Looking at a new hi hat stand. I’ve got a DW9000 which has a nice action but it’s just way too heavy to haul around.

Looking at the Yamaha 740 but would love to know what people are using.

I have a 1960s Rogers Supreme, but this new Rogers looks really light weight. I have and use their new cymbal stands, snare stand, and throne. All are light weight, simple, and well engineered and built.

I have a dw 6500 flat base which you might be considering for lighter weight. Its not a bad stand but it is a bit sluggish with heavier 15” hats. No problem with heavier 13” and 14” or lighter 15” so if that suits your needs its a light,compact, well built stand

Using a Pearl bought in '82. Not the lightest or the smallest, just the best. Never had a problem and still works like new. Fully adjustable. Footboards have to match.

I have the new Rogers hi hat and I really like it. It's very light, very smooth and adjustable enough. The only down side is the legs tend to bind up a little when you're folding them up.

If I was going for a heavy duty stand (but lighter than the DW) I would go with a Tama Leverglide. The feel of those is amazing.

if you want as light as possible, try the Canopus lightweight stand, I've been using it for a few years now and I think it's great...it's pretty no frills and is not nearly as adjustable as other (much heavier) stands, but it's very light

I have the Yamaha HS740 and I love it. Lightweight, shorter rod, fairly inexpensive but sturdy. I got mine for $35 new at the time, so it really punches above its weight. I've had it since 2014 and it's still like new.

I have a few hi-hat stands that match my pedals:

- Pearl H2000 Eliminator (2-legged, interchangeable cams)
- Yamaha HS1000 (2-legged, direct drive)
- Pearl H150S (single-braced, flat-base)

The Pearl Eliminator is unshakable, very responsive, and allows all kinds of adjustments for personal touch, but I imagine not being much lighter than the DW 9000 stand. The Yamaha is surprisingly light but unstable, and much more responsive (direct drive). The flat-based Pearl is pretty light (not extremely), sufficiently responsive , and has a swiveling base, but can wobble if the ground is uneven or soft and mushy.

You can maybe consider the newer incarnation of Yamaha stands, or maybe a Gibraltar or Mapex Falcon stand, if you don't like the Speed Cobra mentioned earlier, but still want a lighter (but not too light) stand:
