Re: Which Stands to buy?

. . . 'is that if I'm using it up top it's going to cast a shadow' . . .

.. now you are using the pop-up as a scrim/diffuser. (And the shadow on the diffusion material may not matter). In that configuration, they act even more as a sail.

There are options to cope with that, using very heavy, tall 'Overhead' stands, maybe with wire stays etc - but it becomes a real production.

If you just need to scrim a small area, then a knowledgeable assistant with a pole and a smaller pop-up with a threaded handle can work.
