Hello,

I'm looking for a cheap ( preferable 40-60 euro) portable background stand.
My eye fell on the "http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/62542-REG/Westcott_1103_Background_Stand_for_Illuminator.html which supports backgrounds up to 8 feet - but the problem is that I can't seem to get it here in europe (netherlands/germany).

I found this one "savage LS-C" http://www.cameranu.nl/nl/studio-accessoires/achtergrond-systemen/savage/savage-ls-c8-background-stand-voor-collapsibles/h5084_21604_183854/ but it's for another background and I'm not sure it'll fit ( it's for 1,83 - which would be 17 cm's too short... or maybe it'll just fit?)..
Does someone have this stand + botero background (200cm x 150cm which is +/- 7x5 feet ) and knows if it's usable?

Or are there alternatives I could look at ?

I bought one today but checked with a few Ebay vendors first indicating I wanted quality vs. price.  Most pointed to a brand called Linco saying they were the sturdiest. Sure enough I inquired with them and found their stands are much more durable and constructed better supporting up to 15 lbs, 3 year wararnty as well.  Here's their store  - whether they ship to Euro I'm not sure

I know Adorama sells a few of their items as well on ebay and at adorama.com

Good luck
Thanks
