This is a High Quality, affordable, and full function Carbon Fiber Offhand stand. Like all of the products we sell, we stand behind the the quality.
If you are a traveler and want to keep your gear ligh, this stand weighs in at a mere 3 pounds 12 oz(with case and trays). One of the lightest in the industry.
Keep in mind, this a professional and light stand that may not be the right stand for people starting out and needing more support. If you are just starting out and prone to bumping and banging (like my kids are sometimes), you might want to try another great stand that is a bit heavier like our TEC-HRO Stand X.
