I have it for few weeks only, so I cannot tell anything about its long term durability.
But, I can tell you that this is a very well done snare stand with smooth regulation and cool features. Height is regulated in 2 places (moveable legs section and basket pipe). I did not measure it, but for my sitting position I can go as low to accomodate 6,5" snare (it would go lower easily) and I can go high enough to use 5" (before I had Gibraltar 9706 Pro Ultra and it was too low for 5" deep snare, with Mapex I can still go up). I am heavy hitter and this stand stays in place... if it doesn't for you, no worries, there are spikes hidden in legs that you can deploy for extra grip. Omni-ball basket regulation works very well and handle solution is very comfortable. Reasonably priced, great regulation scope, great features - I am very happy with it.
