      Comments about Matthews Reverse Stand - 7':

      I bought this stand to be used for sooting on location. The compact and large foot print is what attracted me to buy this product. When I tested it out, I was pleased with the sturdiness and the ability to fold up into a nice compact size to be put in a Pelican case or other lightstand case/bag. I mounted a Profoto head with a large Paul C. Buff foldable softbox and Profoto battery attached to the base of the stand with Manfrotto super clamp. Works like a charm and easy to move it around with one hand.The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because of the price.

          I love Matthews sands and this one is definitely not at sturdy as some of the other but it does allow me to get me soft box really low to the ground. Great little stand to have in the kit!

                I use these stands for location work and love them! They're extremely portable yet solid enough to hold studio strobes. They fold down small enough to fit in my air case with my strobes allowing me the luxury of not having to bring an extra light stand bag. Highly recommended!

                  Great stand. Love that it sits flat on the ground. Gives me peace of mind that it won't tople over.

                    This is a well made stand that offers excellent size to weight. If you need to travel with your gear, but want something actually usable for medium-sized lights (I use these regularly with a Dynalite Roadmax kit), these are a good option.I own larger stands from Matthews/Avenger, but scrapped my older lightweight bogen/manfrotto stands in favor of these.

                        The best stands I have used for the money. Fold up small, very stable. I use with LitePanels Sola 4 and have gone full height with no problems in wind.

                        Great product.

                        Comments about Matthews Reverse Stand - 7':

                        I had reviewed a number of the portable, reverse leg stands on BH website. I thought I would end up with the Manfrotto version, since the usually produce a quality product.

                        I happened to be in Manhattan, so I stopped by the BH superstore to check out some of these stands in person. After seeing them, I felt this stand was much better quality for basically the same price. It may be slightly heavier than some of the other competing stands, but it is an easy trade off for the obvious quality in this product. Plus, almost all of the joints are nut and bolt, instead of rivets, making adjustments and repairs much easier.

                          This stand is 5 star, nothing less. It's light, steady and well crafted. I especially like the locking mechanism that is safe and has a very good feel. Quarter turn between locking and unlocking.

                          Bought this as a second portable stand to go with my Manfrotto Nano 5001b stand. This Matthews one is only slightly longer when collapsed, but is much more solid and stable when in use. Highly recommend!

                                  This stand allows the softbox to go all the way to the floor which is great for photographing little ones in my small space.

                                    Probably the best small travel stand I've used. Lightyears better than the reverse kit stands from a company like Lowel. I pack them in Diva200 kits for travel. Just perfect.

                                      This is my first light stand and so far I love it. As a newborn photographer I most love that it drops all the way to the floor. Because I have small children running around my lights I will add sandbags to the base, but if I only photographed adults I don't think it would be necessary. I'm overall very pleased with my purchase.

                                        I worried that a lightweight stand would be too unstable. This stand is well built and able to handle on location demands.

                                          Nice sturdy, compact stand. Wish it had spikes for grounding on soil.
