About Flashpoint

The Flashpoint FPLS9 stand is your ultimate light support tool. Durable and versatile, carefully crafted from the finest lightweight yet sturdy materials, this stand is composed of all the features you need.
A reversible 1/4" or 3/8" screw on a 5/8" stud, perpendicular mounting, large, easy to turn knobs, variable tension, sturdy legs, rubber tipped feet, and lightweight balance and stability all combine to make this your perfect lightstand.

A Reversible 1/4" or 3/8" Screw on a 5/8" Stud means that you can mount virtually any light, modifier, speedlight, or bracket to this stand
Perpendicular Mounting allows you to mount a light sideways off the stand, or to mount a speedlight sideways to get the maximum impact for vertical subjects
Large, Easy to Turn Knobs prevent you from pinching your fingers, give you a better grip, and allow you to lever more torque to tighten and loosen the stand sections, making it easier to raise, lower, and lock the stand
Variable Tension allows you to loosen or tighten the sections incrementally, to safely raise and lower each section
Sturdy Legs made of tubular aircraft grade aluminum will support a maximum load while keeping weight low, and have the perfect footprint to height ratio.
Rubber Tipped Feet prevent sliding and shifting, as well as protecting expensive flooring and dampening vibrations
Lightweight Balance and Stability using high quality but lightweight materials ensures that transporting these rugged stands will not be a problem, and they will support the maximum possible weight with the minimum possible strain to your back.

Tightening Knob Piece SNAPPED In Two

As you can see in the photos, the piece that tightens to hold the sections of the stand together snapped in two! I have used this once or twice with only a speedlite attached. Tonight I added a small (22") umbrella and that seemed to over do it. It now moves freely up and down and in circles, even when I have it tight. I am by no means strong enough to be able to split a piece of "quality" equipment in half. I do not recommend this stand, and would steer clear of Flashpoint products if you ca...
