This lightweight and portable stand can support up to 22lbs (10kg). The large footprint makes it extremely secure to support large softboxes. When folded it is only 39.8” (101cm) yet it can be extended up to 9.5ft (290cm). Dual-leg struts provide extra strength and stability. The Classic Stand also features a 5/8” (17.2mm) baby receiver with a detachable 5/8” baby stud (16mm).
