I'm using these with AB800 and AB400 with a Extra Large Softbox from Paul C Buff, as well as Octobox's, Strip boxes etc, so far they have had no issue what so ever and the weight doesn't seem to be a factor at all. They are pretty heavy duty, yet you can take them on location with the carrying bag, big plus.

Two heavy stands and four pipes that twist and interlock forming a twelve foot background holder. All you need to add is four spring clamps to hold the bacground on.

yes, all he lockdowns are plastic and frankly very lightweight and delicate. If you are looking for a durable, heavy duty lighting stand spend another $100.00 per stand.

Yes, I use this stand for video taping - It's great!! You'll have to get an adaptor piece that will allow you to move/shift the camera to the right angle but nothing else.
