    Avenger A5017 reviews

    Roller Stand 17 with Folding Base (Chrome-Plated, 8') is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality but Taller than listed It's a stand so there's not much to it, Avenger/Manfrotto so the quality is top notch. I got the roller as opposed to a C-stand to serve as a digital tech stand but the listed minimum just simply isn't true. Folded it's 38.5 long, standing on it's wheels the minimum height is about 42 It works great if I'm standing while at my computer(most of the time) but I would never really need to rise it and I can't sit at it. If the posted minimum were true(26) it would be perfect to sit and work while having the possibility to rise it to stand and work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good, but... Excellent build quality with the convenience of ease of mobility. My feeling is that ease of mobility comes with a trade off in stability compared to a traditional C-stand. If you are using this stand for a small or medium soft box, or parabolic, or beauty dish attached directly to top of stand it will do fine and allow you to easily reposition your light source. If you are booming a light source have a serious sandbag handy. Yes, you would sandbag a C-stand with boom also, I was just surprised at how quickly this stand wanted to tip with a boomed beauty dish (perhaps i needed more of a counter weight). In any event a pro caliber studio light stand, but know that your straight C-stand has an advantage in stability.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Stand This is the first Avenger Roller Stand I have purchased and it did not disappoint. The quality is amazing and it rolls around very easily, even on carpet. I use it for tethering my laptop to my camera on location. It works very well for that purpose. The only thing that was not so great is that the minimum height listed on the website was not what it actually is and it is a little high for me even at its lowest.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great, dependable stand I bought this stand after getting a A5033 for a primary light. These stands are built like tanks, yet roll very smoothly and telescope very quietly. I will definitely be adding more for my studio.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Rapid Lighting Setups Replaced a stationary c-stand video light with the Avenger A5017. Transferred the grip arm and light from from the c-stand to the rolling stand and can now change lighting setups in seconds. The stand is sturdy, lightweight and easily transportable. Couldn't give it 5 stars due to the leg locking mechanism, but it performs well with no issues so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality This stand is well built, good strong materials used, and rolls with ease. Ill see how this holds up over time, but works great right now - would recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great roller stand The stand is solid, great build and easy to move around. I'm using it with a medium and large octagon modifier and great to manage your beauty dish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond my expectations - I want more I have a number of Profoto monolights and softboxes, beauty dish, reflectors, grids and other modifiers. I was using the light stands that came with and added some wheels. One broke and I decided to buy a couple new ones and stumbled on these. i bought two really not knowing how sturdy they would be. They roll so smoothly and no fear of tipping. Not really too portable but wouldn't heistate to pack them up if I needed to. Going to replace all my light stands with these.
