I have several Chimera speed rings and modifiers. They are dependable and durable. Some people have questioned the durability of the polycarbonate but I have never had an issue with them. Great product.

Solid! Good design.

Very sturdy even for a large soft box. It comes with an Allen wrench to loosen the metal ring (very helpful if you want to rotate your soft box after it's mounted on the flash head.

Just right

This was exactly what I needed for a used softbox I got from a friend. Works perfectly.

Good fit, light weight

I purchased this to use with my Dynalite B4s and medium (36 x 48) Chimera softbox. At the suggest of a B&H staffer, I originally purchased the Impact speed ring for Bowens (IMSRIMP). While the Impact speed ring did work, the holes for inserting the rods of the softbox were smaller than the ones Chimera uses which made setting up the softbox a real chore. This speed ring makes setup a breeze.

Asked by: Michael
While B&H does not carry the Flashpoint XPLOR 600 HSS TTL Battery-Powered Monolight (though it is a re-branded version of the Godox AD600B Witstro TTL All-In-One Outdoor Flash, B&H # GOAD600B, which we do carry), the Flashpoint XPLOR 600 HSS TTL Battery-Powered Monolight uses the Bowens S-mount speedring. As such, yes, the Chimera Speed Ring for Bowens Esprit II, Esprit DX, Small Series, Calumet Series II, B&H # CHSRBPL, would be compatible for use with the Flashpoint XPLOR 600 HSS TTL Battery-Powered Monolight.
