I've got a couple of cheap ones at the moment, which I use for my youth group sessions for the council. They get treated pretty roughly and the constant undoing / adjusting (see also; forcing without undoing!) by the kids is taking its toll add they're going a little droopy. Rather than keep replacing them I was wondering if anyone knows of a decent stand, preferably boom/tripod style, with wick release / tensioned moving parts so they don't get constantly wrecked.
Budget minimal, as it comes off my bottom line although obviously I'm looking at an annual cost vs benefit.
Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you
