This 8' Photogenic Light Stand with 25" Caster Base has a 5/8" top stud. Caster base stands have a lower center of gravity than standard light stands, and are therefore more stable with heavier loads.

    Light Stand with 25" Caster Base (8') is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repeat Purchase I already had this stand in my studio and when I wanted to add one more light to my set up this was the only choice for me. I have a small studio and the stand is easy to move and takes up very little room. It is heavy enough to support a light with a softbox without added weight. I do have weight added to the stand that holds my largest softbox. I love the cushioned release so the light doesn't drop. You do have to get use to turning the whole stand to move a light not just the light itself. That's easy enough in order to have such convenience that this stand offers. All together I have four of these stands and never want to go back to the tripod stands in my studio.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stability and convenience I use this light stand in a professional studio environment. I previously had the same stand with a 19 caster base, and the 25 base is an improvement for stability. I can't imagine using a light stand without rollers to move the stand around. Quite sturdy. My only complaint on this particular stand is that it was a bit tricky to put together (screw holes did not match up easily) and the up & down action of the poles doesn't seem as smooth as previous Photogenic stands I've owned. Maybe a shot of lubricant would fix that right up, though.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I like this much better than the one with the smaller base. There is no fear of it turning over with a big soft box or modifier on it. It moves easily and lightly and makes a studio session go more smoothly. My only complaint is that the light stand rods can be a bit tight moving up and down and also can become unscrewed if one doesn't watch it. I bought 2 and would buy more if I ever replace the old models.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stands I thought the price for these stands was too high until I unpacked and assembled them. They are very sturdy, heavy, well worth the price. The only drawback is the adapter is a bit difficult to attach.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy This stand is very stable and the casters move smoothly over many floor types. The pole is strong and the overall appearance is great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not suitable for professional use Assembly: Getting the casters into the base requires (per Photogenic tech support) a household brick or 2x4 and a mallet. So if you don't happen to have these items in your studio, be prepared to purchase or bring from home. The casters are press fitted into the legs and are held in place with a brass ring. Per tech support, I'm to place the legs upside down on a hard surface - one that may easily scratch the surface - and use a mallet to pound the wheels into the sockets. When I attempted this the wheel appeared to go into the socket, but in fact the brass ring pushed out of the groove and the wheel promptly fell right out. The other wheels were relatively easy, but this one fought me for about 30 minutes. I finally won. Functionality: Well the main purpose of a light stand is to hold lights. Where I put them. I have Matthews and Avenger stands and a couple of cheap stands that came with a couple of small LED panels. All the stands do a great job of staying at the height I put them. Not this Photogenic stand. Raise... Tighten... Push... And down it goes. I cranked the knob HARD and the stand pushes right down with maybe 15 lbs of force. I wanted a rolling stand with 5 legs for increased stability when moving the stand. But a stand needs to actually hold my lights at the desired height and if it can't perform that simple task then the manufacture should either redesign it or call it something else. If you are looking for a decent stand, an Avenger or Matthews stand will cost about the same and work flawlessly for years. So save yourself the hassle and return shipping cost and go with Matthews or Avenger right from the start. (Other stands may be equally good but I can only vouch for what I have used)
