They have some real weight to them,  some type of pneumatic damping on retraction, a metal cast base and a nice oversize lock nut.

I have had some 9700 series stands and they are a good choice. They also have a counerbalance on the arm. But the lower level OSS stands are junk.

Does anyone know why this K&M boom is not for sale in the US?

Maybe they don't want those cheap durable mic stand customers... ;)

k&m aint cheap, but very reliable. I think the boom is a spare part, about $20-25.

So an update to my post; the leg housing knob is not tightening anymore, essentially the shaft is touching the floor. Not really a dealbreaker for me but is for others.

Atlas is good for everything except the boom clutches.  Unless something has changed they will fail fairly quickly.

Gotta love MS20 round base setups. 

There is a reason K&M is found is just about every large/medium operator mic stand trunk.
