Bargain of the Century- How can you complain
on September 22, 2015
Quite decent light stands for the price. I am not sure the listing mentions that these stands are actually spring loaded but they are and so for 25-30 bucks each that is not a bad thing. These are light weight stands but feel that they have some longevity to them. When you spread them out they have a very good feel of stability. All the connection points are metallic of some kind. Only the knob for locking the legs is plastic. Now the knobs for the two sections are fully metallic and the handy thing is that they loosen completed by 90 degree turn and then when you want to tighten it is another 90 degree turn. These are firm and almost a detent feel of a turn. .. not loose and sloppy. Quite good. The connection point to the top is your standard 1/4 20 thread. Don't think it flips around to reveal another thread section. All in all I would say these are the bargain of the century. I think you are going to pay double just for an air cushion model. The springs will more than suffice and certainly better to have TWO stands than ONE. The plastic bag smells of cheap china plastic but I am sure it will be okay for a couple years. I think this kind of bag will dry up and crack over time but new it seems pretty decent. How can you complain? I see no flaws to these stands whatsoever.
