I bought this for when i go travelling, and honestly i will probably not bring it, its heavy alright but then thats what make's it durable, i am a heavy hitter when using a djembe so it works perfectly for me, the stand has a recommended limit for the legs to go, this is grand for the average sized person but not for a taller person over 6 feet, i used it standing and while sitting on a high bar stool and i had to raise it passed the maximum recommended limit.
overall I am glad i bought it, it is perfect for what i use it for both a djembe and also a conga at times, it is quick to set up and does fold away nicely.
If i was Pearl i would consider making this a bit lighter for those who travel and need to keep weight down in the airports and also extending the legs for taller people
This is a great solid stand, versatile for various drum uses, but I found it extremely heavy, so not so suitable for portability for gigs. I wanted a single conga stand so I could have 3 congas on gigs. (2 on a double stand and then another)
A better choice (for Conga) would be the LP aluminium Futurelight stand.
I sold my PC-900 and got that instead as it's much lighter to carry and does a good job.
