little fussy at the corners until you get the hang of it and the carrying case's opening is a bit narrow.

Would not recommend

I returned it because it seemed to heavy for the Orb. I felt it would weaken and or eventually break the Orb.

Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the 43" Apollo Orb:

Removing grid part way to get a flash is a pain. The need to pull down Velcro enough just to turn on flash or change settings is a pain in -

Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the 43" Apollo Orb:

This product is decent, however it's a little too heavy for the Apollo so it sags in the middle. Still works fine though.

Outstanding Addition to the Apollo Orb

By ThomJ4

from Meridian, ID

Verified Buyer

Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the 43" Apollo Orb:

Easy to install and does a wonderful job of sculpting light. I knocked the rating down one star because I still haven't figured out how to fold it back up so it will fit in the carrying bag. When I figure that out, then I'll give it five stars.

Takes your lighting to a new level. Fun to experiment with.

By Thomas

Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the 43" Apollo Orb:

Folds up neatly and fits into supplied bag. Attaches via Velcro to front of 43" Apollo Orb. Takes your lighting control to the next level. Stunning results using feathering techniques. Over a dozen new ways to control light and create more dramatic pictures. Just Google "using grids with softbox" for lots of cool ideas. I wish I would have purchased a softbox with a grid years earlier. Well worth the extra cost over standard umbrellas.

Great Grid to Control the Light

By Shutter Avenue Photography

from Sacramento, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the 43" Apollo Orb:

I have used this grid modifier with the original octabank. I love I it can control the light for not spilling out and everywhere.
It did take some time to attach it the first time because it comes with velcro yet once you do this few times it's very easy to attach it.
The only thing why I could have give it a 4 starts but didn't is I wish it could come with a pouch that you can put it away when not using it.
Overall its a great modifier and I definatly recommend it for other.

Fabric Grid for 43" Orb

By Stefan

Verified Buyer

Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the 43" Apollo Orb:

The only reason it doesn't get a five is that the construction is better than the umbrella Apollo Orb so it's a bit too heavy for the Orb I find. It's a beautiful piece though I don't think I'll use it that often.

Worst grid ever!

By Rob

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Westcott 40 Degree Fabric Grid for the 43" Apollo Orb:

Pain to setup compared to other brands. Fitment is mediocre at best, saggy and looks unprofessionsal. Cheap Materials and really not for the working pro. Save your money and go with a chimera box and lighttools grid.

The grid is built very durable and easy to attach. It comes with a carry bag and does not take up to much room. I recommend this product to anyone who is in the market for a grid. It's well worth the money.

I love the Apollo line of products that they have out. They are top of the line, easy to use, durable and worth your dollar. They help produce the best quality of light.
