    Rapid Box Octa XL for Bowens (36") is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy- Great Diffusion= Awesome! This Wescott Octobox is a no brainer. It pops open with ease, snap in diffusion and with 2 minutes it is ready to go. I am a one woman band shooting video - mainly interviews - so a good keylight with an easy set up, portable, nice soft diffusion is a must and this dome delivers on all marks!!! I also got the deflector plate which spreads the light around the face so there are no hot spots. I recently purchased a Aputure LED video light with Bowens mount� and was looking for a good diffusion. Aputure has an amazing light but their dome option is less than user friendly with 16 rods to put together!!! Pay the extra $100 and get this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent We purchased this mainly for use on location when doing corporate type people shots, head shots and the like. Using it with our Bowens Gemini lights. Haven't worked with soft boxes before at all, have always used umbrellas, but have definitely noticed the difference as compared to using umbrellas (which sort of throw light all over the place). The Octa is easy to put up, it takes only a minute or so, just a little bit longer than sticking an umbrella on to your light. The quality of the box seems very durable, setting uptakes no more than taking it out of its bag, undo the front velcroed bit, push and lock it into position and a gentle twist of the speed ring onto the light. Very happy after the three or four shoots we have used the octa on so far, hard to explain, soft light but still sharp shots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and convenient I've just received this unit and opened / closed it a few times. �Feels extremely solid for an "umbrella" style soft box. � I like how the optional dish fits in place solidly. � I'm so impressed with this piece that I went ahead and ordered three of the rectangular units. �I plan to use them for travel and any offsite shoots, and if I did not already own stationary studio soft boxes I would use them as well for that purpose.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I have used softboxes for many years and some of them have been easier to use than others. About a year ago I purchased my first Aputure 120D light, excited to start using softboxes with a continuous LED for video. I bought the Aputure Light Dome and was shocked to see that it had 16 rods that it needed manually installed each time to put together the octabox. I quickly returned it and searched for the right solution. This Rapid Box is definitely more expense, but the amount of time and pain it saves setting it up and taking it down each time is incredible! I highly recommend buying one of these!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Softbox! I really like my Rapid Box Octa XL. I've had it for several years and I use it both in studio and on location. It's fast and easy to set up and tear down. The only drawback is Westcott is not making available other speedrings like they did when it first came out. I've switched to Profoto and I can't change the speedring as the diameter of the flange is custom.
