This Impact Master Century C Stand Kit (10.75') is comprised of a C-stand, 2.5" grip head and 40" extension arm. The stand features a patented locking mechanism that allows the legs to swing out and lock into place for easy setup and collapse flat for storage. The included extension grip arm fits neatly into the stand's removable 2.5" grip head, allowing you to offset the stand and cantilever flags, gobos or lights out of the way of the action. The stand has a low center of gravity which allows mounting of heavy equipment without tipping. The legs are perfectly shaped for saddlebag-type sandbags. The kit is also often used as a short boom.

Fold-away, twist and release locking legs.
Durable finish resists all weather conditions.
Innovative design on the Century Stand base allows individual legs to be set at any angle, and can be positioned in locations not possible with classic stands.
Ergonomic "T" shaped handles are "captive" -- they do not come off of the stand when unscrewed, preventing loss.
Each riser section has an external rubber gasket, which protects your equipment and fingers from sudden drops in stand elevation.

I couldn't be happier than I am with these Impact stands!! Yes, they're heavy, but I shoot a lot of my work outside on location, and the weight keeps them from being top heavy. I can set them up as high as they go with a couple sandbags and a smaller (2x3) sofbox, and they never budge. I'll be buying the shorter version next, as well as the Roller Stand with the folding base for my studio. Great Product!!

Yes, it's heavy, but I view that as a good thing.
Could be sturdier.

The Stand itself is good. I like the base locking mechanism for the legs. It really makes that portion of the set-up a breeze. Unfortunately, every second you gain from that and then some is lost when the grip heads stick... and they do stick. You need to keep a long, thick screwdriver on you at all times to pry it loose.

Like at least one other reviewer has mentioned, in the future I think I'll just get the stand alone and buy some Avenger, Manfrotto or Matthews Grips to go along with it.

      I haven't had a chance to use the Turtle Base C-Stand but it is sturdy and all parts connect easily. I chose the black color which I am hoping will cut down on sun glare.

      I look forward to using the C-Stand soon.

      Great stand, great price!

      By Russell Kilgore

      from Riverdale, Georgia

      Comments about Turtle Base C-Stand Kit - 10.75' (Chrome):

      When I was looking to purchase my first set of c-stands, I went back and forth about which brand to purchase. With a tight budget, I saw these and decided to give them a try. What a great decision on my part! I was pleasantly surprised by the construction quality. I have since purchased additional stands in both black and chrome. Compared to other brands, these are a bit heavier but I don't mind the added weight. I feel confident that my lights are stable and secure when in hear stands and I'm pretty sure that I'll purchase more of these stands in the coming months.

      Comments about Turtle Base C-Stand Kit - 10.75' (Chrome):

      I love this stand! It's much more solid and thick than the pictures here on the site would lead one to believe. Very versatile, and when paired with a multi clamp or pivot head, the possibilities are endless. Very sturdy, but if mounting a heavy light fixture on the boom arm, a counter weight may be needed, but that's to be expected for most booms. It is heavy, but on the flip side, if you plan to use this outdoors, I wouldn't worry about it tipping over even in windy conditions, that's the trade off. Very happy with this purchase!

        I have three others, we use them in our studio, I love how sturdy and tall they are. We've even taken them on location a few times, they banged around in the trailer on the way, no problems there. Very strong, made to last, I love them.

                      As soon as these stands were unboxed, they immediately went to work holding heavy lights above talent's heads. They wobble a little more than I'm used to when unencumbered, but once they have weight and sandbags on them they're solid.

                            We own quite a few of this version C-Stand and it's been a solid piece of equipment. The lever to close the legs for transport is great. Make sure you have someone who knows what they are doing using these-- if you don't align the pin when closing the grip heads, you're going to have a fun little arts and crafts time with a hammer getting it back into place. This are a little on the heavier side, but you should expect that. Very durable. I'm sure I'll be buying many many more of these in the next few months.

                            This is my first C Stand. I have and use many different light stands and especially like my Manfrotto 1004BAC 144-Inch Air Cushioned Stands but when I got this C Stand I wondered why I haven't got one sooner. Very solid and versatile. Turtle base is a must for portability.

                                        Sturdy, well built and easy to set up. Arrived on the day promised, so was able to shoot on day one. Fairly heavy, but that's good for stability. Stows easily for location shooting. A little pricey, but well worth it.

                                        Not only does it look great, but it's really well built and strong. A good variation to the standard and normal looking silver version.

                                            The stands are durable and heavy, making them ideal for securing valuable lighting equipment. However, the spring lock on the base doesn't work as fluidly as I'd like. It doesn't have the same "snap" that some other brands have that I've seen. With that being said, the durability and performance of everything else on the product outweighs that negative mark. Not to mention if you leave the stands setup most of the time, that feature won't really matter.
