This Impact Turtle Base C Stand (5.9') 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 stand has a low center of gravity which allows mounting of heavy equipment without tipping. The legs are perfectly shaped for saddlebag-type sandbags. A light head can be mounted to the base directly with the aid of an optional stand adapter. The base allows individual legs to be set at any angle, and can be positioned in locations not possible with standard design stands.

        Comments about Impact Turtle Base C-Stand - 5.9' (Chrome):

        This is my first C-stand and I didn't know how beef and strong they would be. I was more then impressed when I got it. It worked great, and couldn't believe I hadn't pulled the trigger and bought one sooner. I used this with a boom pole holder and it worked great.

        Comments about Impact Turtle Base C-Stand - 5.9' (Chrome):

        I bought this stand to balance my Glidecam HD4000. This thing is built like a tank and holds my Glidecam and my Panasonic AC130a with ease. I was concerned it might be liable to tip given the AC130 weight (not using a DSLR) but this stand is as solid as a rock. A must have for Glidecam usesers. Also recommend getting the mounting bracket. It's pricey but it is worth it.

          I needed this short C-stand for docking plate I built for my camera stabilizer.
          I set the level and balance just the right height.
          Impact stands are real sturdy.
          also use it for reflectors at a low angles.

          Comments about Impact Turtle Base C-Stand - 5.9' (Chrome):

          We like the heft, durability, and stability of C stands and use them on nearly every shoot. We've tried them all but the Impact stands are top of line quality for reasonable money. That's called a good value.
