Great strap for flash or anything about the size of a flashhead. I hate to put permanent Velcro on any of my four Canon 580 EXII flashes. Now I can put Velcro on just one flash or change it to another or take it off completely. The strap stays in place. How can something so simple be worth so much to me. It works! No messing around! It just plain works great!

            Excellent for Velcro-attaching light modifiers to speedlight flashes without adhesives. Easily transferred from one flash to another. Wider and sturdier than others on the market.

                      I use the Honl grids along with this accompanying accessory strap on so many photo shoots. This is a great product line. The strap is well make, very sturdy.

                      I like this and the rest of the Honl line of lift modifiers. They are portable and easy to add to one's tools without adding additional weight to what you are carrying. The quality of the light produced in these products is beautiful.

                          Using it on my Canon 580EX, it fits perfect. Using it for some Honl gels and also for a Vello Grid. No complaints.

                                Great product. Works as designed when using flash gels, and I also use it to attach Pocket Wizards, and other flash accessroies. I really like the fact that I can attach accessries without adhesive backed materials that leave sticky residue on the flash head. Many uses for this strap. I own several of them, and play to buy a few backups.

                                        Great strap, holds filters, snoot and grids very well.

                                          I haven't yet found a better way to attach modifiers to speedlites without gaffer tape. Beats other brands of straps hands down. Easy to use.

                                            I use the speed strap for color correction on my 580 speedlites. I did not wont any sticky hook and loop on the strobes and this was a great product that is simple to use.

                                              I bought this to work with Honl snoots/reflectors. It works fine for just about any velcro attached flash accessory.

                                              It's a little thick, but it's sturdy and does the job.

                                              If you buy regular velcro to save some money it twist around the flash. It will drive you crazy and if you do this for a living it looks unprofessional.
