Its small form factor makes it a valuable tool no matter what size your shooting space is. As indicated in the name, the softbox has a basic ring to hold it together, but instead of full speedrings, 13 "inserts" are available for a speedlight or 12 different brands of strobes. The quick release thumb-lock on the Rapid Box Switch ensures the security of your light. Besides the benefit of speed, the softbox is structurally sound with durable metal framework, heat-resistant fabric, and a reflective silver interior that maximizes your light source's output. The Rapid Box Switch Strip Softbox's diffusion material has also been thoroughly tested and found to be neutral, ensuring a true rendition of color. A carry case is included for storage and transport. So, if you need a well-made softbox designed for versatility - switch!

question

Will this only work for Speedlights or can I use this with my Alien Bees Strobe?
Asked by: David
This Rapid Box Strip is designed for use with a single speedlight. The Rapid Box Strip that works with Studio strobes is the XL strip. These XL units have a built in speedring so order an XL strip with the Balcar, Alien Bees mount. For a Westcott strip that will work with both your Alien Bee and a speedlight, consider the Apollo Strip. All these strip units have an optional grid.
