Main concern about this stand was - if it will slide away. And it does. Maybe on a carpet surface it's cool, but otherwise it's just keep sliding. Action is a bit sluggish too, but for the price point it's pretty ok. The clutch is very basic and I suggest you to get something better. Otherwise, it has very "slim" profile and does pack down nicely. I base my review due to prior use of pro hi-hat stands, as this is for my practice set.
