      I initially bought this speedring to replace the one currently in use by my large octogonal softbox.

      The reason being very simple, i wanted to get the softbox mounted on the stand directly, as opposed to weighting down the flash.

      This speedring contains 10 holes total, if i counted right, and 2 of them are threaded at least.

      Using the threaded hole, i can mount it directly on a heavy duty bracket which is on the lightstand. Giving me all the normal flexibility, and just having the flash take no weight other then its own.

      Invaluable! Especially after 1 flash's mount broke from the weight and a sudden push.

      The downside ? It recesses most flashes a bit too much, the tunneling is annoying but not particularly bad, a simple fix would of been to flip the speedring mount to allow the flash heads to be further out.

      I bought this ring to mount my Silverdome nxt on BX-500 Ri head, the ring didn't go all the way to lock on the head. Some careful correction with jewelers' files fixed this in about an hour. It looks like a solid high quality product, it now fits, but requires skills to put it on and off, since the ring rotates on the mount and one needs to rotate the ring mount itself on the head to click it into position, the soft box is heavy and may damage the head if you drop it. Photoflex should revise this product with some locks to stop the ring from spinning to allow for proper locking motion.

            I use this to attach my Photoflex Octoadome to the Elinchrom Quadra reflector adapter. It attaches quickly and securely, adding minimal weight. I like to use the setup on a handheld boom and this works brilliantly.

              The Speed Ring fits perfectly on the stock Elinchrom D2 and D4 strobes without any hassles. I used this Speed ring in combination with my Photoflex Litedome Q39. The metal construction makes the Speed ring more durable and strudy. Only thing about the product once you received it is to tighten or loosen the speed ring with a phillips screw driver to your specification as it is a little lose when you first get it.

                This ring is durable and the quality is not an issue. It was found that some BXRI units have posed fitting issue for Photoflex and research has indicated that the first run of BXRI heads were made slightly off spec. by Elinchrom. The situation has been rectified and the issue has been solved.

                Maybe it's just me... and my husband... but it took us 30 minutes to attach this speed ring to my monolight. I have the impact 100ex, and couldn't get it to latch. The whole thing kept falling off with my softbox. We finally gripped it from the back and rotated it. geez.

                      This speedring works. It's one of the more inexpensive speedrings. And it can be used for strip boxes, regular softboxes, and even octoboxes.

                      However, if you can afford the slight extra cost (~50% more expensive) and you aren't needing it for an octobox, then you're better served buying the quick release speedring that Chimera makes. I haven't tried using it with a Photoflex softbox, but it should work fine. You might contact B&H to verify, but the ease of use is unrivaled. For location work, speed can be everything. It certainly can mean how much money you are making per hour.

                      If ease of use is less important than cost, by all means this is a good speedring. I have about 10 of these. Though I wish I could have afforded going Chimera.

                                I used this speed ring to go between an elinchrom light head and a photoflex softbox. Attaches great.

                                It's a reasonable price

                                  I bought this because I have a couple of Photoflex softboxes I needed it for. It is well made but doesn't install as smoothly as an Elinchrom OEM unit or is as simple to use. I am switching all my Photoflex softboxes to Elinchrom for their ease of use and light quality.
