I actually use this one more than most now that I have it. Very handy to have around and very easy to move. Will definitely be getting more eventually.
Pretty cool design. It is quite heavy compared to my other stands, but the self-opening feature is very nice. All metal. Smooth operation. Handy bags. Two-angle spigot. Smaller footprint too, which is nice for smaller spaces, but you have to watch when using with a boom.
Having a stand that is easy to move and set up makes all the difference when you are busy. Not having to fumble and adjust things when you are constantly moving is great!
This stand is advertised as a compact, sturdy, and speedy light stand that is easily moved around set for a quick workflow. That is exactly what this is, and kudos to Strobepro for it. I only have two hangups about this product which are both particularly minor. The legs on this stand are hollow, and capped with rounded, ridged inserts acting as feet. Sadly, not all of these feet are firmly in place, and one had fallen out as soon as it was removed from the package. I pinched the leg a bit with some pliers hoping to keep the foot in place, but I've since already lost it at my last shoot. The other issue is that the footprint of these stands, while compact and fast in their mechanical makeup, is quite small. I do wish that I could extend them a bit further, but as it seems with this design, that isn't possible. Nevertheless, it is still quite sturdy/ I would just be cautious, naturally, not to put anything too top-heavy on it.
