      Comments about Kupo Runway Stand Base:

      The guys in the grip/lighting dept. at B&H didn't even know they sold this thing - they were crowded round and drooling on it when I asked to see it and it was brought from the stock room. They all said they were going to buy one as its so well made and such good value. I notice it's now on back order, presumably because they cleared the inventory between them!Anyway, I've been using it for a couple of weeks and I love it but the spars could ideally be about six inches longer to give it better stability. That said, I just take extra care by adopting the following rules. I don't use it with the riser above nine feet. I lower the riser to about six feet before moving the wheels. I don't load it up with anything more than a monolight and a mid-size modifier. I always counter-weight it.I always use a 20 lbs sandbag on it. I always lock all three wheels.Great product, very well constructed, excellent value, I'll buy two more when they're back in stock

      Love the ability to quickly position what ever is put on this stand. The ability to change it from various sized poles is a great feature. I recently updated my studio stands to Kupo and it has been a perfect solution to my needs. Great quality, fair pricing.

            Comments about Kupo Runway Stand Base:

            I see myself using this for the next decade or two. It is a tank. It is one of those things that you should invest in early because it will be useful from day one, especially if you have a heavy boom stand that you're always pushing and pulling to hit that sweet spot. It is everything I want in a rolling stand base.

                I own a few Kupo C-stands- which are component based heavy duty light stands. I decided to give them wheels. These are great! Smooth, lockable, collapsible and extremely well made.

                  Comments about Kupo Runway Stand Base:

                  Outstanding value, compact, strong construction, quality build. Heavy weight will make this a studio only base. wheels rolls smoothly, locking and unlocking have separate tabs that make very convenient to use. Small footprint will require heavier weight bags when using boom. flat spreaders allow laying plywood or box which helps hold more or bigger sand bags.
