Two tripod base lighting stands with 3 telescoping vertical shafts
Tension locking knobs and locking pin adjust and secure height to a max of 11.5'
T-bars hold 4 par cans each
Two 5' truss sections hold 4 par cans each
The affordable Backline stand and truss includes mounting hardware and features rock solid construction. Its black aluminum finish looks fantastic and practically disappears on most stages. Each of the 2 included T-bars holds up to 4 lights and the I-beam holds up to 8 lights. Specs include a 10-foot span, and a very impressive total load capacity of 200 lbs. (evenly distributed). This is one fantastic value! 38 lbs.

The box arrived clearly damaged with holes and tears. I'm not sure what happened to the actual aluminum, but there are two huge scrapes on the poles. A group of us tried for several hours to get all the holes for the screws to line up properly on the poles and pole inserts. No matter which way you turn or twist the pole inserts there is absolutely no way to get everything to line up. The holes were drilled incorrectly, which means it can't be put together properly, which means the integrity of the whole truss is questionable. I don't feel comfortable hanging lights and curtains on this things when it can't be locked into place. I was told the "On-Stage" company is very reputable and has great quality gear - I'm guessing that's changed!
I bought virtually the same product from Pyle Pro, which I chose because it was slightly taller and $25 cheaper. It looked like a truck had run over the package. There were bent parts, broken welds, broken connectors, you name it. The UPS person even left a note advising me to return the product because of the shabby look of the packaging. I did return the product after taking pictures of it and ordered another, thinking it was a fluke. They sent the same exact set of stands back. They had replaced the broken plastic connectors, but it still had the same bent parts and broken welds. And this package arrived looking even worse. Since I needed to use the stands, I kept them figuring that I could get by with the non-broken parts.
Then I bought almost the same unit from On-Stage. The On-Stage product is worlds better. The box arrived whole. There were no scratched or broken pieces. The construction is far superior. And amazingly enough, the whole thing is alot...
We've used it for one gig so far.... 99% positive. One change I'd like (later).
Shipped from Amazon warehouse. I am a prime member, and even at 40 lbs and a very large 5+ft box, this thing was delivered NEXT DAY for the small $3.99 next-day fee!!
Box was in great shape. Shipped UPS. No visible damage. Inside, only problem was a cracked knob.
Assembly was very fast. Really no problems with things lining up. Getting the pins in was a little tricky, but realized that with a 10ft truss it puts weight on things and throws the alignment off. I actually built this the first time by myself at the house, only needing a family member to help for 60 seconds to alight the truss into the holes.
The unit itself... I think the construction is very solid, very thick. This is not a thin umbrella shaft that some reviews had me worried about. A great balance between being strong enough to last, but light enough to move around.
