Durable & Portable Light Stand recommendations for Elinchrom Ranger RX Heads?
5 months ago

Hi,
I'd like to stop carrying stainless steel C-Stands around on location, they're way too heavy (the ranger pack and heads already weigh a ton, not to mention my camera and lenses) and besides my Avenger stand has started to rust after staying in the rain on a shoot last month. Are there any lightstands that don't rust (aluminium?), can hold the weight of an Elinchrom A head on location and yet are light and easy to carry (I'd carry up to two with me)? I know Elinchrom makes some light stands but I wasn't sure which one is sturdy enough?

Thanks gents!

PS: I was thinking maybe a pair of these? http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-elinchrom-tripod-air-lighting-stand-kit/p1525162
