Kup0 has three different sizes of Century or C-Stands: 20″, 30″ & 40″. To clarify what these numbers mean, this is the length of the riser section when it’s completely collapsed. Since all C-Stand riser sections are double risers, this means that there are a total of three sections, The Main Riser Section, the first riser section and the second riser section. So in essence if you multiplied the length of the riser section by three and added the heigh of the base, you would come to the total height of your C-Stand.
One of the many advantages of the Turtle Base C-Stands is that the riser sections are removable. Say you purchases a 40″ Double Riser Stand and you it is too tall for your current application, if you didn’t want to purchase a complete 20″ C-Stand, you can always just purchase the just the 20″ Riser Section, thereby saving you money.

October Promotion – Take advantage of this 20% off hot deal on one of the most useful clamps in Kupo’s grip arsenal, the 9″ Super Viser Clamp (KG600212)
Fashioned after the famous Cardellini Clamp, the Super Viser is an extremely strong and versatile clamp. It can mount securely onto round and square objects, or just about any unique shape up to 8″ in diameter. The jaw position remains fixed on one side of the clamp, enabling it to be mounted where limited space is available. The specially formulated grip pad provides a strong grip, yet protects the surface it’s clamped around. Besides the built-in baby pin, another Kupo innovation outfits this clamp with a hexagonal receiver that accepts the full compliment of Convi Clamp accessories. Another advantage of this clamp is has a chamfered slot running down the back of the main bolt. This keeps the jaws from rotating freely, around the threaded central bolt, maintaining their locations so you can easily mount the clamp with one hand. These clamps boasts an impressive load capacity of 66.1 lbs (30 Kg) and comes in a silver aluminum finish.

This question was sent to me via our free Personal Gear Guru service by Cesar B., asking about rigging a Nikon SB-900 flash using the included plastic stand.
Q: CESAR B.
What size of a hex stud for a stand of a Nikon SB-900 flash, please?
A: GEAR GURU
In addition to the the Hex Stud, a lot of people choose the Tilting Umbrella Adapter with KG000912 & KG001112 studs, http://www.kupogrip.com/tilting-umbrella-adapter-studs
/. This gives you the ability to angle your flash and use an umbrella to get a large soft light source from your speedlight, as well as mount it on a light stand.
If you want something a bit stronger then the plastic base, you could always pick up the hot shoe adapter as well, http://www.kupogrip.com/hot-shoe-adapter
/ which is all metal, is much stronger, and locks positively around the shoe, whereas the speedlight stand is plastic, and the flash is only pressure fit.
I hope I answered your question. If I can help you any further, please let me know!
