I have a pair of Einsteins and currently one of the Cheetah century boom stands (which is tremendous for the price). I bought the boom to use for my key light, but I was thinking about something shorter for the kicker. Avenger makes a 30" (max 7ft) and a 40" (max 9ft) straight century stand, which would you prefer?

I've not worked with multiple lights before and the minimum height of the Cheetah C-Stand is just over 5ft.

Why not get another cheetah stand but then get some grip hardware to put light lower than stand would go. Something like this:

Technically I could get another Cheetah boom C-Stand and just mount the Einstein upside down on the boom to make it really low; but I wasn't comfortable hanging the light with a softbox on the stand like that.

Thanks for the link! That's a pretty handy little adapter for sure!
