I got this stand because it shipped free. It's an okay stand. Not always the most sturdy so if you work with young children or babies you might need to make sure someone is on standby or you have it re-enforced.(I usually place a heavy object to help hold it down and have mom or dad stand next to it). It has held up my 9 ft rolls of seamless paper just fine with no bending or warping of the bars. One thing to take note of it can sometimes be a pain to get the feet all teh way extended. It was so hard that I didn't even realize they extended more till my 3 time using it. Over all I think it's a great stand to start out with.
