Advise on Century stands.

I'll be purchasing 8 century stands this month for a grip truck I'm assembling. Right now my #1 option is the Impact Master Century C Stand Kit with 40" Riser, Grip Head and Arm, and it's my #1 option because is the cheapest one... Has anyone used this stands? Are they "cheap" or a "great value"?

Thanks!

It would be bad if you have 8 C-stands but none of them can do what one good one could do.

If your buying 8 - maybe it would be better to get a few variations vs all the same kind. You might get into a situation where you need a staggering legged version for a hill, or need a taller one for some other situation.
