Perfect for heavy vocal condensers.
I tried using regular mic stands for my LDC vocal mics. No matter how hard I cranked the tension down, they sagged down. They wanted to tip over, so I bought a 6# counterweight, but it didn't fit the arm, just the base. Then it didn't tip, but was very hard to move since that leg would drag along the floor.
So, I bought the On-Stage 7650 after resisting the price for my back room studio at home.
What a delight it is. It solved all the problems of the small mic stands. It's heavy. The base is substantial, the arm can be long or longer with the addition of an extension. (I didn't need) You can slide the arm and counterweight so the gear is balanced, and the tension is toothed not a friction pad.
It could probably extend up to the ceiling, but I keep it just above my head.
I'm currently using a Shure SM-7 B on it.
They send casters to make moving easier, and even include a cheap wrench for the bolts.
I think they've thought of everything, even wire clips, If only they made it for $30!!!!
The pain of paying is long forgotten when I see how well it functions.
