Buy 'em, you'll Love 'em!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PBL LIGHT STANDS 10 FOOT, PRO HEAVY DUTY SPRING CUSHIONED, ALL METAL LOCKING COLLARS, SET OF 2 WITH CARRY BAGS BLACK FINISH by PBL (Electronics)
These are excellent lightstands! They really are heavy duty and open and close in a pinch! They adjust quickly and I have no worries with my expensive speedlights riding up on top of these lightstands or my shadow boxes. They are phenomenal lightstands! If they could be better, I don't know how! The carrying bags are a great plus too! With the sandbags, even up at the 10' hieght, I'm comfortable with my gear attached to them!
You won't go wrong buying these lightstands and they are an excellent price to boot!
You'll love them!
**UPDATE** Jan 2013 - I still love these stands! They work great and haven't failed me yet! One quick note or suggestion, When you get them, there is a little nut on each knob, take the nut off, add a tad of "locktite" to the threads and screw them back down. Make sure they are only snug enough to get a nice grip on the poles and then faggettaboutit! You won't look back! If you don't add the locktite, every once in a while, one of them will loosen up just a little bit and allow the center pole to slowly slide back down. You can tighten them up real quick with a pair of needle nose pliers, but if you just add that little pinch of locktite, they never loosen up anymore! Oh by the way, I bought two more sets of them since the original purchase! Love them!! You'll love them too!
