    Avenger A2030D Reviews

    Turtle Base C-Stand (9.8', Chrome-plated) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy Professional Great Price The Avenger Turtle Base C-Stand is solid, sturdy and has many uses. I use two of them for high Slide Rail shots with video. I also use one for vertical slide rail shots. Very reasonably priced for such a professional piece of equipment. Easy setup not as heavy as I thought at 13 pounds each. I trust these stands and love the removable base. One slight drawback is that the risers are not spring loaded which could result in bruised fingers if not careful. Most likely why they are priced more reasonable. Just be careful, pay attention and you'll be fine. These are top notch highly professional stands at a great price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for stable riggin I've been using these almost exclusively for light supports with the 40 grip arm to give clearance for softboxes and umbrellas. A bit heavy but the weight helps in the wind outdoors. The 40 grip gets the light way up there. You have to be careful since there is not air cushioning built in and you can get pinched by the sections sliding down. I've got chrome and black painted versions. The chrome does not show the wear and tear as much. No flex and bind as found in lightweight stands. They don't fit in many bags and you can probably only manage to carry 2 at a time comfortably with base attached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Avenger tall C-stand is a standout This is a great C stand for all kinds of photography and video. I purchased this with an Avenger telescoping mini-boom and it is a great combination. I mount studio flash heads with light modifiers on this combo without problems. I also use it with continuous lights (softboxes) for video. In portrait photography, it is often flattering to light a model with a softbox obove the model at a 45 degree angle (and a v-flat or reflector below). This stand and the boom make that effortless. In product photography, the light needs to come straight down onto the product and this is almost impossible to do in any other way. Yes, it is heavy, but the sturdiness sets it apart from other light stands. No, I would not carry a pair of stands, light modifiers, camera bag and tripod on the subway during rush hour. But in the studio there is nothing like these stands (and boom arm).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment ever These guys leave me with a happy feeling when I have my lights on them. I know they are not going anyplace and this lets me spend time shooting and not wondering if my lights will fall over. GET THEM

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable I bought two of these for a film trip to Peru - and they are wonderful for travel. It was extremely difficult to find a solid C-Stand that was also portable and light enough to fly as luggage. I would definitely recommend these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Its a great product, This is my second one, I used to have some cheap stands before, Ones I bought my First Avenger C stand, I saw the difference, you pay more money but you can count on theis product,, Its heavy, not easy to travel but but if you need to put heavy equipment on it or use with a boom pole thats what you need. Great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Stands These stands are of excellent construction and very classy looking in the studio. They are easy to use and breakdown for travel. They are heavy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a super stand!!! I originally bought one of these C stands over 20 years ago and its is still with me today, I use it to hold my very heavy Elinchrome Mono-lights, Its keeps them safe secure and virtually unmovable.The perfect solid stand for use in a busy catering hall with alot of foot traffic, I couldn't be happier with my set.

    I have the Paul buff 86 plm system. Will this stand hold up to the size and weight? And will this allow the light to drop to the floor
    Asked by: Nicole D.
    The Avenger Turtle Base C-Stand (9.8', Chrome-plated) has a maximum load capacity of 22 lbs (10 kg). While Paul C. Buff's website does not list the weight of their 86 White PLM Umbrella, it does not weigh that much and it should be compatible for use with your light fixture on this light stand. The minimum working height of the Avenger Turtle Base C-Stand is 4.4 feet (1.34 m), which is the lowest the light stand will go to the floor during operation.

    What is the length of the riser detached from the base?
    Asked by: Peter M.
    I am not sure, I have never had it detached. It is at our office, but I am on a trip now.
