It's light enough at under 12 pounds, the price tag makes me gun shy. I'm trying to stay under $150. I think the Pacific 820 and the C20 are at a local store so I'm going to try and check those out this weekend.
That’s been my experience with the 5000, as well. The fixed, solid baseplate makes a big difference.I've used a 2 leg DW5000 for 15+ years and have zero complaints. Never had an issue with it not being stable. If the legs and footboard are setup properly it should be rock solid
I also have a 2-leg Speed Cobra. The fancy one.I use a two leg Speed Cobra. It took a long time to find something that wouldn't sneak away from me. It's very nice. The only problem I have with two leg stands is you can't pull it back with the top of your foot.
