As light stands go, these are a good bang for your buck. They're tall and they get the job done. On the negative side, the joints are a little stiff and getting it to open can be a bit of a chore some times, but hey, overall, they're great.
I've been using these stands for approximately three months now with no problems (with the exception of one lost plastic t-nut, but that's my fault). They seem to be durable and fairly strong. They're not the largest stands and thus I wouldn't plan on flying a super heavy head with a large modifier at the full 8' foot extension. It can probably be done but I'm not sure about it. However if you're not using monoblocs outside in possibly windy conditions then this is a pretty good option for you. Obviously it's a good idea to use sandbags any time you're using lightstands, especially around other people.
I'm mostly going strobist style with them using umbrella clamps to mount Nikon SB's and some medium size modifiers and they work great for that.
I've occasionally had a little trouble with the sliding plastic collar sticking as you push it down to slide out the legs. I think I'm going to try a light teflon lubricant (from mtn. bike fork stanchions) to remedy...
This is my second Wescott Light Stand. I bought a second one to use for my second speedlite. It works very well, is easily adjustable and light weight. I know no other light stand so it's hard for me to compare. I am not a pro either, but just an amateur and sometimes i like to shoot indoors, so I bought this stand to complement my first one. I obviously would not have bought the same one if I disliked the first one. And I use this product quite a bit at home. It's easily adjustable and has the right height.
