DW 5000 and 9000 boom stand parts can be interchanged.
As someone who has a bias against the toothless tilter that already owned 5000 boom stands I didn't want to fully upgrade just to set up quicker. Instead I bought the "tubes" and memory locks. Cheaper than buying four $160 stands to get the same result.
$160 minus $50 (for the 5000 stands with 9000 arms, guessing)
A New Tube and boom arm set for around $64 (minus around ten for the arms) store credit for the 5000 parts, might be around $49.
