I lick the Modern stands - well built and rugged stainless steel, chrome steel, and cast components.
I prefer the latest Matthews grip heads/arms for their assured locking power. I can position a load and it will stay right where I set it rather than sinking a little as the grip head continues to tighten. I found the Modern heads to be a bit soft.
I don't care for the Modern slip-on feet. They fit outside the tube rather than being glued within. Easy enough to address. Clean the oil on the feet as delivered and use some Liquid Nails to secure them. Same goes for internal feet caps.
So, Modern (or Matthews) c-stand with Matthews head and arm.
