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
A great stand for a great price. No question. I wouldn't recommend mounting heavy lights above 10 feet on it, but two together can handle a heavy duty crossbar with lights on it close to full extension; and of course it's perfect for tall backdrops.
