        Well made, does the job. Very pricey for what they are though, like all Westcott Apollo stuff...

          Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the Apollo Strip:

          Right off the bat, I love the control Apollo's Strip box provides. This adds even more control. It produces truly beautiful rim light, and works as a dramatic main light. I have lots of plans for it, which strikes me as the mark of a good modifier. When using it, be sure to set the diffusion panel as deep into the box as possible. That will create room for the fastening strips on the grid and make it much easier to install. This grid gets 4/5 because I can't vouch for the durability yet. I have no reason to suspect it will be poor, since my Apollo products are all holding up well. It's also a little expensive, but it's a labor-instensive product, and in my opinion, worth it.

            I use this on the Westcott strip light modifier I recently purchase. Excellent a directing light.

                Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the Apollo Strip:

                The 40 degree grid gives me great light control for the Apollo strip. This attaches easily to the strip box, and folds down nicely to fit into the included storage bag.

                  Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the Apollo Strip:

                  I have become a "grid" fanatic over the last year or so. This grid makes keeping unwanted light off the background easy. I love the look of light ON the subj while keeping it off everything else.

                    I can't imagine using any soft box without having the option of a grid and this one does what it should. Light and easy to use. Even comes with a carry bag - unlike the Apollo soft box it's made for.
