McNally's Right!

McNally talks about "C-stand Complete" in his books on his blog and in person on The FlashBus Tour. I finally had a situation where I felt like I should buy one and all I can say is that McNally is right. This is an important, useful, versatile and awesome stand. I love it and will be looking for another soon.

This is the lighting stand to buy.

By

from Cincinnati, OH  -  Pro Photographer

I own a multitude of standard lighting stands. None of them compare to this Avenger C-Stand. It is rock solid, bends and twists into any position needed, and holds an enormous amount of weight. My 5' octabox hangs like a feather without any counter balance weight needed. The black cuts down on reflections and I have yet to have an issue with the paint scraping or chipping off. The removable turtle style base is a must have. With the legs off this stand fits in my grip case with everything else and isn't a pain to transport. Despite it's hefty price tag, if you're only going to buy one stand, this is the one to buy.

Worth the money

By

from Florida  -  Hobbyist

Heavy enough to hold your light boxes at any angle yet easy to move around. Definitly not a portable light stand to take on location unless for some serious photography. It does fold up quite compactly.

Just what I needed.

By

from Fresno, Ca  -  Photo Enthusiast

I was looking at a lighter weight stand/ boom combo. A sales agent suggested this instead. For my mono-light heads this was the right choice. I'm super happy, and will buy another in the future.

Reasonable value

By

from Tucson, AZ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought two of these. One was perfect, the other must have been partially rinsed when it was sealed in the bag. It literally had a cup of fluid in the bag and was covered with what looks like polishing compound. The steel was completely fine, the surface finish on the aluminum fittings had been attacked by the polishing compound. Very strange. But it was still completely functional

Solid!

By

from Orono, Maine  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Love having a complete c-stand. Solid stand for speedlights with modifiers or my AB1600s. Love being able to fly light in from above. Don't forget your sandbags though. It's rugged but leverage is leverage and it will tip over if not braced.
