It seems to be a better design than the original kit stand. Time will tell.

Comments about Arri AS-2 Lightweight Light Stand (8.5'):

I have two ARRI AS-2 stands I purchased a decade ago as part of my portable light kit for video jobs. They are high quality and built to last. I was in need of a third AS-2 stand to be used as an antenna mast on my sound cart for field location recording and decided to order a new AS-2. The good news: the bottom legs were easily and completely removed without the need for any drilling and the center column fit the brackets on my audio cart perfectly as a mast. The not so good news: the quality of the stand is lacking. The tube thickness is thinner and the tripod legs are not as beefy or sturdy as older models. When I purchase ARRI products I'm willing to pay more in order to get more quality. ARRI dropped the ball on build quality of this particular stand. Will I purchase more new AS-2 stands? No. In the future I'll keep shopping for older, used AS-2 stands instead and purchase them to expand my light kit.
