question

Since the turtle base is removable, is the tall legs still able to go up and down the stand to accommodate standing on an uneven platform? It seem like it might not as the base is one assembly and the stand is another.
Asked by: Yi Fan C.
The C+ Stand does not have the sliding leg feature. This feature is available in the Sliding Leg C-Stand PN:756040

can extension arm carry Siros 800 S ?
Asked by: ZIHNI
Yes, the Siros 800 can either be mounted to the back of the Grip Arm with its 5/8" receiver or onto a 6" Collared Pin inserted into the Grip Head Attached to the Arm. The weight of the unit is within the capacity of the Arm, be sure to properly weight the base of the stand.

What are the dimensions of the base when collapsed? I want to see if it will fit in a pelican case I already own.
Asked by: Laura
I contacted Matthews concerning your inquiry. While they did not list the dimensions of the turtle base, they did state that they recommend the Pelican 1750 Long Case with Foam (Black), B&H # PE1750FB, for use with the Matthews Century C+ Stand with Removable Turtle Base, Black - 10.5'. It is the same case that is included with the purchase of the Matthews RoadRags C-Vival Kit - 18x24" (45.7x61cm), B&H # MARRCK, which includes the same light stand listed above.

I have some Matthews c-stands with the sliding leg. When standing behind those with the large leg forward, the middle leg is to your right and smallest leg to your left. I notice with the turtle base the smallest leg points right. Does this mismatch interfere when staging / nesting the stands together in a row?
Asked by: Andrew
The position of the legs on this Matthew C+ Stand with Turtle Base and Grip Arm Kit does not interfere with staging or nesting the stands together in a row.
