Stand for this lighting setup

I'm intrigued by the idea of making a clamshell-type setup like this

to yield images like this

(both are screenshots from https://youtu.be/RN8CO9BTHAM )

I see that Adorama currently has a sale on its Flashlight house brand "10' C Stand on Turtle Base Kit, 40" Grip Arm & Two 3" Gobo Heads" for $99.95, down from $130. A couple of questions:

(1) Would this C-stand be sufficient to handle the weight of an Einstein light as shown in the screenshot?

(2) B&H's house brand C-stand sells for $155 and has extremely similar specs. Does anyone know if there's any particular reason to choose it over the Adorama version?

(3) If these C-stands wouldn't be the best choice, what would be?
