Just amazed by the quality and stability of this stand. Well worth the price whether the normal version to save a couple of coins, or this 20 Year anniversary edition which might even be a tiny bit lighter actually.
I only bought this specific model due to colors......yes a stupid way of paying extra but looks are also important.
The yellow joint cover/system of the three legs of the other models was always a set back to purchase Hercules stands but this one matches the guitars and the furniture so my wife did not even notice the bulkier stand until I addressed the elephant in the room....I think that's one of the biggest compliments an item of this size and purpose can get
-Superior stability. Yesterday upon receiving it I hanged my Explorer and placed the stand between some furniture and it got between two heights of surface to rest on, floor and carpet.....not a single movement despite the unbalanced surface. The stand is stuck there as a tick.....I love it.
-Nice color, all black with the transparent locking holder makes much more pleasant to the eye.
-Perfect way of changing height of stand, easy fold and unfold in case of need.
-Well padded legs where the guitar gently rests
For now only thing I am missing is that it came without a bag.....I mean this is supposed to be top of the line within these products. A bit too average from Hercules not to include a nice bag with the 20 year logo or something. Ah well you get some stickers in case you are into that, not my cup of tea though.
