I like that I have 2 positions to mount the flash. It is very comfortable to hand hold either an umbrella or a soft box. I can choose to shoot through an umbrella or turn it around and bounce the flash into the umbrella. I also mounted a quick connect tripod mount on the bottom of this unit and installed a ball head on one of my light stands. That allows me to put this unit on a stand and position it in any direction I want. The light stand allows me to put it fairly high as well. I love it!!!

flash shoe screws loosen and fall out while in camera bag - this is annoying and time consuming while you're looking for the screws and top plate to hold the flash

        Comments about Westcott Speedlite ProGrip:

        I bought this to use during receptions... I often found myself just hold my speedlight off camera anyway, so I figured that I give this grip a shot. It really does make it easier to hold the flash off camera. I haven't connected it to a light stand (nor do I intend to), but I suppose it's better to have the option than not. Umbrellas fit nicely although I have used it with a large Rogue Flashbender far more as it would be too unwieldy to handle while shooting at a reception unless you have your assistant hold it. Overall, it's nice and light, but I wouldn't mind sacrificing a few ounces if it were made a more robust material.

        Comments about Westcott Speedlite ProGrip:

        I got this to use with various light modifiers in my left hand as I moved around events and shot with my right hand. When I added transceiver, flash and modifier it got cumbersome and also blocked my vision. Perhaps for an assistant with 2 free hands it can be a nimble tool!

        This came in handy with the Bolt Vb-22 flash. I mounted the yn-622 receiver and flash to the grip on top of a light stand. Great product

        Almost Perfect

        Comments about Westcott Speedlite ProGrip:

        I do like that idea of being able to mount my flash and pocket wizard on the same easy to hold handle. Its a no brainer when you ask someone to act as lightstand. However, when mounted on a ligthstand through the brass nut on the bottom of the handle, there is play from side to side that makes it feel just shy of quality. The brass nut is not seated properly. Tight should be tight with no play. Other than that its good enough.

            Better than a lightstand when you need that little pop of light outside. Will use it for wedding with my little softbox.
