            Great as a general reflector with an angle between 45 and 95 degrees. Takes Speedotron 7" grids - 4 of these high quality grids cost less than one Profoto grid for the zoom reflector 2.

            Comments about 7" Grid Reflector for Profoto Flash Heads:

            For $ you get 4 good Speedotron grids - that's less than for one Profoto grid. They fit on this reflector.Also, this reflector is as good as the expensive zoom reflector 2, which only allows you to use the expensive Profoto grids.It is much, much better than the old zoom reflector 1. If you are thinking of getting one second hand - don't do it, get this one instead. Better light shaping.

                This really is a 7" reflector.

                  Comments about 7" Grid Reflector for Profoto Flash Heads:

                  I purchased this and the speedotron 7" grid set together and they work great with each other. The grids fit in nicely in and don't fall out when turned upside down. There is a little and I mean little light leak out of the side. For the most part it won't matter. I shoot both product and people so I do understand reflections. If I find that that little light leak is a problem then I will tape it. For the 98% of the other times it will be fine. Also, I tried Alien Bee grids in the holder and they work too but the speedotron grids have a longer retaining metal spring that I prefer over the alien bee's.
                  I will be using this reflector and grids on my Acute heads and the D1 mono heads. It works great.
                  Has Profoto build and finish. The inside of the reflector is flat reflective not dimpled. I would not use this as a reflector without grids unless it was with an umbrella and I didn't have the disc reflector available or I was bouncing into a wall. I have the older style zoom reflectors and find that they are fine when using directly on people or on the set.
                  Focusable.
                  Yes this is still profoto so it is a focusable reflector with the grids. I have found that I am able to make the center hotter or flatter. I am thinking about getting another one to have 2 on hand. Now I don't want to scratch it, but you know these things will.

                      Since I shoot with D1's, I primarily use this to hold grids. However, it does work to limit spill as well. Conveniently, the reflector has the spread limits marked relative to the guide markers on the head. The really great thing here is that this uses 7" grids, not the 7-1/8" grids that are Profoto-only. Thus you can save about 75% on the grids.

                        Comments about 7" Grid Reflector for Profoto Flash Heads:

                        I use these as a Kickers or a rake-lights on location. i also have a Profoto grid set for the zoom reflectors but like the transportability and the ability to use other 7" grids that are much more affordable than profoto's grids. For outdoor location they are perfect and if you shoot like i do, profoto modifiers always get dinged up and get wear on them no matter how hard you try if you shoot on location. point being, I will have to replace it at some point. I am actually surprised, but pleased that profoto made something for after market and cross platform use.
                        Works great, but the build quality of the larger grids are better for daily use.
