Re: Best choice for durable preferably cheap stands?
Fair enough. I'll know where I "stand" on the SP stands in a few years, provided they last that long. Maybe a dozen setups and breakdowns and so far, so good.
One thing about my old Tama stands was the weight (which in some ways, is viewed as a good thing). Now granted, the lightweight nature of the SPs may bite me in the ass at some point, but it sure is nice carrying 7 of them in a hardware bag with no problem. And that's with 2 herniated discs!
But that old Tama Stilt stand....holy crap I'd trust using that as a support beam for a house!
