The quality and the finish is really good. The extension is also black but the finish does get marked up because of the teeth on the knuckle, which I would expect. If I needed another one I would get this again.
I was amazed at the build quality, fit and finish in addition to discovering unique features and thoughtful engineering. I would have paid more for this item! I certainly will purchase another without hesitation.
This is my first C-Stand. I think I'll need more soon :-)
I was using the older C-Stands and was happy with them - didn’t realize that there could be such a difference. These are incredible! Stronger, sturdier and much more height as well as reach with them! And, the new wheels fit… Not to mention the Strobepro service which is worth buying from alone.
