I was very pleased with this purchase. I purchased the stand based on its very low floor footprint, and its much lower price than some almost identical stands by other manufacturers. I needed a stand that would get underneath chairs where there was not much room. My primary use is for microphones and live music recording.

The unit is extremely versatile as it fully comes apart. The body can be attached to most clamps and other stands as it has the standard 3/8ths and 1/4th inch threaded adapter (one size at each end of the pole which clamps into its base). In addition there are holes drilled on one of the stands legs to attach either a 1/4th or 3/8ths threaded adapter, so another stand is easily attached to the same base.

I really am satisfied as it suites a great deal of situations for me, and I find the low to the ground leg configuration much more suited to the conditions that I record in.

Does okay...

This is a nice little stand, with a flaw listed below.Since it's two separate pieces, it's very compact when stored.

This is a nice little stand, with a flaw listed below.Since it's two separate pieces, it's very compact when stored.

Expertise: Advanced amateur. Portrait Photography...

Problems Encountered: The nut on the bottom that holds the 3 legs to the stand itself comes loose constantly.This causes the stand to be fussy and not stand still unless the nut is tightened.

Previous Equivalent Item Owned: I own 7 Impact light stands total. 1 of the above, 2 x 8ft, 2 x 13ft boom, 9.5ft heavy duty stand all from B&H...

Items I Recommend: Impact 9.5ft Heave Duty stand is awesome if you need a bigger stand...

Not the best stand

Comments about Impact Two Section Back Light Stand (3'):

It's a bit underwhelming. The finishing on this stand seems a bit worse than your typical "light stand" finish. But worse yet is that mine didn't even stand perpendicular to the floor.

Comments about Impact Two Section Back Light Stand (3'):

I purchased 2 of these stands. One for holding a reflector for headshots and one for a kicker light. They do the job nicely. I'm pleased with them. I only wish they had an option between the top of the stand and the bottom for additional height options. Sometimes it's too tall for my headshot needs.

Useful, not solid.

Comments about Impact Two Section Back Light Stand (3'):

I wouldn't recommend this for on location use. It feels a bit "plasticky" and when used with the pole, it wiggles and it feels like when the wind blows, it might fall over.

    When not supporting my heavy (7-lb.) jecklin disk for audio recording, it serves well as a stand for my speedlight in photo sessions. Packs small and is useful in many situations.

      I purchased the stand based on its compact size and very low floor footprint and use the stand to light my background in studio. The stand can be used with or without the extension. Simple to use yet very sturdy stand.

        Comments about Impact Two Section Back Light Stand (3'):

        This stand can be used with or without the extra extension, so you can get really low if you need to, or pretty high at 3 feet. I use this as my backlight stand, and always take it on location because it comes in handy and folds down so small in 2 pieces. The base is heavy steel legs to allow it to hold most small back lights without worrying about sand bags, which end up touching the ground anyway.

              This stand is the perfect size to hold backlights. I also sometime mount a mic on the stand because the size is perfect. Well built stand with both 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threads to hold most back lights and possibly other items.

                Comments about Impact Two Section Back Light Stand (3'):

                Very simple and sturdy stand for background lights. This design allows for minimum height for my lights, with maximum stability. I switched from a mini Manfrotto stand that could not go this low. I bought these for my studio and travel kits. I use the riser in the studio. Not ideal for a weddings, since the legs spread very wide and will show behind a small dress.

                    Excellent low back light stand for ground level to 3' height lighting needs!
                    I can use the optional mount right on the floor, or from about 16" to 36" high.
                    Well-made for daily use! Good price, too!

                      Very well made and appears ot work as expected. Good for lighting the background and keeping the stand out of the frame. Can be used two ways, one with the column which is about 1.5 feet closed and 3 feet extended. You can take the column off and use it at just about ground level if needed. It is slightly heavy due to the steel fold out legs but this is also a plus, it keeps the stand very steady.
