You are so often, a fountain of useful information, H. I always sit up and pay attention when the likes of your-good-self are posting on gear.

The name of the game indeed does seem to be "infinite adjustability". My thoughts echo your own on "feel".....I was just quite intrigued as to how much feel one actually requires out of a hat stand. I was under the impression that if you put your foot down, the hats went "chink" and that was all that is required. I certainly get the merits of remote stands....their purpose is evident. It's the other "extras" that have sparked my interest. The last time I was in the market for one, rolling glides, cams and adjustable footboards didn't appear to be options. It's all new to me, mate.

To me, functionality is worth the extra dough.
Thanks Ekim, I was hoping to hear from a few posters who own the higher end stuff. Now if I may ask, just what are the type of adjustable features that you find handy and what adjustments have you made to your stand that tailors it to your personal style and sets it apart from the run of the mill variety?
