        This is the first Avenger Roller Stand I have purchased and it did not disappoint. The quality is amazing and it rolls around very easily, even on carpet.

        I use it for tethering my laptop to my camera on location. It works very well for that purpose.

        The only thing that was not so great is that the minimum height listed on the website was not what it actually is and it is a little high for me even at its lowest.

          Excellent Stand, but Buyer's Remorse

            This stand works as advertised. It's well made, holds the boom arm I purchased well. The wheels are great. A bit tough to lower the legs first time and possible finger pinching are, but great nonetheless.

            So why do I say buyer's remorse in my title? When I saw a Manfrotto stand, which costs considerably more, with this very cool sliding arm on it to mount a light, I wish I had gotten that instead.

              Need it because I had a shoot in the city and needed a stand to balance my Steadicam, I forgot mine at home, the plan was to return it after my shoot. BUT this is one of those things that once you have it in your hands it is TOO nice to give back. Hence It is now my goto stand for everything, it is small and compact when closed maybe 3 ft. but open it can reach 7+ ft…. Love it!!

                  I have a number of Profoto monolights and softboxes, beauty dish, reflectors, grids and other modifiers. I was using the light stands that came with and added some wheels. One broke and I decided to buy a couple new ones and stumbled on these. i bought two really not knowing how sturdy they would be. They roll so smoothly and no fear of tipping. Not really too portable but wouldn't heistate to pack them up if I needed to. Going to replace all my light stands with these.

                          I really like this stand. It's bigger and beefier than I thought it would be. I like the the low profile of the base. I have this and the Avenger A420. I prefer the A5017 because it has the wheels already attached and the low profile of the base. The legs are a little difficult to open compared to other stands, but that is OK. Being able to roll lights on this stand is so much better than having to pick it up all the time.

                            Replaced a stationary c-stand video light with the Avenger A5017. Transferred the grip arm and light from from the c-stand to the rolling stand and can now change lighting setups in seconds. The stand is sturdy, lightweight and easily transportable. Couldn't give it 5 stars due to the leg locking mechanism, but it performs well with no issues so far.

                              This stand is used for my main light in my studio and allows me to move the light as needed without having to pick it up a stationary stand with sandbags. The construction quality is great and the low profile wheels allow clearance when needed.

                                Love it. Great build quality, compact and sturdy. This is a great light stand however I use it with the Matthews Monitor Mount and a monitor. I wanted a solid strong stand with a low minimum height. It also has one of the smallest wheel bases on the market. Its plenty wide enough to support the monitor but not so wide that people are tripping over the wheels.

                                bought it specifically for a 17" panasonic monitor and it serves its purpose. maybe still a little too tall. also, funny base folding system may lend to pinched fingers... a little learning curve. i like the rubber wheels and the locks for them. for [$] i'm not complaining and it's small enough to fit in the sports car in a pinch.

                                    This is a great rolling stand - I use it to mount a 17" monitor on HD shoots.

                                        I bought this stand after getting a A5033 for a primary light. These stands are built like tanks, yet roll very smoothly and telescope very quietly. I will definitely be adding more for my studio.

                                          I use this stand with my new boom and beautylight.
                                          I love the wheels and the sturdy construction.
                                          I cant think of anything I dont like about this unit.
