Good build quality, very versatileWas in the market for a couple light stands and was going to buy the version 1 below this, the 6.5' but then saw these on sale so decided to upgrade.
Solidly built and seem like they'll take a bit of a beating. First thing I like about them is that when closed, the bottom surface is wide enough that it will stand on its own.
Quite versatile as well. The brass spigot is removable and can be placed vertically, or horizontally. It also has 1/4-20 threads on one end and 3/8 threads on the other so it can be used with a variety of accessories.
Time will tell how it stands up, but I expect it'll be fine. Is it made for heavy duty slugging and can it withstand serious abuse? No, but that's not what it's intended for.
