I couldn't decide between the Pro PBL Heavy Duty 10' Light Stands, Air Cushioned, Set of 2 With Velcro Ties, Steve Kaeser Photographic Lighting & Accessories and the Impact Air-Cushioned Heavy Duty Light Stand - Black, 9.5' (2.9m) so I ordered both. The Impact stands arrived first and I took them out of the box. The first thing I noticed was the brushed aluminum finish, the second thing I noticed was the plastic locking collars. The plastic concerned me, but the action raising and lowering the stands was smooth and the air cushion worked well even when supporting weight.

Soon the Pro PBL Heavy Duty 10' stands arrived. I took them out of the box. The first thing I noticed was the gloss black paint on the aluminum. The second thing was the metal locking collars. I put these stands through the motions and was happy with the action of all joints and extending sections. The fatal flaw was noticed when I extended the upper section and tried to lower it while supporting weight. The section stopped completely and would not lower. Only after removing the weight and wiggling the top section was I able to retract it. I took the stand apart to find the problem. The rubber gasket is too soft and the air pressure forces it out against the walls of the tube binding it and preventing movement. With the weight removed, this doesn't happen, but the point of an air cushioned light stand is that you can smoothly and safely lower the weight. This is a critical design flaw and effects the basic function of the light stand.

Side by side the products are very similar.

I purchased these after reviewing about 40 lightstands and reading the reviews. Get these ones.Built solid thick and strong. They hold my Bees and my sofboxes 30x40 no problem, even when I throw on my 70" Octobox, they don't teeter. The only down side is that they m appear tall when closed. But I have a smaller car and they fit in my trunk no problem, I also never close them down, I always use them. In short Get these, great product, and Impact also sells the casters to put on the bottom for easy maneuvering.

Update: 2015 still working great! I use these stands about 1-2 times a week, still work great!

I did a fair amount of homework before I decided on this purchase. The other reviewers won me over and my new light stand arrived just days after I ordered it.
It is indeed, heavy-duty, strong and sturdy. I have no problems raising/lowering and it is more than adequate to faithfully hold my lighting equipment. In short,
this is a surprisingly wonderful addition to my gear, especially for the price. I am well pleased.

This stand makes me smile when I reach for it... it is not too heavy yet is air cushioned and it does work... nice easy to use locking nobs, legs can be adjusted to the width you may like or need (wider or narrower), I did not check height with a tape measure but it does get you that 45 you want over your client -- even if they are 6' tall.
solid top pin -- you will need a bracket to mount onto that pin so go ahead and order one for this stand as you will not be sending it back...
weight, heaver than others but you will be so glad and at ease putting a strobe on this stand... no bending ...
Okay, update --- the height is 9' 5'' but you will have a base size of about 38'' between two legs and 32'' between the last leg. This measurement was done by lying the stand on the floor and then measuring from wall (it will be a tweak longer as it was on angle from center point (maybe one inch longer)...
Okay, so now I put my 24" x 36" softbox on it and extended to it's full length and it stayed straight and then I loosened bottom screw and it drop down very smooth and then the next screw to lower top extension and again lowered smooth and no slamming.
Please, see my photo I added to images with the extended softbox installed.
You can see the softbox is mounted on top and this makes it above the 9'5" height... normally, I do not write such a long review with photos but it took me sometime to find a reasonable priced stand that works!
Finally, take a look at my attached video for how it works and looks... here is a link that will direct you back here also so I am not trying to take any sales... I am just a photographer who understands the need to share some good reviews now and then. [...

bought 3 of these at once. After couple months of light use all of the are functional more or less. Joints turned loose , air cushion fails on two of them. They will do the job but don`t expect to last years. What you pay is what you get. My old trusty PCB 9ft turns up 4 years of heavy use and maintains all the specs. I would not buy this again.

Great stand - I bought this to use for off-camera flash. It looks big and sturdy right out of the box. Sets up easily. This will last me a long time!
