      Comments about Lastolite Hotrod Strip Softbox (12 x 48"):

      I saw one of these already put together and got to try it out.. It in a nice strip box..but...(a big but...) The instructions have 37 steps to put it together.. grrrr.. and you have to slide rods into pockets .. one slip and you will puncture the fabric. I actually never got it together so it was tight enough around the "lollipop" bracket so that it didn't slip off. a Google search didn't offer any other help. Back it went! and got a Wescott Rapidbox Strip. I put that together in 3 mins.

      Comments about Lastolite Hotrod Strip Softbox (12 x 48"):

      I use is mainly with portrait photography indoors and love the light that it gives.

      My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that Lastolite do not produce a grid for this or their Hotrod Octa Softbox, which limits it's full use.

        Comments about Lastolite Hotrod Strip Softbox (12 x 48"):

        So I got this as a light weight solution to on-location protraits and it does a wonderful job; the light is soft and even. Of course, being collapsable it's super easy to transport around. All in all its a solid well built product. But (and here is where I dinged it a star) I had a shoot with very limited space and had to do some flag trickery to contain the light. So I thought I'd get a grid for it, and that's when I discovered Lasolite does not offer a grid for this product. In my eyes that keeps it from being a complete solution.

          I use this product to backlight my greenscreen backgounds. It is great for that and makes it possible to use an sb900 in place of larger strobes. The only part that is negative is the building of it everytime I move to a new location. But it does exactly what I purchased it for.

            I love it, goes togother just like the Lastolite Octa, just quicker as this only has 4 rods instead of, well 8. Beautiful, soft, enlongated light from a speedlite. I just want another one to have even, symetrical lighting coming from both sides. Great for rim lights, hair lights, even use to light products.
