Product Highlights
  • 11' Height
  • 5/8" Stud
  • Maximum Load: 22 lb

The Kupo Master 40" C Stand with Sliding Legs is an all steel support with 2 risers and 3 sections and that extends to a height of 131.9". One great feature of this stand is the "turtle" base that detaches completely from the riser allowing you to mount a light to it. The base has a wide, stable footprint of 39.37" and the classic "C" type legs that allow for easy sandbagging and straddling of obstacles and fold flat for easy transport and storage. The detached riser can be used like a "trombone" or telescoping arm with the addition of the appropriate clamp or other accessory. This 40" C stand features a 5/8" "baby" stud and a patented ring locking system that enables fast setup and breakdown.

          Comments about Kupo Master 40" C Stand with Turtle Base (Black Powder Coated):

          This stand is everything and more. Solid, strong,and easy to use. It supports my Avenger Boom arm (D600) with ease. I needed a stand that would suport my boom arm with a mono light and softbox attached. With a sand bag on the end it is counter balanced perfect plus it does not flex or bend at all. It sets up and tears down in a flash with the signature ring locking base. You can watch the video about this stand on the B&H web site.

            Comments about Kupo Master 40" C Stand with Turtle Base (Black Powder Coated):

            C-stands are probably my favorite stand. I love how the legs are designed allowing them to be stored in a minimum of space. I think I have seven of them now in my studio and they get used more than any other stand. I have four Kupo 40" riser C-stands. I'm not slighting my Mathews stands but I think the Kupo's are a bit heavier duty. They are heavier by weight for sure, but rock solid. The leg quick release feature is not something you really think about until you use it. What a slick idea! I'm using one pair as background stands right now with a Impact Vari-drive chain system. Works perfect with a muslin or roll of seamless. I have one supporting a Rime-Lite 79" parabolic softbox using the grip head and arm. Not even tippy. These are really great stands.

                I bought two of these for backdrop stands. They are super sturdy even when extended in height and I no longer worry about the backdrop collapsing. I use a Photoflex Background Pole and it's an awesome setup. I am very happy and I now own four Kupo Turtle stands. I'm slowly replacing all of my light stands. The accessories are really good, too.
