I ordered two of these light-stands for studio lighting. One of the lightstands works very well. The other one does not work as a air cushion at all(drops like a rock). I tested them with my Nikon SB 600 Speedlight mounted on them. The one that does not work as an air cushion drops just like a normal(non-air-cushion)lightstand. The other stand works very well, it retract very slowly like a hydraulic dampener. I was very pleased with it. That said: They are made with metal and high-impact plastic. The one that works well is definitely worth the price the other one is not. If you do not need an air cushion stand and want a reasonably well-made light stand that is very stable(big foot print) then the stand might be worth the money.
This is a light-weight, light-duty stand. The air cushined 2 - section stand only buffer their own weight, not with any attachments, like lights! However, it is pretty sturdy, opens and closes easily. The value is equal to the price.
Sturdy and well built. This stand takes up good realestate to make sure my strobe is safely in the air.
