    RFi Octa Softbox (4') is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I had purchased this 4' softbox earlier The RFI Octa softbox provided an extremely soft wrap around lighting and provided nice catch lights.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this but cannot disassemble I absolutely live the light produced, quality, etc. assembly was stiff but because I'm familiar with Octa boxes, I muscled through easy enough. I used it for several days with great excitement and then I went to disassemble for a location shoot and to my great surprise I COULD PULL THE RODS OUT OF THE SPEEDRING! Luckily, my client needed to reschedule but I'm still baffled! I can't find any suggestions to fix or prevent in future.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid Softbox but... The build quality of the softbox itself is very good. However, the rods were a different story. The metals pieces that attach to the speedring fell off on two of the rods, before I even had a chance to put it together (unboxing). Whatever adhesive they used is not very good. So, now I need to either get them replaced or find a comparable adhesive to keep them on the rods. Either way, I expected more for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great octa Heavy duty, well built. Like all Profoto gear, expensive (hence 4 stars), but for a working photographer who needs dependable gear, it's a worthwhile investment. Quality of light is what you would expect from any 4' soft box with internal baffle. It's big and beautiful, can be a key or fill, but not the only tool in the kit. If you are having trouble setting it up, you need more practice. Start with smaller soft boxes. The technique is the same. You also need to set it up and break it down often. Don't leave it set up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light bank tough to use with Profoto Ring Love this lightbank. Lovely feel to the light, size can be more manageable than the Elinchrom Octa. Only issue is that it is insanely tight when the profoto ring is attached. Its nearly hard to put the stays into the ring and darn near impossible to get the stays out. Practically broke my hand doing it and I'm used to some difficult rings.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Difficult to take apart Not happy about this one. Its not easy to take apart and move around. There are a lot easier soft boxes on the market with great quality as well. I would have returned this if I didn't throw out the box.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not A Simple Softbox... Although the soft box is vey sturdy, it is extremely difficult to take apart. The rods get stuck and it take two people to take this apart. I would not bother with this one...
