Kupo 40" Master C-Stand Turtle Base 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.

Kupo 40" Master C-Stand Turtle Base Reviews

High quality stands

I've owned or worked with Matthews, Avenger, and Impact stands, but these Kupos are my favorites. They're super heavy duty with large knuckles that make locking a breeze. The quick release system on the turtle base is a nice touch as well.

Well built and sturdy.

I shopped a long time before settling on the Kupo. It's well built and sturdy enough to support a Profoto 5' octabox in the bonnet/overhead position. Originally I was looking for spring cushioned sections in case the risers suddenly collapsed for whatever reason. The Kupo does not have this feature; however, the internal braking system between the riser sections eases lowering of the risers even when fully loaded (though you still should be careful). This has exceeded my expectations. I will be buying two more in the near future.

Classy & Strong

Great quality, solid, boom strong enough to hang large painting from it. While lowering and raising, you must hang onto the moving piece, as there is no air pressure stop. If you want light weight, don't buy this, but I like the weight for being sturdy for location shoots. For studio you might want to add casters to roll it around.

Its very good material but it gets stuck

I got this stand after reading several reviews on other saying it gets stuck from where it holds the grip and this one does the exact same thing. I just opened it and its stuck! I paid $150 more for this not to happen and still got stuck with the same problem! When you try to make it less loose the top part comes off without the screw so be careful not to make it really tight or you will have a serious problem! Im disappointed I feel like returning it and getting my money back and pay less.. it has the same problem anyways so what's the upgrade?

C STANDS!!

Have to have them! I love this brand. The build is amazing. These things are not as heavy as I thought. I ended up getting a rolling case so thats helpful when transporting!

Worth it

Use this for my photoshoots and it holds my lighting gear easily. It's a little on the heavy side but definitely worth the money. Very happy with this purchase!

never want to go back

Easy to open, easy to close, easy to pack, sturdy and heavy... what's not to love?
