    The reflector adaptor is necessary to use the Quadra heads with any standard softboxes or octas. You simply have to have it. Overall, it is made very well. However, like Elinchrom states, it can only be used with softboxes of a certain size. The issue is weight. Too much weight and the unit will begin to lean down and will not hold its position. Since there is no other choice at this time, it gets four stars. If there were a better choice, hopefully cheaper, then you might want to look there. The construction is metal, stainless where needed, and some plastic. Overall, pretty good.

    Especially being swiss, I think these were rush to market, as a previous reviewer stated it tended to lean over and the clamp area should have made better made. Pivot point uses rubber to grip, and it barely works, forcing one to clamp with more force, with plastic construction, somewhat dicey. I modified mine by taking a set of what look like metallize rubber from a pair of stobes, the pivot point are more secure and clamp with more authority. Also bits of flashing had to be cleaned up and no instruction came in the box. In the end since these just hold the strobes, I cannot believe they made a more rugged version for the versatile Quadra units. I guess in the end a Company has to decide about profit margin I guess.

    Locking mechanism needs improvement

      Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Reflector Adaptor for EL Reflectors:

      I am using this product with my Elinchrom Rotalux 39" octa to be able to support it on lighting stand and use my flash with it.

      It does the job but you have to be careful as the locking mechanism may be unlocked and the softbox will just fall down (often happens to me)

      The handle is also made of weak plastic, and could be easily broken if you apply some extra force to tight it in position. You may need to think to replace it with manfrotto handle (used in umbrella mounts)

      Knowing this product high price, you would expect high build quality, but sadly this is not!

      Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Reflector Adaptor for EL Reflectors:

      If you have any standard Elinchrom light modifiers you really should have this adapter. It makes the Quadra so much more versatile. It's especially nice when you want to boost the Quadra's output with reflectors like the Maxilight or silver beauty dishes.

      Functionable for Lightweight Modifiers

      Best Uses

        Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Reflector Adaptor for EL Reflectors:

        I purchased a few of these to use in conjunction with the ranger quadras so I may use the Rotalux line of modifiers as well as use heavier umbrellas and other larger modifiers.
        They have worked decently for over a year, however the weak link in this product tends to be within the plastic frame itself as the connector/spud receiver is a simply an aluminum sleeve inserted into the plastic housing, which will crack after prolonged use.
        Connecting a 60" umbrella or 22" Beauty dish seems to have weakened the structure faster.
        While these are necessary for using quadras with most modifiers, the pricepoint and weakness barely justify the price.

            First, I love my Quadra set up. I have two of these adaptors as they were necessary to accommodate anything other than the handful of Quadra specific modifiers. Within the first week, the plastic base cracked. I took these to a machine fabricator to have the bottom part made out of aluminum. Ended up costing me about [$] each more but I don't have to worry about anything breaking near the mount anymore.

            Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Reflector Adaptor for EL Reflectors:

            I bought this for a specific use case on location; the ability to leverage my small and mid-size elinchrom softboxes with my speedlites instead of bulkier AC packs/Quadra etc. I mount the boxes with this adaptor to a nano stand and use the Manfrotto articulated arm (single) to position a 580EX II speedlite behind it (just fits). This is a plastic adapter and while well-made, it is a bit pricey IMO... If this were a metal base or perhaps a bit heavier constructed I would give it 5 stars. ...trade off is always weight though and most people probably prefer lighter vs heavier for Quadra/location kits.

                Comments about Elinchrom Ranger Quadra Reflector Adaptor for EL Reflectors:

                Once you've the Deep Octa with a Ranger Quadra, it's not likely you'll ever want to use another brand of light modifier again. The Reflector Adaptor is the only way to use both. If you need two, get three. For those rare but almost inevitable times that wind or humanity knocks your light stand to the ground, the adapter seems to sustain the most damage. Better the adapter than the light itself.

                  A must have if you want to use regular modifiers. I used this with a 39" Deep Octa to mount the Quadra A-head. You have to watch the sharp edges inside when mounting the head. I can see why some people breaks the arm (there's a Manfrotto mod on the net) as the material can get weaken from repeated use or over tightening.

                  I am not sure if it is as flimsy as some of the other reviews suggest, but it is not as sturdy as the light modifier mounts on studio strobes.

                  It is a little awkard to attached the Quadra head onto this mount and there is no protection or cover for the flash tube when no softbox or reflector is attached (which you have for the quadra head in the standard reflector.

                  It would have just been easier if Elinchrom just made the mount part of the quadra head, instead of the smaller mount that fits the very limited number of modifiers specific to the Quadra Ranger.

                          Does the job - holds my 39" Deep Octa or a 27" Maxisoft without issues so far. I agree with other reviews out there that it seems a little flimsy. If Elinchrom could have just made it sturdier they'd have a great solution for the small size of the Quadra and the need for big modifiers sometimes. Only had it for a couple weeks now so we'll hope it lasts. Expensive for what it is though!

                            An essential add-on to the Ranger Quadra so you can use their wide variety of light modifiers.

                            I use this for teh 39" Deep Throat Rotalux and that is the limit for this adapter as far as size/weight goes. It just seems to flex more than it should for what you pay for it.

                            This is a must have for the Quadra in order to use a long throw reflector. It's not quick and easy to set up and loosing screws is too easy.

                              The Rangers are great lights and the ability to use modifiers is essential. These adapters very simply allow for the mounting of modifiers...not too much to review. The one thing I will say is that they are not easy to remove. Attaching them isn't bad, but it's a struggle to remove them.
