Gaff tape cures a multitude of sins.

I gaff down my spindly carbon fiber stand for my DPAs, but when using the 1004BAC at full height, especially with the 099b as a boom arm, I feel like a weight is mandatory.  Some of the places I record have my stand sitting on a carpeted area, and gaff tape isn't good for holding down much more than cables there.

I think context is important here.  I get the impression from your other posts that you're typically not recording in a rock concert type of setting with all the venue/security issues that often come with it.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

For the types of shows I go to where open taping is allowed (rock/jamband stuff), even getting a stand in can be a hassle.  Trying to explain to security why I'd need to bring in some big weight would only make things more difficult, IMO.  It looks like that 1004BAC goes up to 12 feet high.  For rock/jamband stuff, I'd be skeptical of the need to go higher than that so going to measures beyond gaffer tape to secure it shouldn't (again, IMO) be an issue.

Collapsible Nalgene 96oz canteen can be folded up and stashed in a bag. Then filled at the water fountain for weight.

Yeah, I'm entirely classical / acoustic, and my stand is always in full view of the audience.  12 feet up is typical, if my stand is set in the pit and the performance is on the stage.  Sometimes I need to go higher and / or boom out, hence the 099b (and massive 124 boom clamp).  All of my mics and bars are very light, but those other things are not.  I really need the 10 lb weight there.
