Very decent light stands,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pro PBL Heavy Duty 8ft Light Stands, Air Cushioned Set of 2 Photographic Lighting (Camera)
At this price they are perfect.
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.
