these stands are my only complaint from this impact lighting kit i purchased. i'm used to air-cushioned heavy duty PBL light stands, and these are just very flimsy. don't get me wrong, they work, and for indoor projects they will do fine, but i wouldn't take them outside and expect them to survive a day of shooting. I feel like I could snap these in half with just my bare hands. with proper care, they will last me. just need to be very careful with them. they are very lightweight. even with 20lb sandbags on them, it was swaying in the wind and it looked as if it would snap. scary!

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

They are exactly what I expected. Very light duty, nothing heavy, but for the price they work well to mount small led lights. i wouldn't use them for large heavy lights, but for my purposes they are great. They fold up easily and are light weight and easy to transport. A good value for the money.

Owned ones in the past. Not the sturdiest, but throw a weight on the bottom and you can take them just about anywhere!

I find that this software is easy to use and that it's wide variety of effects and adjustments are seemingly endless. I think that anyone wanting to add a little bit more spice to their pictures will enjoy this product.

For what these are worth its a good light stand. I don't own a strobe but I probably wouldn't try to support one on it if i did. Not horrible, but not the sturdiest. Flashes small lights mics should be good.

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

This isn't the highest grade lightstand on the market, but it is small, compact, light weight, and made well. I'll use it for traveling abroad and wouldn't want anything more to have to carry around with me. All in all, it's a great little product that costs just the right amount.

I bought two light stands to use color-corrected lights in my art studio, they fold and unfold very easily and seem durable enough for my purpose. My order was processed promptly and the items were appropriately packaged and without damage. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.

Great Stand for Indoor Activity

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

I purchased this stand for my GoPro to record volleyball footage. The quality is good as it supports well in indoor conditions. It will wobble slightly but I never noticed anything in the footage when in review. I like the stand it's light and portable. Very happy with my purchase.

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

I am using this to carry some led lighting - its large footprint seems to give real solidity and confidence that it won't be falling over in a hurry or be easily tipped over accidentally. Early days but it seems extremely good value.

Good Stand

By Will

Comments about Impact Light Stand, Black (6'):

I use this with a speedlight mounted to an umbrella swivel and a 32" umbrella. It's lightweight and easy to set up. My only real complaint is the extensions are a little too tight when trying to raise or lower the sections even when backing the set screw all the way out. I don't think I would use it for heavy duty lighting but for what I am doing it works great.

Smaller light weight light stand. I use it mainly for on location shoots, it's not meant for heavy duty stuff. Works great if you want something light and portable.

Don't expect to put much weight on this stand. It's good for a reflector or a small flash with a small light modifier
