For our Heavy Duty lightstand we’ve chosen the Manfrotto 1005BAC. At 4.5 pounds and 3.27 feet collapsed, it’s a bit bigger than our 6.5-foot stand. But if you need to put a heavy light with softbox up high, look no further. The weight goes to a fully air-cushioned stand that’s a bit higher than its 9.5-foot announced height, and it can support a 20-pound unit (as long as it’s reasonably balanced on the head). When shipping and using multiple units, this lightstand has the Manfrotto “stacker” feature, which is several collapsed stands attached together that can then carry or ship as one unit. Its reversible 3/8" to 1/4" threaded stud allows the flexibility to mount pretty much any light out there.
