    I love the fact that there's no central strut under you to fall onto.

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    bigfoot, I am not too far behind you on height, weight is a good portion less though. Great design. Thanks again for posting and a big warm welcome from Guam, ''where America's day begins''.

    Looks mighty nice - I've been pondering on how to mod some of the different types of stands presented on HF, so it fits what I want out of it - looks like you kinda had to do the same - good ideas to add to the list of ideas to consider - thanks for sharing!
