Great stand

Just received my second one of these stands. I do not use these every day, but they are very sturdy, easy to set up and I am sure will last me for years; but I take real good care of my equipment. I use them with Bees and boxes, if I were using them every day, I might buy heavier ones. But they are tough! And fit my needs!!!

Good product for the price

As indicated above, the metal iself does not seem to be of the strongest. I have three of these. The top that holds the stud seems to be a little wobbly on one of them. Not sure I´d feel comfortable leaving a head and a beauty dish mounted overnight. But all in all a good product, considering the price. Huge footprint and pretty stable.

Bag information


from Omaha, NE  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have bought four of these stands so far, I am using them for my home studio of 4 Einsteins. I was looking for a bag to hold those. I wrote to Lightware asking whether their 50 inch Light stand sack (C6150) will hold those 4 stands. I am pasting their response, it may be useful for you. "Yes, they will fit. This is a good bag for just carrying stands around in the back of your car. There is no padding in this case, just so you know. Should you want a more protective case, we have a 50" Flip Lid they would fit into|Stands|Sacks&Cat_ID=9 or even our Cargo 52 can handle these. You can also fit a good sized tripod plus the stands in the Cargo 52 plus other location necessities like gaffer's tape, clamps, gels, cords and cables etc.. There is a 1/2" closed cell foam in these which gives suitable protection for stands.|Stands|Sacks&Cat_ID=9 Or if you want a case that has wheels, there is the RC1048|Stands|Sacks&Cat_ID=9 If your needs are simple, then the C6150 is a great bag to carry your stands and they will fit."


Inexpensive Light Stand is Tall & Strong


from Lis Angeles  -  Professional Videographer

This light stand is really a lot more solid and functional than I expected for the price.


Great stand


from Triangle, NC  -  Hobbyist

I use it indoor and outdoor, the legs and extension poles move smoothly into position. The available 90 deg position for the screw stub comes handy sometimes. I have 3 other stands, different models, but this is the one I tend to pull 1-st.


Very good value


from MA

For the money I doubt it gets better. Nicely air cushioned, easily holds large monolight with 30x60" softbox. Not the most heavy duty when fully extended, and like many light stands it arrives with some oil on the sections, but it's a good, steady, tall stand for most uses.


Great stand for the price


from New Hampshire  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is the third Savage 13' Heavy Duty AC stand that I have purchased. They are great if you don't overload them and take care of your equipment. Great product for the cost.


Great Light Stand..........


from Western Pennsylvania  -  Pro Photographer

Great product for the price. Use it constantly out shooting weddings for my off camera light with my wireless triggers.


best light stand i found for this price


from Portland, Oregon  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is the best stand I have ever purchased in this price range! I have tried other brands $50 dollar light stands and keep kicking myself for not just going with another one of these. I have 2 other brand lightstands to return and will be purchasing more of these wonderful stands !




from KC, MO  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I'd buy another one. Actually...I bought 10!


Love this stand!


from Fort Mill, SC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

These stands are not what you would consider "professional grade," however, they are sturdy enough for everyday use in my portrait and wedding photography. I carry two of them in a Flashpoint 46" Tripod case. I would not consider them to be heavy for their size. Neither would I consider the plastic sleeves to be problematic, unless you are the type that throws your equipment around, and use brute strength to tighten. For the price, you really can't beat the value.


Good Bargin


from Fredericktown, MO  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I love the air cushion. I bought it for my small studio. Built well for the price.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
VERNON N  Good value, air-cushioned, tall.
M K  What is the tube diameter?
JACOB M  Main column is 35mm (1.37 inches) boom is 16mm (.62 inches)
tc W  Thanks to all for the responses to my previous load rating question. My reason for the query (which I neglected to mention) was the fact that I intend to use this stand in conjunction with a boom arm for overhead lighting. I will be using a 5-6lb light head with a softbox, the boom arm, and about a 10-15lb counterweight; that's roughly 25lb max. I won't need to extend the stand to its full 13' limit, however, it will probably endure frequent repositioning with this weight. Has anyone used this Savage stand in a similar type set up? Again, much thanks...
DANIEL T  First, I have to say this is a really well built and sturdy stand for the money. They are workhorses. I've used this stand with 20 to 25 pound loads. If each section is not fully extended, it will hold a heavy load just fine. However, if you extend all sections all the way up to the full height, heavy loads will cause the stand to start to "sway" or curve. I've not had any stands fall over or collapse. But, they do get a bit unsteady with heavy loads at taller heights.
