Soften the quality of light and tame the contrast of your flash or strobe unit with this 9 x 36" Super Pro X Plus Stripbank from Chimera The lightbank features a soft silver interior that maximizes output while minimizing the harshness evidenced in some softboxes with reflective silver interiors. The long, narrow shape of the lightbank makes it ideal for edge lighting or for use as a hairlight, while it creates long, elegant catchlights in reflective objects such as glassware. The Super Pro X Plus also offers a removable "full" front diffuser that can be replaced with optional 1/4 and 1/2 versions for contrast options, while the removable inner baffle subdues the hot spot and exhibits performance with edge to edge evenness. You can use the front diffuser and baffle together, in any combination, or not at all to achieve the look you'd like for your subject. Part of a system, the lightbank accepts optional modifiers that include fabric and metal honeycomb grids, as well as fabric barndoors.

Chimera Super Pro X Plus Small Reviews
Great quality as expected
No light leaks, good quality and thick material. One small thought is that the inner baffle sits further along the softbox than expected ( i.e. it seems quite close to the outer baffle). Wish the accompanying grid wasn't so expensive - costs almost as much as this lightbank.
Very nice for smaller and dramatic light
Got the grid for it. Nice when there isn't much room or want to light smaller areas of the subject.
An industry standard. A must have item. I have had mine for 25years, got this one for my asst as an xmas bonus. My old one has lasted without fail, why buy anything else?
A good value as always.....
I bought this to use for head shots and clam shell lighting. While it seems popular to use a small strip bank as the lower light for this lighting set up,....I much prefer the smaller, shorter small box and this one does a incredible job of knocking down the shadows, giving an extra measure of control by not totally obliterating the shadows. And as always....Chimera makes a great product that lasts for many, many years. Highly recommended!!!
Great for portrait work.
Absolutely improved and I love it...
This much lighter and easier to use strip box. The guide inside for the rods are really deep so it make impossible for the rods to get out. material snuggle around the light perfectly. Great quality very robust. :)
Delivers what it promises..
...as have the other Chimeras I've bought
small is mighty
love it - no hot spots - no color cast- worth the extra $
