I can't actually find the exact stand, but it's something like this -
Something like this may also interest you.
I own this drum floor stand on my desk and it's very stable. I use it to reach out farther from the base than other stands so if you don't push out too far with a heavy mic or better yet use a counterweight, it should work well.
I've also have used this stand with a Heil PR40 and shock mount but that combo isn't as heavy and it is not stable reaching that angle in the photo under load without tipping. It gets about 15 degrees from verticle and 22.5 degrees is tippy even with a lighter mic.
A vertical stand with a thick base would work, though. Or a higher end swing arm, a Rode or Heil.
Stands depend on what you want/meed.
I just got this one in last week. It was very stable. I needed something with a little bit of throw and it worked fine.
I have two of these. A little tippy with heavier mics. I have them at about a 30 degree angle stably but if you want more you can sandbag it.
And I have a couple of these. They are find, nothing special.
I have a few more: a Heil boom arm and a few others. It all depends on what you need them to do. On-Stage is a value brand but I've had decent luck with them.
As far as cabling, just don't get the absolute cheapest cables. There are definitely pro brands but I've had reasonably good luck. I like right angled cables so I may be getting brands you don't get.
