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!

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.

It's a small stand, very sturdy to size and very useful for flashes and lights without soft box or other big and heavy products, doesn't take big storage space

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

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

Dunno how much weight it will hold as I only use it for hair light but what do you really need for that? Expands to about 8'. Going to buy another at this price.

      It works with Raya softbox 24'

      By Dolgman

      from Simi Valley,ca

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

      I bought 2 of them fo speed lights. It works great with Raya 24' doftbox and Raya 42' reglector and Avenger rh353 reflector holder. But fo reflector is better to use a sandbag but if you dont have one , you can play with legs of tripod snd make it work.
