When your shopping for light stands look no further than the IKAN HD-STND-V2. With air cushioned risers and a max adjustable height of well over 7 feet, you can use these on location or in the studio. The 3 section air cushioned risers go a long way in protecting your expensive lights when you accidentally loosen a knob. The air-shock will soften the fall of your light, minimizing or even eliminating any damage. A wide footprint insures that your setup is stable and doesn't fall over. It supports 8lbs of weight.
