    This cable is easy and fast to use. It is dependable, and without it my great camera and expensive lenses are rendered useless during weddings as I need to use my battery pack to drive the flash 2000 times a night!

    Of course I saved money. Well, the cable failed, something is broken internally inside it such that the power from my Turbo SC is not making it to the SB-900 flash. I suddenly noticed after a couple weddings that my AA batteries in the flash were drained party way through the day (normally with the Turbo SC I get through an entire wedding).Upon watching the yellow LED on the Turbo, it was flashing indicating no flash unit was attached. So they flash was not getting any power from the Quantum battery.I bought the more $ cable and it is sturdier, and recoils better also (this cheap one quickly lost is coiling tension, got all stretched).Save trouble, pay more.

      Using this with a mini cycler for faster recycle times. Like the robust build and that Paramount has been around for a long time.

              The cord has a nice tight fight to the flash module and seems to be good quality. I have only used it a couple of times, but so far so good!

                    If I could give this cord no stars, I would. It appeared to be solidly made, but the only way to make this cord work was to wedged it really hard into the flash in order for the current to flow. After two or three jobs, it stopped working altogether. I replaced it with a Lumedyne cord and that works just fine.
                    I've used various Paramount cords over the past 26 years and the results have always been intermittent.

                      The plug is a tad bigger than the sb900 holes so it is very hard to push in the sb900. The plug holes are not line-up with the pins so they did not make contact.
                      I did not work

                        Cord is great! Only thing is that connection between cable and flash (I have sb800) is very tight - almost too tight... but maybe its a good thing.
