    Strip Softbox with Mounting Ring - 12 x 36" is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for the job I wanted a smaller soft light to control the highlights in back/hair light, and this does that perfectly. In my small studio set up it provides ample spread and a nice non-glaring highlight on hair, shoulders and neck. The two layers of diffusion I think really help this work at close range, 4' - 8'. It's REALLY hard to get the spreaders in. I have a 36 by 48 softbox from Photogenic that is easier to put together and seems to be made to a higher quality standard. By the time I assembled this one I'd put enough strain on the seams that I was seeing some frayed threads. It doesn't look like they'll get worse. Just a bit disappointed that this one doesn't seem as well made. Then again, it's quite bit cheaper than the 36 by 48.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price I use this strip softbox as a hair light. It's a great little softbox for the price. It did take me a little too long to put together but that could just be me! I would definitely buy a Photogenic Softbox again.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Portable Size! I used this with my photogenic studio max III lights. It's much more compact than the octogon softbox I currently have. I also liked the mounting ring that came with it! Works great!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great price As others have stated before. The box rods are extremely tight and if inserted correctly then you won't get them out for tear-down. But I have found if you flip one rod around and insert it upside down the box can be disabled in minutes rather easily. I think overall the box quality is a typical build for China. The rods are about an 1/8 inch too long. The speedring included is aluminum and of a good build. Double diffuser is great. I've been using soft boxes for well over a decade and this box quality is not what I would expect for a professional. This would be perfectly fine if you plan to set it up in the camera room and leave it set up, but do not plan on ever taking it on location and using the carry case that comes with it because you will break the strip on disasembly. 5 out of 10 based on price, build quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY TO USE!!! Easy to set up, mount, dismount and break down! Setting up most soft boxes is like wrestling a greased pig . . . this strip light in stark contrast is a joy to use! I tested it last night with my Photogenic PL2500 monolight - metered with my Sekonic flash meter (1,000 watt/seconds - 100ISO, without the inner diffuser): f45 @ 3 feet, f22 @ 6 feet, f11 1/2 @ 10 feet, f11 @ 12 feet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mini Boom Stand for my hair light! I attach this mini boom stand to my Alien Bee Light Stand so I can hang my hair light (with soft box) over my collapsible background. It's a great product and can hold the weight of a light with a soft box. The counter weight at the end of the boom comforts me that my light won't tip over! I would purchase this product again and recommend this to someone else.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good light modifier I purchased one of these many years ago... although adequate, I don't think the build quality is quite as good as my original one. The fasteners of the inner diffusion panel hook now, rather than fasten, and the outer material almost has a little sheen to it. The light quality is still good, I just wish it looked the same.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value !! This a great value for this product. It works just as well as comparable units that cost $ 350 +. You could buy 3 of these as compared to the cost 1 of other brands. Built as sturdy or better as other brands. Highly recommend this soffbox !
