A boom stand is a great addition to any studio set up. The boom allows you to place a light directly over your subject matter for great separation and light control. An included sandbag gives a perfect counterbalance for safety and smooth movement. Perfect for a hair light or product photography, you will wonder what you ever did without one.

9/4/2013 - I lowered my review to 1 star due to the pathetic customer service. The stand is useless without the locking lever for the boom. I emailed them and generated a ticket. Several days later I got a response that said the ticket had been resolved by giving me a phone number to call. I called this number and they said I had to deal with Amazon. Well Amazon will just refund my money (at least they have good customer service) or send me another unit which will probably also be missing parts. I won't buy any other Manfrotto products again unless I can see them in person. Oh yes and just FYI the spigot on this had dings in it where it had been tightened and loosened which tells me that this stand had probably been returned before. Wouldn't have bothered me if it came with all the parts.
One last word of advice if you have been unfortunate to get a stand missing the boom nut. I bought a 5/16" bolt with a matching T-nut for around $5.00 at Ace hardware. Works like a charm. Easier than sending the boom stand back.
9-12-13 - Last update, OK I moved the review back to 3 stars. I sent a nasty email to them again and the person answering said "Why didn't they just ship you the part?" Good question. Anyway he said he would personally take care of it and today I got the part. Soooo.... If you get one of these missing parts be persistent. I guess they aren't all informed about customer service. I'm now happy but wish I hadn't had to go through all this to begin with. I would have given this 4 or 5 stars if I hadn't got it defective.
The stand itself is OK. Yes, a little flimsy and you will certainly need sandbags, but it's a lot nicer to work with than a full C-stand and boom arm. For my Profoto B2 head and a lightweight modifier, it's great. The sandbag that comes with this has a hook on it and you will need your own hook or carabiner or something--the hole for the sandbag is flush with the pole and disappears into the stand's lower part. I probably would have kept the damn thing if the sandbag itself weren't so cheap. No inner liner means sand will inevitably leak. I'd recommend using pea gravel instead. Or better, buy the no-sandbag version even if you don't care about the money. Maybe Manfrotto will get the message. I love their stands--this is my 7th, I think--but I don't like being jerked around on the details.
I would highly recommend this for light duty use, but I'm not sure it would hold up to heavy mono-lights in a studio. I would definitely look elsewhere for any heavier lighting combos. I imagine this boom will last me for many years to come from it's build quality though! I did opt for iron weights instead of sand for various reasons including wear. If you're into portability there are some great water bladder weight options as well!
note: I noticed some reviewers mentioned the adjustment handle was missing from the boom, mine did arrive with this item just fine, and everything was in the package needed for setup.
