    I use this with an ARRI 650 Fresnel and it almost to heavy to hold it upright but it creates beautiful diffused light.

    Comments about Westcott Softbox, Silver Interior - 36x48":

    Extremely well made and a bargain for hot-light capable (1000 watts maximum) softboxes. This unit was constructed of high grade materials and was very well assembled (sewn), with all seams and structural pole pockets well placed for putting unit up and seemingly very sturdily constructed. Only negatives are that it is heavy - perhaps inevitable considering its sturdiness and steel poles - a little difficult to put together at first, and that the price of its accessories is quite high, somewhat making up for its comparatively low initial price.

      Comments about Westcott Softbox, Silver Interior - 36x48":

      This softbox performs as advertised. Using it with the #3502 speedring for mounting on a Bowens light. Solid construction, however if there's anything that could be improved, it would have to be the carrying bag the softbox comes in with. The metal rods awkwardly fit in the bag, the carrying handle should perhaps had been designed as a shoulder handle. Still 5 stars.

        Well made product. I just bought this softbox and I'm very pleased. It produces the exact same results as more expensive brands.

          Good construction, very durable. Comes in a carying bag for easy travel once your speedring is removed. I would definitely recommend it!

            I love the Westcott Spiderlite line. I use it for my on-site studio and while it is a bit of work to set things up, it gives me the quality of light I need. I have 2 Spiderlite 5 (48 x 36" and 36 x 24"), a Spiderlite 3 hair light (36 x 12" with a 40 degree grid), and use Nikon CLS speedlights for accents. The large softbox gives me great depth of light at 7'.

              This is my first Westcott soft box, but so far I'm very happy with it. Seems like it is built well, I'm hoping it will last me a long time. I've use Photoflex in the past, and they've been ok, but thought I'd try something different.
              It sets up and takes down easily,

                I am a professional sport and event photographer. I was introduced to Wescott softboxes by a co-photographer. The quality and construction of the softboxes is superior to many other brands. It is easy to set-up and the steel rods are durable and will last through many shoots. I highly recommend the Wescott Softboxes.[@]
