Re: Flat leg stands vs regular pros and cons?
Here's the real trade-off: stability. It's not even so much the weight because the newer flat-based stands weigh as much as my Yamaha 600-series stands and Tama's single-braced StageMaster stands. I've owned both types and I trust tripod-based stands more. Flat-based stands are very top heavy and in my case, were easy to knock over.
