Umbrella swivel types and stand reviews...

I  looked at the Strobist website ( I am new to flash photography). They suggest to get a the light stand and a swivel.

I am looking in e-bay and for the swivel I found there are different types B, C, D, E and not sure what else. I found an explanation saying that C is more compact and lightweight than B and have less screws.. so it sounds much better. But then what about the other types?Which one should I buy. I found many in ebay like this one: at around $7.

Also for the stand. I found this one but not sure if this is good quality or not:


- compact

- light

My concern is : "Max Weight = 3Kg" is this acceptable?

Thanks for your feedback
