THE PRODUCT: This is an adequate light stand that actually compares to the Cowboy Studio model (of which I own 2). The tubing is slightly larger in diameter but of the same thin aluminum. (guess this is to keep the weight down) I think I expected much higher quality from Wescott. After all Cowboy Studios is the wal mart of the photo supply companes! None the less, it is functional and slightly over priced. The product should get 3 stars as well.
I'm not even sure what happened, but when collapsing or expanding, something went wrong internally and it is a feat of strength to perform this basic function that light stands are designed for.
I bought 3 Ravelli ALS 10' stands and I LOVE them. They are more expensive, but they work, and they work well.
I may have gotten a bad egg, but it happened several months after I bought it and there it wasn't dropped or crushed, so I'm not sure what happened.
On unpacking this product, the first thing I discovered was that the 'shock mount' springs were missing; more than reason enough to return it...which I did...but hardly reason enough to write a review! Of much greater import here is just how poorly made this stand really is. I guess when Westcott labeled this a 'medium weight' stand, they meant it might support both a Sunpak shoe-mount flash AND a Lumiquest pocket bounce attachment. That is, as long as there isn't much of a breeze! You certainly won't be mounting Alien Bee studio strobes to this thing...well, at least not more than once!
So forget this toy! For another $20 you can get the venerable Photoflex LS-2214*, which is a vastly superior product. I've had a couple of them for over 20 years, which I used with heavy White Lightning studio monolights, both indoors and out. And after all this time, they're both still like new, so I'm buying a couple more. To me, "peace of mind" and confidence in a proven product are worth a few bucks more; don't you agree?

It is real tall, light, and seems pretty sturdy. I have an umbrella and a slave flash mounted on it. I guess those aren't real heavy items, but it's definitely flexible and solid enough for my needs and then some. If you put studio flashes or heavier equipment on it, it might not be as suitable.
If you loosen it and let it come down fast, it slows down before hitting ht ebottom. That's the air cusion feature. It's kind of neat, though I don't recommend letting the pole drop willy-nilly that way.
Anyway, this is a good stand. I'd buy it again and I definitely recommend it. No complaints.
I use one to support my 42" umbrella, another for my 5 in 1 reflector and another for my 580EX II speedlite. Three stands along with a Manfrotto RH353 reflector holder fit into my Hensel bag.
The stands two adjustable aluminum extensions are air-cushioned, fully adjustable to desired height. The saddle and collars are high impact plastic all other parts are light aluminum. The top extension has a gimbal with a std 3/8" male tripod connector with a plastic cover when not used. The web picture is accurate.
Great product! Great buy.
Granted these are not top-of-the-line studio stands but then they only cost $24. They're are cheap enough that I consider them disposable even though I've yet to break one. When you figure that pro-grade stands cost almost $600 each, you'd have to go through a LOT of these little guys before you got anywhere near that number.
