    I bought this deflector plate along with the Westcott Rapid Box - 26 Octa Softbox, based on recommendations in Rapid Box reviews. It attaches quickly to the screw post on the spreader hub and is very solid, like the Rapid Box itself. This deflector does noticeably soften the light from the softbox, but at the cost of flash power/range. As other reviews have state it does tuck nicely into the Rapid Box case, and you can leave the screw in the post when folding up the umbrella to avoid losing it.This product is well made and works as advertised, but I'm giving it 4 stars because 1) it's overpriced for a small metal plate with a single screw, and 2) it should be included with the ~$200 Rapid Box. That said, if you want to turn a Westcott soft box into a "beauty dish" this is an effective solution.

    It should be included with Rapid Box in first place. It definitely doesn't worst money they charging for it, because it simply is a highway robbery!
    But... it is a must have piece if you have Rapid Box, because it is part that turns Rapid Box into portable foldable beauty dish - the sole and only reason to actually buy Rapid Box in first place.

                        this is my 3rd soft box that i use on location. And, BY FAR, this is the most durable. It's extremely easy to setup. the light source is beautiful and the great advantage is that you could use it as a beauty dish as well. It's a bit on the pricey side, but well worth the money. I give it an easy 2 thumbs up and a 5 star rating!

                          The Good:
                          Nice plate to distribute light inside the RapidBox.
                          Awesome customer service from Westcott (lost my screw and they sent a new one).

                          The Bad:
                          Lost the screw on day one... it should be glued into the plate..which is exactly what I did after i got a replacement. Do it ! it will save you looking for a replacement screw. This should have come with the Rapid box instead of being a separate item.

                                        I use it with the Westcott Rapid Box - 20 Octa Mini Softbox and love every second. Beauty Dish effect is my favorite. It could be a bit cheaper thou.

                                            Prevents hot spots and unwanted specular highlights. This should come with all Rapid Boxes.

                                            Works as described. Definitely creates a softer lighting pattern. For my tastes, I prefer the effects of using without the diffusion cover on the front of the soft box. It's a needed accessory but should have been included with the soft box.

                                              If you are ordering a Rapid Box order this Deflector Plate, it is a must have accessory. Without the deflector plate the Rapid Box is just a so so soft box. The Deflector Plate turns it into an outstanding light modifier.
