Question Higher adjustable speaker stands?

I'm about to purchase the Ventriloquist VT-12 + STF-2 Sale package.
Everyone (including partsexpress) sells 48 inch maximum height adjustable speaker stands.
Currently my ear level is 36 inches.
The VT-12 manual suggests "rear channel surround speakers ... Set them several feet higher than ear level.".
Does anyone know of higher than 48" adjustable stands?
I'm assuming their design would still be stable (wider base).
For flexibility, I'd rather not wall mount them.

These Vogel's go up to 52", although I imagine you were aiming for a bit more than only 4 extra inches...

I got a pair from parts express at a discount because the box was damaged, however the stands were in perfect condition. They still have some here:

They are pretty nice - thick powdercoating, heavy bases, very stable.

As per Dr. Hsu's recommendation for my setup (with couch very close to wall) rear center must be several feet above ear level. Rear center can be wall mounted high above listening area or ceiling mounted firing down at the listening area. But the rear surronds (left & right) can be slightly above ear level, pointed at the listening area. In my case, rear surrounds are mounted on 48" stands and they sound awesome. I have the rear center about 3.5 feet above listening area mounted on wall.
