I'm keeping it because it does the job, and looks professional when I get it out, but it feels more like an intermediate prototype which was rushed to market rather than a well designed and field tested product.
But I've got a gripe with it, which is that it does a lousy job of staying in place. The fabric is thick but still pretty floppy, and for many of my shots, it's fallen over (from vertical), or collapsed on itself. I think it could really use to be made of stiffer fabric, and/or have more stiffening around the edges. There is some, but not much. Also, more velcro around the edges would help it stay rigidly on the flash better. As it is, there's just a few points of contact of velcro, and that adds to its floppiness. I've beefed it up with more velcro myself (a bunch of dots of the self-adhesive stuff) but for $30, they should make it right.
Another minor issue: I think the interior should be made of white fabric, not the silver/grey that it is. All the grey does is absorb light, and the purpose of a reflector is to reflect it. A lighter color would allow for more shots on a charge of the batteries.
While some have criticized the cost of David Honl's products, I find his prices more than fair when compared with the quality of the products. Along with this, I've purchased the speed strap and a flag/barn door, and am actually waiting for delivery on some Honl Grid attachments that I just ordered from Adorama. I plan to buy even more of his products in the future.
Instead of the Honl, I can recommend the Rogue Flashbender, which has much stiffer material and has a snug fit to the flash.
The title says it all - these doodads are durable and easy to use. Yeah, they're $20, and that will buy a lot of duct tape to skin the cardboard for a home made job, but I save the home made stuff for custom shapes: this (and the 5") are great tools, always in the bag, and in constant use.
Construction is top notch, the exterior is black woven vinyl (the same type of material used for camera cases), the interior is a silver gray rip stop nylon. In the simplest sense, this is just a rectangle of material with stiff piping around the edge and Velcro. The simplicity is what makes this such genius.
A speed strap is required to attach this to a flash (HonlPhoto Speed Strap for Shoe Mount Flashes). In theory it's possible to attach gummy Velcro to the flash head, on an inexpensive flash that might be a good idea. But for expensive flashes, this is a poor place to save money.
This is a fabulous device in snoot mode. The Velcro bands are in exactly the right place to allow different size rolling and tightness. Turned around and attached to the head as shown in the product picture, this makes a much better bounce reflector than the LumiQuest line. For about the same price, the Honl device is much more versatile.
Snoots are a wonderful tool for flash photography; they help direct light exactly where it is needed. A snoot is most useful with the flash off camera and in manual mode.
This is a great addition to my tool kit of flash accessories.

Wow. Talk about your dishonest advertising. I have a Canon Speedlite and the snoot is too big. The 2 sides of the velcro completely overlap and don't even touch when you wrap it... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Susan
Works ok but when opened up to bounce light off of, it won't stay open. I saw a similar product (Rogue I think) that had a built in wire that helped it hold its shape when opened... Read morePublished 7 months ago by H. Lee Dawson

Simple but effective way to enlarge one's light source when using speedlights. Results are not much different from a small softbox.Published on June 5, 2013 by Amo
