        Comments about Westcott Spiderlite TD5 Small 1 Light Kit:

        we currently use alien bee studio strobes and softboxes and decided to try a set of westcott to see if constant lighting is all it is promoted to be. TD5 is well-made and too expensive, considering the fact it is nothing more than machined metal and commercial switches and sockets. but it works as advertised. 5 third-party 27w 5500k CFL bulbs produce a fair amount of light but will require a faster than normal lens. westcott softbox has nicer outer material and finer inner reflective surface than alien bee/jtl boxes we have used, but basic design and workmenship is similiar, and we would not pay a premium for more of these softboxes. assembling the 16X22 softbox requires two adults, preferably one of whom has prior experience as a wrestler since getting the rods in the box and the TD5 holes is no small challenge. 10' stand included with kit is serviceable but nothing more than an average 10' stand. wish that the air-cushioned stands had been included in the kits since they are only ten dollars more on the open market.
