  • 1Description

The Manfrotto Alu Ranker Air-Cushioned Light Stand is a black anodized aluminum stand that rises to a maximum of 9'. This stand is an updated version of the older "Stacker" series.

The patented Quick Stack System (QSS) offers enhanced portability. Connecting the stands together saves a lot of room while storing them in the studio or location case.

The 1005BAC Ranker features a removable, reversible spigot for added fixture mounting versatility. And for improved maneuverability, the legs accept the Manfrotto #018 caster wheel set.

Air cushioning prevents damage to fingers and equipment if you forget to fully tighten the stand sections

    Manfrotto 1005BAC reviews

    Alu Ranker Air-Cushioned Light Stand (Black, 9') is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 50.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get the 1004BAC instead for extra height Excellent location stands - but I mistakenly ordered the 1005BAC instead of the 1004BAC when I needed an extra stand. Will not repeat that mistake now, finally learned the difference the hard way. The 1005 seems a bit pointless, really, unless you really need the exchangeable spigot feature, as you otherwise sacrifice one extra section extension against the spigot. I would prefer the extra height of the 1004BAC Master stand anytime. Otherwise these stands are identical. I love them for their compact travel size when stacked, added safety of air cushion, and price/quality ratio. The 1004 BAC (not the 1005BAC) is the best location stand I have found so far.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak Link Ruins Stand I am a professional photographer shooting for weddings and commercial assignments. Manfrotto is always an excellent bet, except for here it seems. There is a tiny clip attached to the stand by two really weak pins. Turning that clip/lever is supposed to allow you to tighten/loosen the legs. The pins holding the clip on snapped the third time I used it (I had to find a pair of pliers to get it down and back home). The second stand I bought, the pins have yet to snap, however, the pins are attached to a screw/nut system, so that instead of tightening or loosening the legs, it simply turns the whole screw around in the hole. It's clearly a new design they were trying that has failed. Go with a stand that has the traditional knobs to tighten or loosen the legs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good, space saving quality stands Sturdy enough for my Profoto Airs, provided I use sandbags for added stability, and pretty light to carry around. I decided on buying these because of the stacking function and they were very well, however the reason I am giving them 4 stars is because it sometimes takes additional effort to make them lock, the system is very good and it might requiere just getting used to it. Once they re locked it is great to be able to carry them as one single stand without them bouncing and moving around. They stay locked and do not move at ll while being transported. The large Manfrotto bag can sore 4 of these and it is a very convenient way to transport them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, high quality light stand The reason I think this light stand is the one of the best is because... 1) It is almost 100% metal (no plastic junk parts to loosen over time or crack/break. 2) If you have more than one of these stands, you can stack them together so they don't flop around in the back of your car (or in a bag). 3) It's rock-solid sturdy. It may not be the lightest stand out there, or the cheapest, but it's one of the best (if not the best) quality stand out there for the 9 foot range. Would I buy it again, absolutely...I'm planning on getting 2 more soon!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made solid light stand. I'm a semi-pro photographer using the Manfrotto stand for location shoots. This is the second one I bought. I like the fact that it collapses to a flat profile and I can click two or more together to keep them from rolling around the trunk of my car. I also like the metal lever bolt that sets up the legs. The remaining hardware is a cut above the average light stand. Wjile the Manfrotto is a bit more expensive that some lesser made stands, the hardware is likely to hold up much better and will be worth the price in the long run.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Light Stand, Great Design Because of their attention to detail and use of high-quality materials, I have been a longtime fan and owner of Manfrotto accessories. This 9' Air Cushioned Light Stand is the perfect stand to replace my set of Manfrotto 5001B Nano stands. I was very impressed with the design of the stands in Alu Ranker series - the way that they fold reduces the space required to store them, and they even stack together for ease of transport. This stand is very durable - I won't have to worry about it being bumped into during wedding receptions and because of the large span of the base legs, I can't imagine it tipping over very easily even in windy, outdoor conditions. I'll be purchasing more of these stands!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stand, super durable! This was the first Manfrotto product that I have ever bought and I must say that I'm surprised of the value of this stand. I bought a pair to use to hold up studio strobes. They are strong, sturdy, and the air cushion is very smooth. They fold flat and have a locking system on each one so they can be locked into each other for easy transport.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional, Light and Durable To date, used indoors for studio shots with a Manfrotto boom to hold a 28 beauty dish on a remote monolight head on one end counterbalanced by the monolight power unit on the opposite end of the boom. Attach the counterweight from the boom to the bottom of the stand to add stability. Can be used outdoors in reasonably calm conditions with sandbags. Any fair-sized light modifier has a decent amount of sail area so caution would have to be exercised outdoors should the wind pick up. Plan to perform location shooting, so weight was a factor in the decision. Stands demonstrate a good deal of thought in design and are well-constructed. If you want stands that are light in weight and durable, I'd definitely recommend these.
