    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.

      Comments about Impact Turtle Base C-Stand - 10.75' (Chrome):

      * 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.

                Comments about Impact Turtle Base C-Stand - 10.75' (Chrome):

                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.

                  Comments about Impact Turtle Base C-Stand - 10.75' (Chrome):

                  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.

                          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 three stands specifically for ARRI 1K tungsten movie lights. I was expecting a cheaper build and lighter construction for the price and was very pleasantly surprised - this is the real heavy weight version that you get when renting. I am ordering another three stands. Also really easy release system for folding and unfolding support legs.

                                            I bought the first one after I had several other stands, I found that is was superior Quality, unique design, super stable, love the turtle design. Needless to say I just bought 2 more to replace my other stands that cost considerable mores $$$.Great product definitely more bang for the buck, top quality, superior in many ways.A great choice!

                                              Used this stand for a short film production recently and couldn't be happier. Well built and easy to use. I am very pleased with these stands!

                                                This is a great piece of gear and a must have if you are using a SteadiCam. You will need this to balance your rig. I would love to say something negative to balance, but the build quality is excellent and I just can't think of anything.

                                                  I love the look of it the moment I unbox it. The chrome is beautiful. The stand is super sturdy and you can raise it above 10 feet which is great for using it with an external flash or video LED light. When I am not out shooting, I use it to dock my HD4000 glidecam and vest. Looks very cool and professional. Don't think, just buy it! You won't regret it.
