This is holding my XPRO 400W without any problem. So far, I didn't need to extend it all the way to 13' but I'm sure that it'll still be sturdy at that height. It's easy to deploy and adjust. Best stand I used so far!
I got these as an upgrade to my portable backdrop stand. Although I haven't used them yet, I can tell they are awesome. All metal, and a much wider base than my old ones, so they will be way more stable. And as a light stand they are going to be nice and sturdy too. They are quite a bit bigger than what I was using before, but if it keeps my gear from hitting the floor, it's worth it!
The only stands that you will ever want to buy guaranteed!
I've got to tell you this stand is amazing I was looking for good stand and then I stumbled onto this one wasn't quite sure. Luckily for me they had some videos and I watched the videos and I was extremely Not quite confident at first I thought for sure that just another regular standard plastic but to my surprise the man said they're made of metal I purchased 13 foot stand it is extremely well built it does exactly what the man said. I use my stand for other things including putting my laser level on it I can't tell you how much I love the stand if you're looking for good stand look no further. Thanks Strobepro Frank P.S. I just wish it had a bag but I knew that going in but love it
