I have held off on writing a review on these until I’ve had the chance to use them for quite a while. About 6 months later I can say that these were one of the best risks I’ve ever taken on gear. I picked them up for a shockingly, “too good to be true” price with free shipping. I figure the shipping alone on these things probably accounts for a large portion of the cost as they are very heavy which is what you want in a C Stand. Why Amazon has a “light weight” rating on here is just silly... You don’t want that. There isn’t much to say beyond that these are holding up great so far. Two quality C Stands with boom arms. You even get a bag for each stand which holds everything together. The bags are not good by any stretch of the imagination and I’d be surprised if they last another year or two, but they do work. I consider the bags just an added bonus. For the price these cannot be beat. Over the past six months I have watched them steadily go up in price. I bet they were pricing them low at first to get ratings and will eventually stabilize at a more profitable price. You won’t regret this purchase. If you are new to C Stands you need to know a few things. You absolutely have to buy sandbags for the base as well. These are huge and very heavy. They are nothing like your average tripod stands and far superior in every way.
Great price and great product. Some are complaining about the bag. I guess they might then consider paying more for stands that don't come with a bag. Mine was delivered packed in the bag inside the box and I enjoyed the way there were pockets for different portions of the stand. Might be last I see of the bags as I don't location shoot a lot. It also came with 3 little plastic bonus clips which are handy. The black grip on the pole comes loose a little easy but so far I don't rely on it to move the stand.
The stands are well built. They will last for years. The bags are garbage. The handle to the bag literally ripped as I pulled it out of the shipping box. Looks like I need to find some third party bags for these because I doubt I will get two months out the bags.
This c-stand is very stable and seems to be quality made. I have owned other c-stands and this fits right in with the brands that cost twice the price. I don't use my c-stands everyday for large productions so I cannot speak to that. For everything I do, these work very well. Don't forget to get sandbags for proper use.
Bought 2 C stands and they work perfectly..the only things is that they're not 100% metal. It's good weight wise but I have some Quasar lights that are magnetic that they wouldn't stick onto these c-stands. That's probably why it's priced at what it's at because they're not metal. Otherwise a solid purchase that does exactly what it's suppose to do.
Surprisingly impressed with these. They’re hefty, tough and work exactly as they should!
Best Value for a Heavy Duty C-Stand. Period. I have purchased 2, and I have 2 more on order. Same quality as other C-Stands I have used (Mathews, etc.) The carry bags are icing on the cake! Well laid out and makes for easy transport.
Love these! Work flawlessly! Highly recommend!
