I love the quality of stands used here...

I am told they are combo stands, and a speedrail

But I am shopping and having a hard time finding the exact materials.

here is the stand used:

http://www.bhphotovi...ight_Stand.html

the speed rail is just a piece of schedule 40 aluminum tube. with 12x12 overhead ears holding the pipe in the stand's head.

you can purchase speed rail at a local metal supply house in 21ft lengths, or smaller sometimes.

The 12x12 ear try cinemagadgets.com or modern studio supply or film tools.

It's a pretty typical set-up. The stands are Hi Rolllers. Which are combo stands (have junior reciever and lollipop) on wheels and as the name implies, raise up higher. They are heavy duty stands, great for backdrops like that outside, where wind can be an issue.

B&H is might not be your best bet for buying a lot of grip gear. I'm sure you can get most of it, but if you go straight to the manufacturers, you can also get a better idea of what is available and commonly used. Keep in mind that those stands are made of steel and fairly heavy, so shipping is not cheap. They are build very solid and last quite a while, so used it a viable option.

The big grip manufacturers are:

Modern
Matthews
Norms
American
