      This works just as it should but I only gave it 4 stars because the teflon inserts meant to let you turn your softbox are VERY stiff. In order for it to turn you pretty much need to hold onto the light stand and really give it a tug. You don't want a ring that moves on it's own but this is a bit much.

      Mine broke too...

      In my case, two of the "teeth" came off. The rest of my Travelite/Bowens speed rings have never had this problem and have worked perfectly for 5+ years. ...Read complete review

      In my case, two of the "teeth" came off. The rest of my Travelite/Bowens speed rings have never had this problem and have worked perfectly for 5+ years. This, I only got a few uses out of it. Not too happy.

            I"m using the speed ring on a photoflex Mono Light,
            it fits on my lighthouse softbox with out any adjustment.
            I was using it with the snoot in place but is was too heavy, because of the 5 inch length.

              Comments about Photoflex Speed Ring for Bowens, Impact:

              I expected to have a better result because this was not the cheapest available.

              I use it with a 400w/s impact strobe and a large softbox. The problem is that with this large softbox it is quite difficult to install, and it not attaches too firm. It winks insise and the lock of the strobe does not do its job as should.

                  For the softboxes I purchased I had to buy this, speed rings whould be universal, but it's not, It's expensive and But again I had no choice but to buy it.
                  Hate the price. Build is solid and seems like good quality but that remains to be seen.

                          Correct speed ring that hooked up my Octodome soft box with my Bowen's lights. It was very hard to locate this speed ring.

                                      This speed ring is ok,does the job.BUT....manufacturer....check out the Bowens original speed rings.These bad boys have a clip that allow the speed ring to fold in half,relaes the pressure for easy assembly....AND....on the squareish soft boxes,this lets them fols flat fully assembled and transport like a folder envelop....check it out.

                                              I have this product on my wish list for a few months, and finally I decided to try it out. I am holding it in my hands and it's pretty strong and light weight. I am planning to get two more in the near future.

                                                    They don't seem to fit perfect on the Bowen Monolights, They go on ok, but don't lock in. With bowen stuff you cant turn the rings, but with this one, it turns, and if you get to where the 3 prongs are lined up where you put them on, they will come out.

                                                    This works just as it should but I only gave it 4 stars because the teflon inserts meant to let you turn your softbox are VERY stiff. In order for it to turn you pretty much need to hold onto the light stand and really give it a tug. You don't want a ring that moves on it's own but this is a bit much.

                                                        In my case, two of the "teeth" came off. The rest of my Travelite/Bowens speed rings have never had this problem and have worked perfectly for 5+ years. This, I only got a few uses out of it. Not too happy.
