I have been raving about these stands to anyone that will listen for a long time now. As a custom drum kit builder, I struggled for a long time to find reasonably priced hardware to sell with my kits. I bought my first Millenium CS-901 pro cymbal stand many years ago and have since bought many more. The first pair went to a customer of mine and are still as rock solid as the day they arrived. They've been gigged, toured and thrown around yet they still hold up to any punishment thrown at them. They are the most heavy duty, over-engineered stands I've come across in 27 years of drumming and the most reasonable priced too! I wouldn't recommend any other stands for this price, or even double the price!
