Westcott Speed Ring for Balcar Reviews

lose fit

second try to post my review.This was recommended by Westcott,B&H to fit the alien b 800. put it on a big Westcott soft box and when I picked it up the ring pulled off the mono light. I had to make a spacer washer and I drilled a hole in the ring to put a 1/4 inch long bolt through it and through the umbrella holder on the light to make it secure. NO choice but to buy it again and modify it to fit as there is nothing else out there.

Does what it's suppose to do.

I have Westcott TD6 cont. Lights and Alien Bees Strobes. The Westcott softbox quality is better than AB. This ring allows me to use the box with both kits! Love it. I just find the ring a bit on the expensive side but its good quality and worth it (cheaper than buying a box). Would recommend to any users that want to use the great Westcott soft boxes with other brands lights/strobes.

I originally bought this to accompany our Bruce Dorn Select Asymetrical Strip Bank. It also has slots for our standard soft boxes and is quite versatile. Westcott makes great products.

I bought this to use with a Paul C. Buff Einstein e640. Works perfectly.

See any errors on this page? Let us know



How does the tilt adaptor that comes with the 7' Octabank attached to this speed light? I don't see any holes for it to screw thru? Thank you!
Asked by: Netasha R.
Easy...The rods that come with this attachment fit into the grooves after fitting through the softbox. It takes a bit of bending but works. Be careful there are two different sizes on the rods.....

Is this the adapter I buy so that my Einstein E640 lights can be used with any of my Westcott softboxes?
