    These stands are durable, air cushioned, and lightweight. They are part of a Genaray/Impact LED light kit I needed for training videos that I produce for retailers who sell my company's products. I have a very small space in the corner of a warehouse where I must shoot these videos;I don't have a lot of room, so a small platform is essential. They seem durable enough for travel, as long as you have a case that's padded. The LED light heads I use are pretty lightweight, but I will be getting some small sandbags in case I need to raise the lights to a potentially-shaky height.

    I got these stands with a pair of Genaray LED Lights that I purchased for lighting interviewees on a short film documentary. Given the fact that I am working in a set space these stands get the job done, but I wouldn't dare take them out in the field. They are extremely light and feel flimsy, and even sandbagged, I wouldn't feel confident putting my lights on them. If you're indoors, in a controlled environment, who cares, sandbag and enjoy. They will get the job done. Just be wary of taking them outdoors and beating them about.

          Comments about Impact Air Cushioned Light Stand, Black - 10' (3m):

          Tried using light for both video and stills, at the same time and they work great.

          No high heat, just great lighting.

          Only thing wrong is the stands are way to light weight of the heavy light unit.

          I had B & H exchange the stand for a heavy duty stand and paid the difference of $25.00 each.

          Very satisfied with these light and recommend them for video and stills.

          Comments about Impact Air Cushioned Light Stand, Black - 10' (3m):

          These stand are a little flimsy you will need sand bags for these with out a doubt. However they function properly and get the job down. I would say that these are entirely professional but they are good if you are just starting out. I will probably end up replacing these in the future

              I use this with an umbrella and speedlight and it works perfectly. It is sturdy and trustworthy.

              Very easy to adjust and quick and easy to store. Perfect for home studio or outdoor photography.

              You will need to get an umbrella bracket with adjustable shoe to use flash and umbrella.

                          I like the easiness of this stand and now understand why the air cushioning is important. Only thing I would change, is to add some sandbags over the legs to make more stable. With my ab400 and Apollo soft box, I could see it falling over with a slight run in.

                            I use this stand for my lights and umbrellas and it's easy and efficient.

                            It's super light to carry and quick to set up. But that may also be the problem. SO light that a kid can knock it over. Other than that, it's great!

                                I've got no issue with these stands, in fact I really like them. Of course they can't compare in quality or stability to real C stands but for their weight and portability they are fantastic. I'm not sure how comfortable I would be using these outside, definitely need to get some sand bags on them if you plan on doing so.

                                      I use these as supplemental stands for LED lights, flags, reflectors, and other lightweight items. Solid and sturdy. I wouldn't put anything big or heavy on them, but they fit nicely in my production kit as a midsize stand.
