Hi guys oover at B&H...

I am searching for a stand and boom to put a 7 feet wescott umbrella. Need to place it vertical on a boom and might also hang it... any suggestion that a boom stand might be able to with hold that weight?

This set up will work for your needs:

Designed primarily for use in lighting kits, this stand is compact and light weight. Many MSE Kit Stands employ a brake shoe system for locking off the riser tubes as opposed to pinch castings, thus permitting the use of heavier fixtures.

Matthews Maxi Kit Steel Stand - 9' 6"

The Avenger D600 Mini Boom telescopes from 46 - 83". The chrome-plated steel boom supports up to 15.4 lb at its maximum extension, mounted to an optional heavy duty light stand. It has a 5/8" receiver for the stand stud and ends in a 5/8" pin for lights or other Baby accessories.

Impact Sandbags come in a variety of shapes and weights. They are used for securing the bases of light stands and set walls. This Impact Empty Saddle Sandbag - 18 lb (Orange) has two wings, to allow draping over light stand legs. Each side of the bag has a hand strap for easy handling and hanging on hooks.
