Speedotron MW20QC Flashtube, UV Coated - 3200w/s - for 202VF Head

B&H # SPFTUV202VF Mfr # 851125
In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $119.95

Most current, professional flash heads and monolights are equipped with user replaceable flashtubes that may simply be plugged into, and unplugged from their sockets. With proper handling, these flashtubes may last for tens of thousands of flashes under normal use.

This flashtube is UV-Coated, or UV-Corrected. UV flashtubes have a yellow appearance, and they counteract the excess blue 5700° or higher output of non-UV coated flashtubes. UV Coating lowers the color temperature to 5500°, which is the color of noon daylight on a clear day.

      Comments about Speedotron MW20QC Flashtube for 202VF:

      I've broken, bought and repaired these strobe heads many times. They're relatively inexpensive and should you crack one, you can save the flash tube by replacing the pyrex with clear silicone caulk, that if you're more than careful.

                I needed a flash tube yesterday. I made a simple phone call and it was on my doorstep the next morning. That's as close to yesterday that I'm going to get. I like the fact that the tube was in stock and packaged well for shipping. Thanks for the quick turnaround time on my order.

                      The speedotron lights are used in a studio in an educational setting. Over a hundred students a semester use these lights. So with that many operators it has to be reliable and long lasting as not all handle the lights with care.
