Light stand - something versatile that will carry 5kg strobe

Hi, 
I'm heading into the Large Format world again, and so am looking to mount a 1200w Elinchrom style rx1200 at around 3.5-5 kg (plus need counterweight if boom, + boom).  
I'm not sure what I want yet, regular light stand vs boom, but wondering whether I could get something to cover both? 
I only want steel.  Ideally, I want to place this item in my will to be enjoyed by future generations.
I was looking at Avenger 36 Roller , but some websites I have been reading are indicating that you need to watch out for the footprint diameter.  Not sure if this is a problem on these stands...
So, I'm open to suggestions, but importantly, I am based in Europe (Switzerland).  I have seen one Avenger stand advertised here, and no non-C-STand Matthews, so don't recommend B&H etc, if you can help it .  For bonus points, if anyone could recommend a top European brand, then that would be ace.
