Manfrotto 1005BAC-3 reviews

Alu Ranker Air-Cushioned Light Stand Quick Stack 3-Pack (Black, 9') is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Stands! This is my first purchase as a serious photographer who is trying to start my own business. These stands are very very sturdy, I was surprised by this because they were not that expensive.They have a nice wide stance and grip my wooden floors nicely so when I am moving around and bump one it does not move. The adjustable height is amazing because they comfortably fit into my studio and travel outside well. I have not used them much outside yet but on the dry ground (cleared of course) they sat fine and the weight of my strobes do not cause them to waver even the slightest. So far I love these stands!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Stands The stands has a locking mechanism that when closed locks them together and transporting them around would be easier. But I have been transporting them in a bag, so I have not been making use of this feature much. Also, locking three of them together is quite heavy, you will probably need a strap. When the stand folds up the legs are not around the middle shaft. Instead the legs are almost next to each either, so that the stand is almost flat. (not sure if that makes any sense). I am indifferent about this design, just something different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great On Site Stands!! Primarily used for on site lighting for wedding and portrait sessions. Light weight and very sturdy. The efficient clip together design makes packing and transport a breeze. Currently have five and will order more as we need them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible - Great Light Stands I got these a few weeks ago and am not sorry. They are easy to set up, and they pack away and hook together with a ease. I have used these stands with a fellow photographer and when I decided to buy my own stands, there was really no debating. Very strudy stand with nice wide base and great height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great light stands I previously had the 1052 model, which where shorter and lighter. When I received these units I noticed they were heaver and thicker, and I thought uh oh, I should've ordered the other ones. But now I'm glad I didn't. They are sturdier and I feel more confident hanging heavier items on them, like a sound blanket clamped onto a t-bar. I have 6. great for almost any interview setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Manfrotto 1005BAC lightstands I have four of these stands and anticipate buying a few more - probably some 1004BACs next time. The stands are EXCELLENT. I'd give 'em six stars if I could. I store, and transport, my four 1005BACs in a Manfrotto LBAG110. This bag should be regarded as a necessity. It is very inexpensive and was obviously designed for a perfect fit when loaded with FOUR Manfrotto 1005BAC stands. There's even adequate space for an umbrella or two along with the stands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, sleek, sturdy, east to use Strong and sturdy. The way they stack together is awesome. The only downside is that they don't appear to have casters they can be used with. I'd love to have the ability to roll them around my studio or on-location instead of having to pick them up, loaded with a monolight and umbrella or softbox, in order to avoid scratching my floors. I guess I should have researched that better but I don't find on the website a comparable light stand set that DOES accept casters. But, overall, Manfrotto has offered a great product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good! Excellent design! They are very strong, stable and light. I can load them with my heaviest studio lights and accesories and they stay stable. They extend high enough for highlighting hair,or doing some special effects. Paradoxically they are also light, so they are easy to carry along. Besides, they can be stacked together(several of them), flat, with a built-in clip which is fantastic and carry to the field or keep them in a tight space (excellent design!). The air cushioned system is good but I have seen stronger and much safer air-cushioning systems stands for heavier lights. Overall, I love them!
