Great Value!

Fits perfectly into my Elinchrom 7" reflectors, and same quality construction as the more expensive Elinchrom grids. I'll be buying more of these in the future.

works well. mount not good on Impact

Did well once I modified with Velcro. Funny that they both are Impact. The problem is with the Impact reflectors. They are slightly concave on the rim and it forces the grid out.

            Product works as specified. Gives more control over the lighting and allows for more focused light.
            The only reason it is not 5 stars is because it is such tight fit into the 7" Impact reflectors. The clip on top would be better it is were turned 90 degrees to simply clip on. Instead, it compresses into the reflector for Super tight fit which is not necessary. Other than that, works perfect!!

                  It's a grid at a reasonable price. That's about all I can say. Focuses the light where you want it. Doesn't cost a fortune.

                    I bought this grid along with the 10, 30, and 40 degree ones to use on my Elinchrom Ranger Quadra heads (Impact is much cheaper than the Elinchrom grids!). Not much to say except it works well to narrow the beam of light for creative, artistic lighting.

                        I use it on a 300w/s monolight for separation. Sometimes pointed at the background, sometimes as a hair light. Works great.

                            These grids work just as they should! Fits securely into the 7" reflector of my Alien Bee. It has a label that also serves as a tab to remove it from the reflector without having to touch the grid itself so that may make it last longer.

                              a 20 degree grid is a 20 degree grid. Can't see spending $20 more per grid for the brand name when these work exactly the same.
