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!

        I got this strap to use with a LumiQuest ProMax 80-20 System. It's wider than the LumiQuest strap, and does a better job of gripping my Canon Speedlite 430EX II flash.

          Comments about Honl Photo Speed Strap for Speed System:

          This speed strap is practically essential for use with the Honl grids. I have a 1/4 and a 1/8 grid, and I can use this strap attached to my speedlight to attach both grids.

          I have no complaints about this strap, except for the fact that it seems crazy to me that this is a separate piece. In my opinion, it should be included with the grids.

                    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.

                                        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.

                                          I use this on Canon 600EX-RT Speedlites with the Honl Speed Grids and color correction gels. It makes it a lot easier to secure those accessories.

                                              I bought this to attach gels to my flash.It has a more grippy surface than regular velcro

                                              Pricy but definitely helps me keep my speedlites clean (no need to tape filters to it) and professional looking.

                                                  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.
