          I've just started using the Gary Fong Lightsphere, both the Universal and the Collapsible. I purchased the replacement items just in case.

                Comments about Gary Fong Universal Mounting Kit for WhaleTail, Origami & Lightsphere-Universal:

                I bought my Fong diffuser used and it didn't come with a mount kit. For the last couple of years I have just been using random rubber bands to keep it on, not the most aesthetic solution... especially in front of clients.

                I had a credit on my account that was going to expire. This purchase was a way to use it up. I haven't used the rubber bands, but I am really happy so far with the velcro strap. I can't believe it took me this long to get. I definitely won't go without it again!

                I think the price is somewhat fair, not a steal by any means, but fair. I would rather the kit came with two velcro straps and less rubber bands, which is why I gave it 4 stars.

                I have these for a backup for my Gary Fong Lightspere diffuser. Simple product - Simple great results - does what it does, keeps my lightsphere on my Canon 580ex II!!

                A little pricy for a few rubber bands and a velcro strap though!

                THE RUBBER BANDS ARE A NEEDED PRODUCT TO HOLD THE SPHERE,THE PRBLM IS THAT IT'S MADE OF RUBBER,IT BREAKS EASILY AFTER A FEW USAGE,GARY NEEDS TO INVENT SOMETHING STRONGER!! POSSIBLY A CLAMP OF SOMETYPE.

                    After time thing wear out. Its nice to know you can replace them when they do. This set works as the original did as well as offering a few extra rubber bands. They are nice to have in the bag...Just in case!

                        A little expensive for a few rubber bands and some velcro but it works.

                        I use these to help mounting my Lumiquest products to my flash head. I also find it useful to mount my Better Beamer flash extender.

                        Nice soft rubber with the elastics, seems like it will last a while...
