Matthews Medium Duty Overview

Designed primarily for use in lighting kits, the Matthews Medium Duty Kit Stand with Brake is compact and light weight. This black finish stand employs a brake shoe system for locking off the riser tubes as opposed to pinch castings, thus permitting the use of heavier fixtures.

why did I wait so long

After years of struggling with lite stands I finally made the decision to buy this Matthews stand. What a difference. Stable and strong. Top quality. Hardly any weight or size difference between this stand and my light weight Manfrottos. Top quality product. for those times a c-stand is too much. I'm buying more.

This light stand is best and durable quality I have been looking for. It doesn't slide down and top piece doesn't snap off. Also it hold my strobe weight without bending my stand. Best one to get!!

Perfect for smaller lights

These are Matthews quality and small enough for a portable kit. Good for smaller lights, a 12-lb light challenges it's limit.

Great stand! Very sturdy, even with significant wind with a good sandbag. I use these with Litepanels Astra 1x1s and feel very confident they will protect my investment and have a great range of height options. Would recommend. Will buy additional when needed.

Tons of light stands out there, these are by far the best I've tried. Simple, sturdy. Closer to a C-Stand in durability and reliability... but it's a Light Stand. I love it. If you're looking for a stand for your medium sized film light or flash, look no further!

good price, simple but one basic flaw

If you are after a solid and simple stand then this one is great... but the spigot adapter at the top is poorly designed and too wide to take Manfrotto superclamps and some other attachments widely used.

Great

Asked by: Steve
According to Matthews, the Matthews Kit Stand Wheels (Set of 3), B&H # MAWS22KS • MFR # 387102, were the correct caster wheels for use with the Matthews Medium Duty Kit Stand with Brake - Black, 7.7'. Unfortunately, it appears these casters have been discontinued and are no longer available to purchase. As an alternate option, the Impact 22mm Locking Casters (Set of 3), B&H # IMLSALW22, may work as an alternative for your usage needs.

question

Would this work well for a Profoto B1X with say a 3 or 4 lb modifier attached? Do you think it would be OK with an arm so I can use for top / hollywood lighting?
Asked by: F s.
Should take the weight just fine, Iam not sure about the arm If the are is fully extended it might be too much weight.
