condition: good
make / manufacturer: Bogen Manfrotto
UPDATE: Junior Boom pictured has been sold. The stand remains available.

These are absolute tanks! If you need height or reach, you'll be pressed to find a combo more capable than these two. I have had them for about 15 years and am no longer doing any studio photography. I've held off selling these because of the thought of having to ship them!

I live in Cameron Park, but would drive to meet you in the Sacramento area.

The boom is what Matthews is still calling their Junior Boom (the model numbers have changed over the years). It has a 25# counterweight and extends to 10 feet.

The stand is labeled a "Bogen 3079" that is no longer in production. I've tried to find information on it, but the 3079 number comes up with a "Super stand" with three risers (this one only has two). This one appears to be similar to the Manfrotto 126 being made now.

The stand also has the caster set to wheel it around.

Both are in good condition. The counterweight on the boom has some flaking paint, but everything clamps tight, extends, etc... I noticed the stand has a slight bend on the leveling leg. I always assumed this was to give the leveling mechanism some negative height to work its magic. But I don't see this in any photos of these stands. But I also don't see any signs of distress in the leg. I've used it like it is and never had a problem.
