          What do you expect from a flash tube? It is the correct color temp as other bowens flash tubes and makes a bright light for a short period of time.

            Bought for my esprit 500DX. So this is my 3rd tube. 1st one I got melted plastic residue so I got a replacement. Didn't fit on the right connector. Tried drilling the hole bigger only to end up breaking the tube. Bought a second one. I had to open up my head to fix some loose screws and sand down some plastic residue. I tore a fitting leaf off the male plug and it fit perfectly. You may have to do the same for this tube. Don't know if these new ones were machined right or wrong.
