    I've worked my way through about 6 of these. The plastic component that holds the umbrella is reveted to the reflector and come loose after moderate use. This plastic part has broken on a couple of mine as well. Maybe with a super small and light weight brolly you wouldn't have problems. Not much choice though. I don't know of any alternatives.

    Comments about Bowens 6.0" Wide-Angle Umbrella Reflector, 120 Degrees:

    Upon opening up the packaging, this is obviously a higher quality product. The feel and construction is top notch. My only reservation is with the welding from the umbrella connector to the reflector. So far, it hasn't broken, but it looks and feels a little soft.

    Comments about Bowens 6.0" Wide-Angle Umbrella Reflector, 120 Degrees:

    I use this if I need sharp light with pronounced shadows, or if I need to put an umbrella on my Bowens lights. It is a bit pricey, but there are no other options to attach an umbrella to Bowens lights. Otherwise, it is a great product!

    Comments about Bowens 6.0" Wide-Angle Umbrella Reflector, 120 Degrees:

    I bought a Bowens monolight, and I've always been used to monolights coming with a reflector. So, I was a little put off by having to buy an extra reflector. This is obviously high-quality, though. The only downside was the price. When I'm used to getting these for free with other monolights, it seemed bit much to have to buy this for general use in our studio.

      Purchased this reflector to better direct the light into an umbrella. The umbrella holder, although practical, won't hold large umbrellas.

      Comments about Bowens 6.0" Wide-Angle Umbrella Reflector, 120 Degrees:

      I needed two of these reflectors with umbrella mounts to go with two new Bowens monolights that did not include the reflectors. Third part reflectors do not have the brolly mounts, so getting the OEM versions were essential. These are Bowens OEM and they arrived before the monolights from Bowens. Fit perfectly and B&H's prompt order processing and delivery saved the day!

        This reflector is like the headline says , simple and to the point. It firmly holds the umbrella in place and is fully adjustable. The only drawback to them is they are made of aluminum and while light, are easily dented.
