Probably the best stand in the world

The Manfrotto stands are all known for their high quality, and this one is also the most stable and sturdy of all models. I own 7 pieces so far, when closed they stack together for easy storage and transportation. I use them in multiple ways: support for backgrounds, lights, reflectors, light panels, light filters, decoration, etc. The air cushioning has saved me many times from accidents.
