Not the best option

I ordered two and immediately broke one while trying to install on a large soft box. Should have used an assistant I guess. Will not work on rectangular boxes because they only have four slots for the rods. Made of a cheap composite which is not nearly as durable as aluminum like my strobe speed rings. There are better options for lower prices. I do not recommend these.

Its a really strong speed ring for the Arri 650w that spins really easily.Unfortunately for the price they are selling it for it should come with a free steak.

Speed rings and soft boxes are now as common as gels and frames were over the past several decades. Every kit going into the field should have a speed ring for every light as standard gear.

Awesome SoftBox!

I have several of these boxes including an F2 10x15, down to an XXS Super Pro Plus. These boxes are very well made and last a long time with superior color quality. I use this box specifically for portraits and groups.

Works like magic!

If fits the Arri light very well. With a Medium box on the arri however the light tilts down, I am still trying to figure out a way to solve thing. The speedring is very well made.

how does this attach to a Chimera Pro Small?

how does this attach to a Chimera Pro Small?
Asked by: Bill
The Chimera Pro Small is a 4 pole softbox and the ARRI Speed Ring for 650W Fresnel allows each pole to fit in each corner. It just slides in.

Will this also fit an Altman 650L?
Asked by: Matthew D.
I bought this for an Arri 650 watt fresnel. If that Altman has the same build and fit Arri then it should work. I wouldn't know if they are the same fit and build though. Check with B&H.
