Lift assist speaker stands?

Anyone have experience with any of these? Or any others?
Was curious at to what the best option would be.

Gator
Hercules
Frankenstand
Ultimate Support

Hey Mike,I can highly recommend the Ultimate Support Telelock stands,I have 4 of them & have owned the first pair for almost 20 years with zero issues.They make setting up heavy monitors much easier & are very stable.

I've yet to see a decent stand from Hercules, don't have enough experience with the other brands listed.
K&M hand crank stands are well made, light and reasonably priced. For heavy speakers with yokes (e.g. Meyer CQ), windup lighting stands seem to be the best choice.

Maybe overkill but I use ST132's
Six feet or a little less then 2 meters minimum or up to 13ft.
The only thing I can say about the lift assist stands is keep your head clear
of that pole. Those things can shoot out and hit you in the face.
Stand clear!

I owned a pair of the Ultimate support TS100B lift assist and they were great for getting a pair of 60 lb. HPR122i's up and back down safely with one person. I believe they have a 100lb limit.
