      The sections are still a bit sticky after a few times of use and I think they are going to stay that way. Both stands have this issue. They're not too smooth going up and down. I'd spend the money and buy the air cushioned ones in the future. But these do the job for what I use them for. They are really light too.

              I was just looking for a couple of inexpensive, yet quality stands. I was a couple short for a full light setup with flags, and wanted something that wouldn't be too heavy, yet give me some height. They're not quite as good as my other stands, but they're also about 40% the price.

              I was not disappointed with these at all. These are perfect for what I wanted. A good value indeed. They did lose one star because the bottom leg attachment doesn't have a release. That's probably a cost saving, so not really a big deal.

                  Great value. Well made and sturdy I use this indoors to support compact flashes and reflectors. Not as portable as some as it is heavier which makes for a better support i.e. I don't worry about it falling over.

                  Use the lightstands to hold my Lowel Tota Lights. Seems to be the same build quality as the old models from 10 years ago....and that's a good thing! You do need to either tape them or weight them down though

                    I often take lighting gear on location, Up to 4 heads and a power pack, and this stand is both easily portable and gets lights up high, which can be helpful in indoor settings. It is not sturdy enough for larger attachments like big softboxes at full height, but for lesser loads it works fine.

                      Comments about Manfrotto 368B Basic Black Light Stand - 11' (3.3m):

                      I am using this stand with Canon Speedlite 580EX II flashes along with a 45" convertible umbrella attached to an umbrella bracket with adjustable shoe. There is a bundled pair of stands from Impact with the 36" umbrella that costs less than this setup but I liked that this light stand gets up high to about 11'. I have not used this stand outdoors but for indoor use it is sturdy and the base comes out wide enough to give confidence that the attachments up top won't tip over on you without some kind of effort. After all you can't beat the laws of physics so the higher the stand reaches the easier it might be to tip. There are some weight-bags that can be applied to the stand to avoid that problem. Otherwise, for the relatively light Speedlite's and umbrella, the stand works great.
                      I will be buying a second set to match now that I know the stand is sturdy enough.

                          Tall, lightweight, and durable. Great travel gears. Must be secured with sandbags or other gears. Does not fold as easy as my other expensive Bogen stands, but @ 1/2 the price, and light enough to carry anywhere, well worth it. Watch your hardwood floor, or go to [...] and get some of the rubber feet for it.

                                This is a design that has been duplicated by many various manufacturers. BUY THIS ONE!

                                The few dollars you'll pay extra for a Manfrotto will be worth it to you over the long haul. The quality of workmanship and durability will make up for the higher cost.

                                  I use this to photograph products on a tabletop set up. They are longer than my need require but I could use them on other set ups in the future.

                                  I like that they are light and that I can store them easily under furniture at home.

                                  At the beginning they were a bit tight but now they open easily.

                                    Sturdy, strong (probably more than I need - using this with a shoe mount flash).
                                    Does the job well - and looks pro.

                                          The sections are still a bit sticky after a few times of use and I think they are going to stay that way. Both stands have this issue. They're not too smooth going up and down. I'd spend the money and buy the air cushioned ones in the future. But these do the job for what I use them for. They are really light too.

                                              This product is well made. It has some heft to it. I have been impressed with other Manfroto products, this one is not exception. My only complaint with all stand manufactures is that I wish they would develop a leg drop mechanism that worked a little smoother

                                              I use the stand with a Tota Light.The base is not wide enough ,it feels like its made from paper,when extended all the way it just feels to shaky.I dont believe it can handle harsh situations,its best to keep it off to the side .It will do the job and the price is right

                                                  This brand stays for quality. But for a lightstand 11' high it is shaky fully extended with strobe plus softbox on top (I'm using Hensel). On the other hand the price is more than reasonable. So it is a fair compromise.

                                                    Excellent stand for its price range,
                                                    light but stable and the turn knobs are great for adjusting height!
