    should consider using light stands instead of cheap tripod

    actually i just need something cheap & light to place the SB600.
    Already got the AS-19 with tripod female hole, which can fix onto a tripod.

    for light stand, it sort of look "under-use" for SB600.
    whereas a tripod can also be use for camera.

    the light stand which I saw is $24, and a cheap tripod may not as cheap and compact as this, don't forget if you only have one tripod, you can't use it to mount camera and flash at the same time.

    btw, most cheap tripod don't go as high as 1.5.
