        I use the product for Automotive Editorial photography, and for non-traditional environmental portraits. Easy to put together, and not to much weight on my Quadra heads. I am ordering a second one today.John Jackson[@]

          Comments about Lastolite Hotrod Strip Softbox (16 x 48"):

          It is easy to get great light from this softbox. I have been using it with my Nikon SB900s with no problems; I am waiting for the Elinchrom Quadra adapter to try it with those lights. The softbox is well-made with thick, durable materials-as one would expect from Lastolite. However, don't expect to set this up as quickly as an Exybox. It will take longer as it uses a hub and spoke frame; plan on probably five or six minutes once you get familar with the setup.

                Difficult to mount the first step, scew to tight and diiifcult to turn.

                I love all Lasolite products and have other Hotrod products - all GREAT.

                This one works well - but after being assembled, the white fabric (the front of the unit) is not taught so it wrinkles.

                Not sure this is a big deal in quality of light - but it sure is annoying.
