I wished it was air-cushioned. I might not have bought it if I had known beforehand.

I find air cushioning slows me down when I want to retract a stand.
The only benefit is when loosing a section without first gripping it to control the light coming down.

The C 10 is a worthwhile addition to the product line. Very useful height.

I couldn't agree more! In fact, those of my stands which came with air cushioning / pneumatic damping / call it what you may now no longer have that annoying facility. I've stripped them down and removed the 'valves' which control the air movement inside each of the risers. VAST improvement I find. And I have never, ever (in over 50 years) had an accidental slip where the head came crashing down. Some find air-damping good, I find it a positive detriment. YMMV as the saying goes ;)

Other odd bits over the decades, simply to get the job done - not merely to polish and brag about cos I'm too mean to buy the polish!

So... what I'm reading is that if the C10 was air-cushioned, you would not have bought it?
