Comments about Elinchrom 13x69" Striplite Softbox:

Setup is very easy. Simply open the strip-bank like an umbrella, mount it on a light stand, mount a head inside the bank, then put the white diffuser over the front. That's it. Simple. Teardown and storage is very easy too. I also own the small and medium Elinchrom banks and find them more difficult to setup and take down. THe quality of light is absolutely perfect. Why didn't I buy this many years ago? The coverage is extremely even with beautiful gradations. Absolutely the best! In comparison, my medium and small banks have a very noticeable center hotspot. I use this with an 600rx head mounted inside. Just to give an idea, from 4 feet at ISO 100 I can get about F4-f5.6 at minimum power and around F22 at maximum power. That's unscientific but it should still give a "ballpark" idea of power requirements. A 300 or 600 ws Elinchrom head should work fine on a tight set...and a larger set might require 1200 ws or more to be comfortable. Overall, the build quality is very good but the light stand tilt/mount can be a little clumsy. Sometimes it feels "soft" and I worry about it tipping. That's my only complaint. [...]
