Re: Seamless paper background stands, C-stand advice needed.

This stand also has a small footprint, nearly a foot smaller than the manfrotto that my kit came with and very close to the c-stand footprint.

Because there is no industry standard for measuring footprint, I avoid comparing published figures between brands. The Manfrotto looks equal to the Matthews, or even smaller. Beefy Baby is a Hollywood staple and, in my experience, handles the Manfrotto crossbar in my studio at 8.5' elevation with aplomb:

I own stands with much larger footprint but those would be gross overkill for a supporting a b/d. If you have some target footprint in mind, I can recommend a qualifying light stand.
