    Turtle Base C-Stand Grip Arm Kit (9.8', Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 157.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SOLID C STAND Great C stand as expected. I purchased this stand over Mathews because of slightly broader foot print diameter of Avanger(33) compared to Mathews(27), as described in B&H specification .... BUT that is not true... BOTH the C stands has got SAME foot print diameter. Overall, great professional C stand; solid build quality; heavy duty; yes, it is portable; thanks for turtle base. Great rubberised grip only for the 40 arm ... not for the actual stand.Chrome plating gives it more pro look compared to Mathews. Fully satisfied; Highly reccomended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and rugged product I use lights and diffusion in the field all the time--as well as blue or green screen--and I cannot do this sort of work without a rugged set of C-stands. These particular C-stands (with arms/clamps) are everything I need--heavy, rugged, and black to reduce glare and reflections. The turtle base legs disconnect and make storing these large stands in smaller car trunks or out of the way areas very handy. I wish they had foam rubber sleeves on the main post so that I don't get frostbite handling them in the winter but that's a minor complaint. Great product. Built very well. Can't beat the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turtle rocks In studio and some location use. The turtle base is a nice convenience for packing. Picked up the boom arm seperately and love it as well. Feel very confident in the boom stands stability with large modifiers over the Paul Buff boom used previously. Stand is very very solid and heavy duty. Buying another boom setup asap. If you're just planning on using it as a stand only without the need for a boom or the arm then for convenience you may be better served with another lighter portable stand. This is a bit much to lug around to locations regularly, especially if you have multiples. I use my Manfrotto's for that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer chrome Price point wise this product is amazing. The quality of this Italian made product is very apparent upon inspection. Only concern I have with anyone purchasing this is to learn how to properly sandbagging the base for maximum stability. Without sandbags this product is very stable. However for the safety of your subjects you must take caution since this stand is heavy. DONT FORGET to get a Avenger E650 6 Collar Pin to complete the kit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Industrial strength with elegant look Wow, this beast mixes beauty, ruggedness function and form. Love the chome polish that stays cool out in the heat and keeps its finish with everyday wear and tear. And this is a C stand that's made to take abuse, not the flimsy gear that you're always worrying about something breaking without the most delicate care. Of course, solid gear does come at a cost so be aware this stand is fairly heavy and the minimum length is 4' 5. OTOH, for lighter jobs you don't need to bother sadbagging this stand. So when you need the real deal this is your baby... err weapon!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow fantastic It is very good and fine product, very strong, worth the investment. I had to hold the 4x6 proforto soft box with Elinchrom Pro HD 500 which are bit heavy , at the first time on the extended arm, I was bit scared at first, but wow it holds it as it is for two days without moving a centimetre, I am so glad I got two of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Top Dawg! This stand is nothing below the best when it comes to weight, solidarity, Strength and quality as well as weight! The legs are easily detachable for easier transportation as i only have a car and it fits well in my 2007 Hyundai Azera trunk! Knobs are big and easier to work with, does not slip and holds it well! If you are looking for a stable, well built and solid boom stand that is easy to transport, look no further than this unit, you'll be glad you made the purchase... I am! ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorites in the studio. I bought a pair of these to use in a small photography studio. Their uses are infinite thru both the video and photography world, and after a certain point I think it's must have. Great for mounting beauty dishes, sm/med softboxes, holding reflectors, scrims, set items, gobos, almost anything. It's easier to use and more convenient to use than a boom in many cases. Buy baby pins to go with them for photography. Safety cables can be good too. Oh and sandbangs. I can't wait to get more. Their only disadvantage is that if your doing a multi-light setup and using several of these instead of lightstands, it gets really heavy, really fast. But having one with several light stands is great and replaces a boom. As far as build quality, and this specific kit that I bought. For my purposes and im guessing most other photographers like me these are perfect. Right height, comes with boom arm and grip head, and the turtle base means the legs come off so it can lay flat or be seperated. Built like a tank and from what I saw when I tried to get used ones, their value does not depreciate regardless how old they are.
