      I use this speedring with a 16x22 x-small speedring on my einstein. Strong & Sturdy and works well. I've used the same rings on larger softboxes and they work great.

        Comments about Chimera Speed Ring for White Lightning:

        Tested on both Alien Bee and Einstein. It fits both well but trickier to fit on Einstein as it has the frosted dome cover.

        paul c buff's line of softboxes are great but I love my Chimeras.. plus it will save me space and less to carry as my chimea softbox folds flat so that's a huge plus for me.

        may seem bit pricey for what it is but i'm sure it's small production type of thing and the convenience it provides.. worth the money.

        There's also metal construction version of this as well as quick release version. Opted for this model because reviews on those products say some don't fit too well and pricey.

        The best simple speed ring

        By Chris

        from Atlanta

        Comments about Chimera Speed Ring for White Lightning:

        Simply the best simple speed ring. Holes are lardge enough for any soft box. Rotation is smooth, it doesnt bind like other brands.

        Comments about Chimera Speed Ring for White Lightning:

        Got this to use a better quality box rather than the Paul c buff boxes. Super sturdy, well built and easy to use. Will recommend this to others.

        I had a Chimera 4x6 soft box for a another strobe. This speed ring fit my Paul C Buff Einstein e640 to the Chimera soft box with no problems. A little pricey but better than the cost of another soft box.

                Comments about Chimera Speed Ring for White Lightning:

                I searched all over town for these rings before finding them at B&H. I had been using an aluminum speed ring with a large softbox, and it was a pain in the neck to disassemble more often than not.

                Once I got the Chimera speed rings, no more fussing and cussing at the end of a shoot.
