I've used all of DW's numerous ranges of hardware over the years. Personally I feel that the 5000 series delivers just about everything a professional or serious semi professional drummer requires. Not as heavy as the 9000 but is seriously well built enough to carry a tom holder and a 14" tom with no stability issues.
I sold all my 9000 series stands a while back and now only use these with both my Gretsch USA Custom and DW Collectors kits. 10 out of 10 DW, fabulously designed boom stand.
