    I bought the LSB-2214 as a kit with the Photoflex Litedisc 5-in-1 and a telescopic Litedisc holder. At first, I found it easier to pat my head and rub my belly at the same time rather than figure out all that this can do. After about 15-20 min. of working with it I was using it like a pro! This stand and above mentioned accessories, has so many variations and uses that you can really be creative. You can put an off shoe flash on it and hold reflectors/diffusers too(and use it to fend off a stray dog at a local park while your client tries to climb a tree, not going to get into that). So, if your looking for an all in one type setup this is as close as your going to get.

    This stand is fine if you dont plan on moving it much but once you do...

    After about 5x of opening and closing this stand the bottom screw (for the pole) no longer tightens. The screw is fine but the hole it goes into is stripped. This happens when you use a better metal (screw) with junk metal (hole).

    Cheap. Junk.

        I've used these stands for years with monolights and umbrellas approaching 6' in diameter and a 2'x3' softbox; I have had NO problems of any kind.

          Comments about Photoflex Medium Weight LiteStand (Black, 8' ):

          This has been my go to stand for most of my light work. It offers a wide stance and weight so things stay were you put them. It is also very durable and ridged. Bottom line is they are some of the best stands in there class and they won't break the bank.

                  I use several of these stands to hold monolights and small to medium sized softboxes. It does both with aplomb. This stand is solid and the tensioners are made of metal and not plastic. I would buy this stand again.

                            The construction is pretty solid and seems to hold up quite well.

                              After reading all the reviews on this product, I was convinced to spend the extra $ to get a good stand. Although I currently only own a speedlight, this stand will work with bigger lights when I get them! All the metal parts are great and not too heavy.

                                Very sturdy, and feels more expensive than it is.

                                  I use it to hold a reflector. Extremely well machined and sturdy.

                                      I purchased this as the two light stand, two umbrella kit. The stands are rugged and well made, looks like it should last for a good ling time. Slightly heavy, but that's fine with me, I can carry it.

                                      a little on the light side of things. If using to shoot outdoors with any kind of breeze, it isn't very steady.

                                              Easy to set up. very well built even the fittings are cast aluminum, like my old
                                              Bogen light stands.
                                              I wanted to purchase the bogen again but now it has plastic fittments, not good, as plastic eventually dries out and cracks, then what good is the stand.
                                              This is the best stand for the money, will buy another two of these.
                                              I use a large parabolic 60" umbrella and paul buff mono light and it holds it no problem. Do not wast your money on anything else. Buy this one.
