Hi,

That boom is Aluminum and of 25 mm diameter. So, as you suggest, is intended for Speedlites or an Ad 200 or similar coupled with a lightweight modifier.

That means that the stand is not too critical provided the boom is balanced properly.

Although your (?intended) boom comes with a (all Alu) 'Gag' type swivel, there are Grip-heads that accommodate 25mm boom tubes. https://vimeo.com/96062049 The latter would only fit a stand's top fitting (not the top riser) making it preferable that the top fitting was a fully welded-in Baby pin rather than the more usual (shorter) stud. (Both are 5/8th in D). Either type, Gag or Grip-head can be made to work well - it's largely just personal preference.

I've raised more questions ... but I hope it helps with your thinking through.

(Although I'm off-site for my Steel Boom & stands, I'm currently using speedlites from an Alu boom https://vimeo.com/70849504 on an Alu stand - ?not ideal, but lighter than a 1052!)

. . those are Pixapro K-010027 stand, similar to MSE's B387486. Lastolite LA8446-Grip-Head holding Lastolite's non rotating extending handle LL LS2453 as a boom.
