    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.

      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.

                    These stands work well but with a heavy light hanging over, they can get a little wobbly. They work good for light duty stuff and are well built. I would def but again

                    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.

                                These function as expected. Easy to attach lighting to and adjust.

                                          This came as a part of a kit with an Impact 400 ws monolight. This stand, in my opninion, is too weak to safely hold such a heavy light, especially once a modifier (like a large beauty dish) is attached. A better stand can be purchased for a little more. Since it came with a kit and I have plenty of other heftier stands, I'll keep this one around for holding speedlights, but not the 400 ws monolight that came with the kit.

                                            I bought the Impact set, which includes the 60" umbrella and umbrella bracket. Was very easy to setup, and the hot shoe was a perfect fit for my Speedlight SB-700. The 60" umbrella is also the perfect size, which spreads the light better.
