This Impact Master Century C Stand Kit (10.75') is comprised of a C-stand, 2.5" grip head and 40" extension arm. The stand features a patented locking mechanism that allows the legs to swing out and lock into place for easy setup and collapse flat for storage. The included extension grip arm fits neatly into the stand's removable 2.5" grip head, allowing you to offset the stand and cantilever flags, gobos or lights out of the way of the action. The stand has a low center of gravity which allows mounting of heavy equipment without tipping. The legs are perfectly shaped for saddlebag-type sandbags. The kit is also often used as a short boom.

Fold-away, twist and release locking legs.
Durable finish resists all weather conditions.
Innovative design on the Century Stand base allows individual legs to be set at any angle, and can be positioned in locations not possible with classic stands.
Ergonomic "T" shaped handles are "captive" -- they do not come off of the stand when unscrewed, preventing loss.
Each riser section has an external rubber gasket, which protects your equipment and fingers from sudden drops in stand elevation.

Maximum Height 10.75' (3.3m)
Closed Length 4.75' (1.5 m)
Footprint Diameter 37" (94 cm)

Attachment Size 5/8" (16 mm) male stud

I couldn't be happier than I am with these Impact stands!! Yes, they're heavy, but I shoot a lot of my work outside on location, and the weight keeps them from being top heavy. I can set them up as high as they go with a couple sandbags and a smaller (2x3) sofbox, and they never budge. I'll be buying the shorter version next, as well as the Roller Stand with the folding base for my studio. Great Product!!

Yes, it's heavy, but I view that as a good thing.
Could be sturdier.

The Stand itself is good. I like the base locking mechanism for the legs. It really makes that portion of the set-up a breeze. Unfortunately, every second you gain from that and then some is lost when the grip heads stick... and they do stick. You need to keep a long, thick screwdriver on you at all times to pry it loose.

Like at least one other reviewer has mentioned, in the future I think I'll just get the stand alone and buy some Avenger, Manfrotto or Matthews Grips to go along with it.

        We own quite a few of this version C-Stand and it's been a solid piece of equipment. The lever to close the legs for transport is great. Make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing using these-- if you don't align the pin when closing the grip heads, you're going to have a fun little arts and crafts time with a hammer getting it back into place. This are a little on the heavier side, but you should expect that. Very durable. I'm sure I'll be buying many many more of these in the next few months.

        Solid Stand, Good Price

        By Brian

        from Rapid City, SD

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

        This is my first C Stand. I have and use many different light stands and especially like my Manfrotto 1004BAC 144-Inch Air Cushioned Stands but when I got this C Stand I wondered why I haven't got one sooner. Very solid and versatile. Turtle base is a must for portability.

        Great for exactly what it says it is. Easy to put together. Very sturdy. Huge difference compared to regular stand. Also like the boom arm for additional lighting options.

                    Sturdy, well built and easy to set up. Arrived on the day promised, so was able to shoot on day one. Fairly heavy, but that's good for stability. Stows easily for location shooting. A little pricey, but well worth it.

                        Wasnt sure what to expect because I've never heard of Impact before. After reading a few reviews online I decided to take a chance and order them, with the thought that I could always return them if necessary.
                        They arrived quicky, and when I unboxed them..I was blown away!! These stands are great. They are very "beefy" and stable. More than comparable to Matthews. I will definitely order more of these and highly recommend you do the same.

                          I thought this would be a little bit heavier and studier than a light stand. It's not, it's in a different league. It feel like a piece of industrial equipment. I'm very happy. Every photographer should have at least one to hang really big/heavy modifiers on.

                          The base disconnects making it easy to put in any car. It is very stable and nice looking. I read somewhere the knuckle gets stuck and requires any simple tool to pry apart. The very first time I used the stand, I was banging a Leatherman on the knuckle trying to get the knuckle to become unstuck. Also, keep in mind the extension arm isn't 40 inches long, but 40 inches short. I ended up buying a 123 Super Boom to get a Chinese Lantern to reach far enough.

                            Ordered the one with the removable legs and the locking mechanism is brilliant, to open legs, one hand on the lock and gravity does the rest. Excellent quality & price.
                            I will use them both, in studio and location.

                              I use this for all kinds of applications where lighting or the blocking of has to happen! This stand is great for holding the heaviest of lights, scrims, flags, etc. You name it, this stand can hold it!The main reason I bought this was to use with a Luxbanx 84" Octo softbox & it holds it exactly where I want it held!Have not found anything bad about it & will buy more in the future to have for scrims, flags, etc.

                              Initially I thought the impact brand would be less sturdy than others I've used. The build was a pleasant surprise. These are really tall. Too tall for most of my needs. I've also ordered shorter ones.

                              This thing is pretty big comparred to other Matthews stands I've used. Maybe only a few inches taller than I'm used to, and the knuckles are beefy. That said, it is quality built and excellent for the price. I don't have any doubts about this product. And with BH free shipping u cant go wrong!

                                Was worried at first since it's not one of the known American brands, but used it for multiple shoots. The turtle base and quick release set up are great for on the go and when you need something to fit in the back of a car trunk.So far so good, we will see if it stands up over time..

                                Used for a few portrait and product shoots already. Hasn't failed me yet. Holds an Impact monolight with beauty dish. Height is sufficient. Only regret is not getting something with caster wheels for easy light position change. It's a heavy stand, as it should be, so lifting repeatedly to adjust the position is a little annoying.

                                Very happy

                                  I couldn't be happier than I am with these Impact stands!! Yes, they're heavy, but I shoot a lot of my work outside on location, and the weight keeps them from being top heavy. I can set them up as high as they go with a couple sandbags and a smaller (2x3) sofbox, and they never budge. I'll be buying the shorter version next, as well as the Roller Stand with the folding base for my studio. Great Product!!

                                  I was looking for a sturdy stand with an arm to hold my beauty dish….and this Impact C-Stand is it for me. This truly makes me want to replace all my stands with C-Stands. The all steel construction is of amazing quality & because there are no plastic parts that can break, it's one less thing to worry about. Obviously, this stand is heavier to maneuver than the aluminum ones, but that would be expected.
