So, anybody have some feedback here on either the Photek or the Promaster LS-CT with Matthew Extension?  For outdoors, I generally have access to another stand that's a lot more stable, but for when travelling to shows on transit where I'm indoors, I want something lighterweight/more compact. 

Interested in real-world feedback with either since I've got a show coming up next month where I'll need a stand.  :)

TIA

I use the promaster w/ matthews extention and it is great for everyday shows.  Sturdy and have been able to run this combo in small bars and a recent Phish Dick's show.  Very happy with the combo FWIW. 

Also breaks down small and easy to carry.

Hey everyone,

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll likely go with the original Photek solution as it just seems a little more stable than using the other stand with the Matthews extension pole (although maybe I'm mistaken here).

Either way, does anybody have a good, reasonably priced lead on a bag for carrying said stand?  Quite often, I'm either lugging the stand from a vehicle or taking public transit to a venue so something I can wear over my shoulder would be ideal.  TIA!

I use a bag that a folding camping chair came in. Zero cost...

Yeah, just look around for a ground score after taping outdoors.  People leave them all over the place.  Zero cost is good.

Just picked one up from B&H. Seems really sturdy and versatile.

Any drawbacks on the Photek you might have seen? TIA.

Not so far, but I'll be using it for a show on Monday and will report back.

I have used mine a few times now and the only drawback is that the top section is a little wobbly when fully extended. I don't ever run super high so that's not an issue for me but if you want to use the full height it may be...
