Default What is the best cymbal boom stand for a heavy ride?

I have a paragon ride 22" and it recently snapped my boom stand arm in half.
This is cause i have it jazz style, hovering just over my bass drum.
Paragon rides are EXTRA heavy.
The boom arm had to be quite far out because the size of my bass drum (26")
So i am now looking for a replacement but i get the feeling no normal boom stand is gonna hold up the stupidly heavy ride cymbal i posses :L

Can anyone recommend a boom stand that will be able to hold up my cymbal and not bend and break?

All of the major hardware companies will make a boom that will easily hold a 22" ride. Pearl, DW, Tama, Gibraltar, Yamaha et al will all have something that will hold up. I'm really only familiar with Pearl hardware so can recommend anything from the 900 Series hardware and upwards, but the other brands will all offer a boom that will work.

A DW 9000 series boom would easily be able to handle that 8 pound ride, even outstretched. I know this for a fact. Just make sure that one of its legs is placed in the same direction or under the cymbal for greater balance. The new Ludwig Atlas pro stands should also be able to handle it, but I've never tried it. The big thing to take into account here is the reach that you evidently need on the boom arm so the stand has to be heavy enough to retain the balance.

Another way of doing this would be with a slightly lighter stand and then using a sand bag to weight the base.

For my money, the pearl bc2000 is the Cadillac of cymbal stands.

Excuse my post look. 90% chance I'm typing on a phone. My focus is the message not grammar.
