Umbella adapter question
Dec 20, 2012

I currently use the Manfrotto 026 adapter for my lightstand. I bought a coldshoe with it(http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/743061-REG/Vello_CS_Universal_Accessory_Shoe_Mount.html)

I don't particularly like using that shoe as I feel to get it to where I feel comfortable with it I feel I have to tighten it more than I want to.  If I don't I feel that I risk it falling off.  It actually happened once as I was testing to see how stable it was. My question is would it be ok to use the supplied flash stand instead of the cold shoe?  The stand has the threads and would fit right in the stand and the flash just locks in place so I don't have to worry about how tight to put it.  I'm not sure if the stand was meant for use in all those different angles so I wanted to make sure.
