That inexpensive PhotoSEL stand I just posted about has a removable top stud.  This is the only stand I have with that feature.  The included stud can be flipped for either a 1/4"-20 or 5/8" thread.  I was slightly concerned the stud clamping mechanism would interfere with my odd mounting method, but it worked out fine.

That is a pretty unusual feature.  I've only seen that before in the super-tall (and super-expensive) Manfrotto stands meant for high camera angles.

First couple times put the pole up, I instinctively loosened the stud-clamp as it looks just like the others on the telescopic sections.  That was correctly ingrained by the third upping.  The air-cushioning on this thing is a bit overboard, but I expect that to relax a bit with more use.

Another inexpensive option if you are only looking to go 10 1/2' max is Karamy.  I don't own the stand myself, still have my Manfrotto that's 20 years old for height.   But when I was looking for an extension I could use with the superclamp, I stumbled across them.  Checked out reviews and videos online of reviews and they seem pretty solid lighting stands with some nice little features.  They have a reversible spigot with 1/4" and 3/8" threads and it can be positioned in three different directions and locked it.  This is a great feature for the extension I got (which has a fixed 1/4" threaded end on the other end).  The air-cushioned stand also comes with a spike that can be screwed into the bottom for grass/sand, built in hooks to attach carbiners for sandbags or whatever you want to hang, and the pole can also be removed from the tripod base and be used as a boom.   The 126" (10.5') stand is only $43, so might be work checking out.

FYI, I'm not affiliated with them at all.
