cheaper model c-stands, definitely a good value. When putting the stand in the base, it feels a little loose, but I definitely trust my gear on this.

                                        Having the base detachable is a great feature to have too. Easy to pack tight.

                                        I bought the stand primarily for use with a mic boom pole. I find the stand extremely well built and sturdy for the purpose compared with the light stand I attempted to use. Somewhat heavy but worth it for stability.

                                              I also have several more expensive c-stands and actually prefer the locking mechanism on the Impact stands, and they cost less.
