Who needs a model, the stand itself is looking so good.:D The pictures on mathews or avenger web sites are crap in comparison.

Not only do most of the pictures of the Matthews stands not do them justice but many sites are still showing the older models without the orange/rust colored braces and without the recessed wheels.

Personally, I think she's beautiful :)

Comparing your lighstands to Dave Hobby's is like comparing Mercedes Maybach to Toyota Tercel.

Rob, I agree, I never though I'd be impressed by the aesthetics of a stand but the new Matthews stands look great with the orange/rust accents. My stand looks the same as Rob's but I'll get one posted sometime this weekend of my own stand collapsed as well.

Can you please also measure it closed? I want to make sure it can fit in my car easily. I don't trust specs on B&H or mfg. sites any more.

Bobby,

Are you looking at the 020 that Jerel has or the 022 that I have?

Are you still getting the Avenger A5017 or is this instead of that stand?

The one Jerel has as it is a bit lighter. I did order A5017 but might also need another lightstand for boom later.

I haven't used mine on location but if and when I do I bet it'll be awesome.

As long as you're on even ground, there's no doubt that a boomed strobe and modifier flying 6 feet off the axis of the stand and a 15 pound sandbag off the other end is going to much more convenient to move or adjust if the stand is on wheels.

Obviously if you're working on uneven ground then a standard tripod base with a leveling leg is the ticket.

Yeah I'll measure it when I can. I think I might be bringing the setup along tomorrow for a preshoot for a fashion show so excited to put it to use. Fredericks of Hollywood is debuting their swimwear line!

"She", Rob? Do you stick your mannequin head on top and call "her" Gertrude?

Let me first say that although I have nothing personal against the name Gertrude, I would never call 'her' that.

I generically refer to objects of great beauty as female. :cool: :D :cool:

Got my Avenger A5017 (thanks Robert) and wow, very nice. It says 14lbs and I can easily manage it. I am going to use it outside tomorrow for a shoot and will report back.

I can see nicer Mathews stands in my future. Wifey is not going to be happy.
