Sorry, no pics. If the distance from the cup to the top of the stand is too short the blank is resting against the top of the rod stand and can damage the blank causing it to fracture when under load. If the cup to stand top is long enough to reach the grip imediately below the reel (high mount) then that risk goes away.
The adjustable stnds from TT address this problem nicely. A short stand (distance from cup to top) for a low mount outfit wont hurt the blank.
Tight lines, Philip
