I've been singing backing for years behind the kit and I can tell you how awful it is trying to work a standard mic stand into position around your playing space. It's a nightmare. Try going an entire set without hitting your mic and/or stand with your sticks and/or head because you can't position it correctly. This product changed ALL of that.
I swear these things are a best kept secret in the industry. I have introduced so many drummers to this on the road, it's unbelieveable. I decided to go with the XL version because I wanted the extra length in order to be able to hang my mic over my head from behind me on stage. So far it's survived close to 100 shows and it still looks and works the same as it did right out of the box. I bend and unbend this thing several times every week and it always continues to hold the shape that I put it in without fail, all while supporting the weight of a Shure sm58.
This product obviously has many other practical applications, but it is an absolutely god-send to a drummer who does vocals.
It's an absolute must-have.
