Pretty lightweight, but that's why I got it, so it's easy to lug around. The rubber straps at the top had to be removed, having no apparent use or compatibility with with my Yamaha CP33 or my Nord Stage 3 Compact. With those removed, it functions like a normal stand. The release lever is a little suspiciously easy to release, so I use velcro straps to keep it clenched tight while in use. I docked one star for those two design eccentricities, otherwise it functions like a nice, cheap stand as advertised/priced.
