    I wanted this disk for use with my Mola Demi. I couldn't be happier. Having the disk attached smooths out the center spot and enhances Mola's already stellar light quality. I just wish they weren't so hard to get!(4 stars) I should have ordered two. One for now and one for when I get my next Mola, so I'm not waiting forever. One other thing. THESE ARE GLASS! If you travel with your Mola's, I would highly recommend a good case. I also attach my grid to the front of my Demi to protect the diffusion disk. Mola recommends removing the disk when traveling, but it's kind of a pain putting it back on. Besides, regular removal only heightens the chance you'll break it when reattaching it.

      use it with Elinchrom tubes since they are not coated with any diffusion.

      A Mola Must-Have

      By Hecky

      from Aliso Viejo, CA

      Comments about Mola Opal Diffusion Glass (7.125"):

      If you shoot with flash heads or mono lights without frosted glass domes, this is a great addition to your beauty dish. Especially if you let the light fall on your background. I use it stacked on top of their stock PAD.

      Adds a softer touch to the Mola. I don't plan on removing it. It's glass so it's breakable, but as long as you are careful installing it there is no problem.

      Comments about Mola Opal Diffusion Glass (7.125"):

      It is not a must have accessory. However, it gives you a lighting option for how stronger hot spot do you want. It might be more than optional if your strobe does not have a frosted glass. If it does (like Profoto or PCB Einstein) and if you diminish or your hot spot disappear (like it does with a conventional beauty dish) keep it in the front of the deflector.The beuty of Mola is that it gives you options in terms of lighting. And, the opal glass is one of them. Another positive attribute is that it does this without changing the colour temperature.I did not test if it is breakable easily. I hope not : )

                The opal glass smooths and softens the light, its now almost permanently attached to my Euro. The stabilizing ring is a must have.

                Hint : once the clips are installed you can easily swap to the PAD. Just unbend one of the clips, slide the glass out and slide the PAD in to replace it. This takes about 10 seconds...

                I actually like the results produced by the Mola Demi with the stock P.A.D. in place. However, I view the opal diffusion glass as the "icing on the cake." The cake's great on its own, but the icing tops it off quite nicely.

                The diffusion glass reduces the hot spot in the center and creates a more even core of light. It's kind of a pain to install (as you have to disassemble the complete P.A.D., but once it's on, you'll probably never want to take it off.

                  The included PAD is OK, but the opal glass insures a nice, clean disbursment of light with no "hot" spots! Should've been included with the original purchase...but there you go...more $$ if you want what you want! Not totally necessary! But I thought it was worth the expense, given the difference in light quality! You may think differently!

                      The addition of this opal glass made my Demi perfectly smooth, no more hot spot in the center from the OEM supplied perforated aluminum disc. It's not cheap, but it's real glass and worth every penny.
