The lightweight construction and compact-size of these stands make them a practical tool for your lighting support needs. With a patented Quick Stack System (QSS) you can easily stack the stands together with their built in connectors for portable transport and storage. The adapto collars and spider casting Material is crucial to provide high performance and light weight. Adapto is the new material specifically developed by Manfrotto for both collars and spider castings is comparable to aluminum in strength, but is 50% lighter and has a superb resistance to extreme temperatures and will not corrode or oxidize. Additionally, Adapto is an excellent vibration absorption material. the new Adapto collars are made from a single locking component, ensuring better performance and easier maintenance. A stronger and more ergonomic handle makes it easier to secure stands into the operating position. A 3/8’’ screw top female to 1/4” adapter male (015), allows you to connect additional accessories. A new bi-injection casting provides the photographer with a better ergonomic grip.

I called Amazon customer service, and they immediately placed a replacement order on my behalf. I also made a comment on the packaging in the appropriate place on the website.
I received the replacement order today, and was dismayed to find this box is also open on one end. And sure enough, the same part is missing from this stand also.
I have just got off the phone with customer service, and another replacement is on its way, and I should see it by Thursday. I begged her to make a note of the specific packing issues, and to request that both ends of the box be taped securely AFTER they inspect the stand to be sure the part is in place.
I know that some will not think my review is appropriate. I am sorry for that. But after 2 go arounds, I have to get their attention on this matter! This is becoming very frustrating for me.
I still gave it 5 stars, because that is what the product itself deserves.
All-in-all, a great stand for travel. I own three and will most likely own more.
Once I opened the box and set it up, it was all over for me. I'm so disgusted with those old stands that I'm throwing them out, and ordering two more of these stands immediately. Even though those old stands went with equally old S-V fixtures, I'm investing in the stands for at least the safety factor, if nothing else. I'll use those old fixtures for something, but at least I won't be facing a lawsuit because of those old stands.
This is my first Manfrotto product (I had considered tripods, but went for the Vinten Vision Blue instead), and I'm very pleased with the prospect of having no worries about light stands. My advice is, don't skimp on the light stands. Even if you don't kill someone by it falling over, at least you'll be protecting your fixture, and looking like the professional you'll want to become.
I'm very glad I heeded the advice given in the reviews concerning wiggly jiggly lighter weight stands, including a $50 Manfrotto model, and purchased this one instead. Life's too short to put expensive lighting gear atop jiggly wiggly things.
Are there sturdier light stands? Of course. This one, however, gives one confidence something really dramatic must happen before your light tips over.
The pin atop the stand is crimped in place. I don't think this matters to anyone, but I've read a few comments here and there that this pin is removable. It isn't on my example. My studio flash sits atop this stand just fine and secures well.
The pin comes with a, seemingly well made, 3/8" to 1/4" reducer just the right size to lose instantly unless you find a way to manage little gadgets in your work flow. My very first task for this stand is to hold a speedlight with one of those shoe mounts that accepts 1/4" so this is a welcome feature.
A good stand for a good price.
I just got this and a Bogen - Manfrotto Boom Stand 420 (Black Anodized), 3-Section Stand Convertible to Double Extension Boom and Stand, w/Sand Bag (#3397B) together, and am on Cloud Nine. These especially have a very wide base compared to others, including the Boom 420, due to the flat-stacking design of the stand. I will not be worrying about these stands falling over.
