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 got these to hold my Alien Bee 800 units(2)and Paul C. Buff P.L.M(2)51" with front diffusers attached which isn't super heavy nor super light.My previous light stands felt flimsy with that set up and were admittedly cheap !
I know ANY loaded light stand CAN AND WILL topple over when it is THE most in-opportune time.I just wanted something with a bit more load capacity and stability.
SO...... without spending a small fortune I found these.
As far as I know (which isn't very far!HA!) light stands have not changed in design in decades, just what they are made of and addition of the air cushion(which these are)Etc..BUT these are different !
The lower support beams are attached off axis to the main support which allows them to fold flat as opposed to circular(like an inverted umbrella).This in turn with a nifty docking are allow these stands to attach together which if you have 2 or more of these is a really nice feature for transport !I have not seen this feature before but I like it all ready !
The footprint of the legs ARE larger and a bit closer to the ground(compared with my cheapies)which lends a bit more to the stability(and of course tripping hazard)of the stands.A weight bag of course further solidifies them.
These are made of a new materiel patented by Manfrotto which is another cool thing about these making them extremely strong yet lighter than comparably stands at this weight capacity.They are almost TOOOO light though !
Side note:They look pretty slick as well!
Why no 5 star you ask? Well, I guess it comes down to my only gripe so far. They DO still bend when extended and loaded with the aforementioned set up.Did't particularly like that all things considered. I would LOVE it if they had a studio(more heavy)version AND a location(less heavy)version,but I digress and that is just my stupid opinion.
BOTTOM LINE: For light and medium(up to 15lbs or so)set ups.ABSOLUTELY!!!!!
Heavier set ups...Get different stands ! You all ready knew that though didn't you?
Anyhoozles ,thanks for reading,If this review helped you then click the button and if you have questions type me.
The last straw is now a knob has completely stripped off (like you can rotate it 360 inside of the hole it used to be anchored to). This makes the stand unusable. Out of the many stands I've had over 10 years of shooting (PCB, Westcott, Manfrotto, etc.), I've never had so many problems with one stand before. I'm worried about Manfrotto's newer products' reliability (I have old stuff that keeps on putting up with abuse). I've had similar QC issues with the photo/video head that switches back and forth (MH055M8-Q5).
