    S-type Adapter for Bowens and Wafer Softboxes is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fitting on xplor 600 Like some of the others, this would not fit on my strobe. I purchased mine from a Canadian supplier. It's labelled as a Strobepro but is the same light as the xplor, etc.. This adapter fit perfectly on my Paul C. Buff octobox, but would not fit on my strobe until I did some filing on the 3 posts. In case, like me, you're not immediately sure which side to file down, I'll describe it here. The 3 posts are shaped like pieces of bread. The part that needs to be filed down is the 'top of the bread - the rounded part'. When finished it should look like the 3 posts on your xplor light cover, which are square shaped. Do the filing a little at a time and keep trying it til it snugly snaps into place. You can see where I filed it in the attached pic.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from PRODUCT DID NOT FIT MY STROBE hello there, I bought this product to use it with my Flashpoint xplor 600 since i got the bowens mount on it. Unfortunatelly this particular adapter did not fit my monolight. the size of the pins were not right so had to return it back to b and h after i have been waiting for the product to be back in stock, was waiting at least two weeks. I dont say that the product is defective, however dont try to use it with Flashpoint units!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product For all Flashpoint xplor 600 users. The product doesn't right out of the box (the 3 pins) The 3 pins are a little bit too tall. What I did was used a metal filer to remove the excess metal. Now it fit's perfectly. Good strong product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great adapter to leverage PCB softboxes I'm using these on Paul C Buff softboxes to replace the PCB/Balcar ring. Simple replacement - just unscrew the 4 thumbscrews on the back of the softbox, pull out the Balcar ring and put in this S-type adapter. Fits perfectly, if a little snug. The only issue is the snug fit makes it a bit more difficult to rotate the softbox. You'll need to either loosen the thumbscrews, or if you're using a boom, loosen the boom arm. Great way to leverage your PCB softbox investments on Bowens mount devices. There's a great little Bowen's S mount speedlite mount available that, with this adapter, lets me use the softboxes with speedlights in addition to non-PCB strobes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to convert Buff/Alien Bees softboxes - one caveat I converted from the Buff / Alien Bees / Einstein system to a Bowens based system and wanted to keep one of my softboxes. There are some in-between adapters but they will recess the flash tube way more than I'd like. I looked for a Bowens compatible speedring that would fit exactly where the Buff softbox's Balcar ring goes - using the four thumb screws. Most of these rings however have a larger diameter and don't fit. This one does! One caveat though: The Bowens mount is a non-rotating mount. To rotate the soft box you need to loosen the four thumb screws wich is not the best solution, especially with heavier softboxes. If you use your softbox a lot, get yourself a fully Bowens compatible one!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works but has to be grinded down. I was a PCB user for many years. Recently I switched over to Flashpoint Explorer 600. I wanted an adapter that I could use all my PCB light modifiers. This works BUT you have to grind it down 1/32 becuase it will not fit my Explorer right out of the box. Why I have to go through all this just for a adapter is beyond me, but there you have it... It works but..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PCB to Bowen Conversion This product is excellent of you wish to use your Paul C Buff light modifiers with your bowens adapter lighting equipment. Firstly remove the screws that holds in the PCB wafer adapter and replace with this bowens adapter.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fit Godox Witstro AD600 (XPLOR 600) Did not fit on my XPLOR 600 Bowens mount. Very disappointed because every other adapter I've used, including Bowens to Elinchrom, fit perfectly.
