That said, the stands are light and surprisingly stable despite their small footprint (especially once you put some sandbags on the legs). I haven't put all that much weight on these yet (just a Norman LH-2400 strobe head with a 40" PBL soft umbrella), but they seem like they could hold a fair amount so long as you don't fully extend any one segment of the stand. Full extension of a stand segment results in the plastic clamp/coupler flexing easily and, thus, a bit of pole sway.
The air cushion saved my stuff once already. It works just fine with both stands and on all sections.
One of the sections came in with the plastic bracket that attaches it to the next section loose, I just tightened the screw and it was back to normal.
The locking knobs have a plastic head that seems sturdy enough to withstand reasonable abuse. The gears on which the feet hinge are plastic but seem reasonably solid, and both of them (top AND bottom) can be loosened to move them along the stand.
All in all if you want light stands to take with you for a month-long trek in Patagonia this is not the reliability or lightweight you need - for any other activity involving light stands, this is just fine for the price.
While these do not have the quality of a Manfrotto light stand, they also do not carry the hefty Manfrotto price tag.
These stands have plastic clamps and knobs (vs metal), which I expected for the price.
I have small hands and my only complaint is that the knobs are spaced/stacked close together and I prefer more spacing between the knobs.
With that being said, these stands will serve my purpose(s) well and for the money I can't complain.

Nice and sturdy. Hold a good load. Light weight. Some problems with construction, some parts don't fit well or are apt to separate from the pole. Adjustments may help. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Stevarino
Got these stands and one of them was broken. It was very hard to raise or lower the stand. However, the stand that was working seemed to be pretty decent for the price. Read morePublished 8 months ago by josh bryant
