Kupo 40" Master C-Stand Overview

The black, 9.7' Master C-Stand with Turtle Base from Kupo is used for mounting lighting equipment and a variety of light-shaping tools and accessories.

The C-Stand is a steel support with two risers and three sections that fully extend to a height of 9.7'. One great feature is the "turtle" base that detaches completely from the riser, allowing you to mount a light to it. The base has the classic wide, stable "C"-type legs that accommodate easy sandbagging and straddling of obstacles, folding flat for easy transport and storage. The detached riser can be used like a "trombone" or telescoping arm with the addition of the appropriate clamp or accessory. This 40" C-Stand features a 5/8" Baby Stud and patented ring-locking system that enables fast setup and breakdown.

Asked by: Andrew
All of the c stands are called Master C stand. The choices are Turtle base or sliding leg. The Turtle Base detaches the base from the riser. Sliding leg slides up & down the riser.

question

Does the large leg slide up?
Asked by: Robert N.
No. You want one of the sliding leg models for that. Look at Kupo Grip's web site. Having said that, I have several of the turtle base models and love them. Great design and construction.

question

Can this be used as backdrop stand? If so, is there a compatible variable pole? Finally, will these hold more than one backdrop at a time? Thanks so much.
Asked by: Monique R.
Some have used C-stands like this one to hold a single roll of seamless paper, particularly in the smaller 2ft or 4.5 ft widths while being secured with standard spring clamp. If your intention is to hold multiple background at one time, you may be better off getting a background support which offers an adjustable cross and which can hold different types of backgrounds. One such option is the Savage Multiple Polevault System (12.6' Width) B&H # SABGSMPV which can hold up to three backgrounds. Please see the image below for reference.
