The lightweight stands come with clips on two sides that allow multiple stands to be attached together, facilitating easier carrying.  This could be useful if transporting multiple stands without a case.  The 7' version ($70) weighs 2.42 lbs and supports 8.8 lbs of load while the 8' version ($77) weighs 2.86 lbs and supports 11 lbs of load.  Both are air-cushioned, a necessity for preventing damage from loosening the joints too quickly.  Could you see this being something practical for you?

Kupo also showed some C-stand accessories, such as a GoPro mount and a tripod head adapter for a turtle base.
