      There is no perfect light stand. Anything you select will be too flimsy, too heavy, or too unstable, so the best you can do is find a good trade-off. For me, this is it.

      For its weight, it has quite a wide base, and extremely good build quality. It handles hot-shoe flashes with battery packs nicely. Softboxes below 30in are no problem. Probably not beefy enough for big modifiers or booms - but that's where the beastly A635B comes in.

      My one complaint is the layout of the leg locking knob. It's set up in a way that might crush one of the leg tube ends if over-tightened. Certainly not a deal-breaker, but something a user should watch out for. Nevertheless, the mechanicals are smooth, the locks solid, and the tubes rigid.

      Highly recommended as go-to, medium-duty stand.

      Not quite living up to the Avenger name

      Got a couple of these as I'm replacing older stands. Aside from the larger t-handles and footprint, the stand didn't seem much different from one of my older Impact or Interfit stands. Read complete review

      Got a couple of these as I'm replacing older stands. Aside from the larger t-handles and footprint, the stand didn't seem much different from one of my older Impact or Interfit stands.

      I have several c-stands and a couple wheeled stands from Avenger and I love them all. This one on the other hand, is more like an overpriced basic stand from the other guys.

          Comments about Avenger A625B 7.8' Light Stand (Black):

          Note that the folded length and min. height are really just over 27 3/8", or 697mm according to my tape. This fortunately still fits in my Lowel TO83 case, but it's larger than the published specs. I got this instead of an omni-tota stand, because I was tired of tightening the teeny Lowel knobs. These knobs are much easier to tighten, but a bit slower. There is a longer range of tightening, which is probably a good thing. Seems to be a great little stand, looking forward to long use. Will update any issues.

              Comments about Avenger A625B 7.8' Light Stand (Black):

              There's nothing ground breaking about the design of these, but they are the best rendition of the tried and true design we have all been using for years. Solid all aluminum construction. Light and compact but opens up to be very sturdy. Way sturdier than my Manfrotto BACs. These are great for portability.

              Comments about Avenger A625B 7.8' Light Stand (Black):

              The weight rating and pictures lead you to believe these are more solid than they are. I bought them for lightweight traveling to put on 1x1 led panels. The weight ratings suggest they should be able to handle it no problem, but I wouldn't extend them anywhere near max height without a sandbag. they are exceptionally light and compact though. I will probably buy a few more to replace my Lowel stands.

                  Very sturdy, compact versions of the bigger Avenger stands. I needed some extra space in my stand bag, so I replaced a couple of my 13' Avengers with these, and they work great. Plenty sturdy, and the work very smoothly. I use them with Alien Bees, and they have no problem, even fully extended.

                      This stand is very sturdy and is light and compact enough to carry with your gear. I use this stand as a portable stand on location and is usually fixed with a speedlite or a quantum t5d. You will need a bracket to mount either or the two.

                                    It's very steady and get the job done well.
                                    Nothing bad.
                                    I just started using it, so I'll see how long does it last, but it looks pretty durable.

                                      This product is a staple in my location kit! It's compact enough for shorter bags, yet extremely durable and exceptionally lightweight. Large offset turnbuckles make it easy and trusty to work with- I depend on it's ruggedness and reliability.

                                        Good lightweight, compact stand for the money. I used one with a medium sized softbox and it worked fine, it also held my medium sized fresnel great.

                                          I bought this stand to hold a boom during interviews. It is extremely lightweight but not too flimsy. Gets the job done great. Definitely needs to be sandbagged due to its light weight.
