I have the Gibraltar Flat base stands. They’re excellent, a bit heavy but that allows my 20 inch crash to stay put. I’ve tried other flat based stands new Ludwig are good, as was Pearl and Tama. DW was a big disappointment. I never liked any of their hardware lines but I gave the ultralight stands a try. Sold them after a two low volume gigs.
Man, I agree 100%. That is the hardware (DW) the Church set I play is set up with and they make me a nervous wreck that they are going over at any time! Not my cup of tea at all!

The new Tama cymbal stand that is the copy of the vintage Ludwigs.
They're more lightweight than my DW 6710 first generation which I prefer over the ultralight DW.
AND! They are the only stand that has rubber rings at the end of the telescoping tubes so there is no sound of the stand ever so all you hear is cymbal at any dynamic with mallet or brush or stick.
After all these years I'm selling my DW 6710 flat base stands
