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.

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

    Not bad for what it cost. It weighs a lot more than comparable Mathews and Avenger stands, so may be best suited for studio use unless you need the exercise. It's made in China and the fit & finish is not as good as the name brands but so far it's working ok when I need a bigger stand. In hind sight I would pay a bit more for the avenger which is outstanding.

      Really solid c-stand. I also attached casters to the bottom to be able to roll it around the studio. I'll be buying a few more I'm sure.

                Already have a C Stand by Kupo. This stand is just as good, but without the separate leg that can be put at a different elevation. This stand is solid and sturdy. It is not meant to be a portable stand, but the main post does come out of the legs for storage.

                  Not much to say about it other than it's well-built and works. Having it in black is nice in the off-chance you need to conceal it in a dark backdrop.

                      Are you looking for a stand? Stop looking and just buy this one. If you don't already own a C-Stand then this is a great place to start. The materials are high quality and the construction is solid. If you are still reading this review, you may being looking for some reassurance that you are getting a quality product, rest assured, it is great. Just grab a sandbag for the base if you are mounting anything heavy.

                          This is a solid, heavy duty stand, with the emphasis on heavy. With most of the weight on the center column, that translates to stability. I might not be so keen on the weight if I had to cart this beast onto location often. The quick folding base mechanism is genius.

                          I would point out to any prospective buyers two things that may or may not factor into your decision process:

                          1) the stand is quite tall (5'3") at it's lowest setting (40" riser + grip head of extension arm on top of turtle base). Just in case you're equipping a home studio.

                          2) the grip head on the extension arm is fixed at the end. That's probably where most people put it, but how it's attached is a mystery (the t-knob holes are empty. Is it welded? I don't know, but I hope it lasts).

                          At this price point, I don't think you can beat the value here and I will happily buy more if needed.

                          Product is exactly like the reviews described. The stand is very well built and the extension arm does what we want it to do. Very, very happy!

                          I was very surprise by how great this C-stand is. It's easy to put together and easy to open when on set. Looking for a C-Stand I say get this one. It came very quickly to my studio. As do all the things I order from B&H.

                              I don't have much to base my opinion on, this is my first c-stand, but it functions exactly as I had hoped. The stand is quite a bit heavier than I expected, which is great, it has enough weight to counter-balance a long boom pole and mic without feeling unsteady. I trust my Rode NTG2 hanging out there all day.
