I'm very used to putting my ad600 on C-Stands, Monopods, and I'm very familiar with how heavy it can be and the associated counterweights. But since buying this, my assistant can put the pack on her shoulders and easily move the light source around on the monopod, in studio the light pack is the counterweight, making outdoor shoots faster, and studio shoots safer. Great product, a must-have for any ad600 owner.
I attach the strobe on the base of the light stand with a super clamp. Less top heavy for extra stability especially for location shoots. I have one for each strobe; not just for the boom stand. Better than sandbags; plus it’s easier to access the strobe.
