          I bought this speed ring to attach my Chimera soft box to a Profoto D1. It's very well made and easy to use. It attaches to the D1 head easily and securely. Rotating the soft box from vertical to horizontal is very smooth. I highly recommend this product.

              Comments about Chimera Speed Ring for Profoto:

              I bought one of these about 11 years ago, and it recently failed, so I bought another as a replacement. Pretty good run, I'd say.

              I was using a large softbox, and it just collapsed, and fell off the light. The plastic part had just snapped, so the softbox collapsed. If someone or something valuable had been beneath, the softbox would have fallen on them, which makes me pretty nervous, but not nervous enough to spend the extra money for the all aluminum version of the speedring.

              There have been a couple of occasions on which the springy steel bands that go around the rubber sleeve as part of the locking mechanism have come out of the channels in the rubber sleeve, but this is easily fixed without tools.

              Overall a good piece of gear. Not perfect, but good.

                I use this with a Chimera SUPER PRO PLUS medium 36x48" softbox for location work. Works great as long as you don't have a hex style softbox. More affordable than the ProFoto brand.

                  I am a regular user of octabanks so all my rings had previously been universal rings. I do have a small chimera strip that just never seems to fit the universal rings right. Chimera's rotating ring is a perfect fit.
