Speed Ring for Strip Bank & Octa Bank for Bowens is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from No frills speeding that works well This speeding is moderately well built for the price, but it certainly doesn't have a high end feel. I bought this speeding because it was one of the few for Bowens that supports strips and octaboxes without having to get separate adapters and rings costing much more. The rotation is pretty rough and it doesn't seem to be possible to make it any smoother/easier. There are nuts that would be expected to adjust the force required to rotate, but it seems that the mating surfaces are just very high friction to begin with. Another small issue is that there are no chamfers on the holes for the rods. In practice, the soft boxes I've used assembled without issue, but having some chamfers does help guide the rods into place. Although this product isn't particularly impressive, it does perform as expected and serves my needs perfectly (i.e. supports square/rectangular soft boxes, strip banks, and octaboxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Solved a Major Problem I use Calumet Travelites and own both Calumet and Westcott softboxes. One problem I have had is with the Calumet extra large soft box. When mounted on the Travelite, its weight overbalances the light head and causes the whole shebang to tip over. Using this speed ring and the adapter that is available to screw onto it enables the speed ring and mounted softbox to sustain the weight of the box, avoiding the extra torque that otherwise would prevent me from using the extra large soft box safely.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works fine but not perfect I bought this to go with the Bowens Octa. It works for that but not great. It keeps the big octa in place on the flash but won't lock in (at least no click) and it seems like the metal used is cheaper quality than what Bowens makes (though the Bowens speed ring won't work for the octa). Still, i don't know of any other options for the Wescott octa on a bowens strobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I initially bought a kit from westcott. Its called photobasics. The rings that come with the kit have very small holes. I then bought 2 softboxes, and the rods that came with those wouldn't fit in the photobasics ring. I bought this one and it works great. Its says for bowens, but I guess westcott and bowens have the same strobe ring format

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works as advertised not much to say, works as advertised and is solidly built..the rotation is a bit tight, aven after loosening the set screws all the way. if it were less expensive it would have received 4 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly My soft boxes are extremely easy to assemble and disassemble. I have no jammed rods, which has been a problem for me - during both assembly and disassemble. The process is just SMOOTH.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs as advertised I'm using this ring with a 36x48 softbox. Construction feels solid and durable. I found it difficult to mount the ring and softbox onto the light; the box is just large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from exactly like bowens looks exactly like the bowens brand. I can't tell the difference. Buy this one and save a few bucks.
