This Chimera Quick Release Speed Ring allows mounting of Chimera, or almost any other brand rectangular softbox to the Profoto Series of flash heads.

The Quick Release Series releases the tension of the wands in the frame of your softbox, allowing it to collapse easily for breakdown, or for moving on quickly to the next setup without disassembling the box.

        Comments about Chimera Quick Release Speed Ring for Profoto:

        I would have given this 5 stars, but they are a bit pricey.

        That said, the only thing worse than struggling to break down a softbox is struggling to break down a soft box in front of a client. The term "speed ring" was a misnomer before these came along -- they make setting up and taking down a softbox fast and easy.

                  This speed ring set up is so ingenious. My hands are fairly strong but I've often needed help with set up and breakdown. No more, I'm freed of struggling with my soft boxes thanks to the Quick Release Speed ring. Expensive and worth it!

                    I shoot artwork in multiple locations per day and am constantly on the move. These rings set up and break down very easily. They are heavy-duty aluminum with smooth rotation and rubber spring clasp fasteners.

                      I use these with large rectangular softboxes. They are about the same price as Profoto rings, and while setup takes a few seconds longer, knock down becomes a breeze.

                          After using this speed ring I will never use the standard speed ring again. Setting up and taking down a soft box is quicker and easier. No more struggling to get the soft box rod into the speed ring hole.

                            Not much to say about this product other than that it does the job intended allowing quick assembly and disassembly of Chimera soft boxes. Perfect fit for my Profoto strobes.

                                Perfect product except yellow screws, are very easy to lost when loosen.It should have on security screws for not to drop.I recommend you don't loose screws so much. This product helps you while carrying product with car or while changing location. Quality of the materiel ,paint are perfect.It is the best that I ever seen,even better than my genuine Profoto speedrings.
