I admit I bit off more then I can chew. The 43 inch triangle grip reflectors are just too big. I would go with the smaller units if I purchased again. The quality of the product so far (2 shoots 1 in wind) has been great. I have not found anything that would make me think the product would fail. Having the sleeve and being able to go blackout or gold to warm up a shot is amazing. I would say this product is very comparable to the Lastolite TriGrip that costs considerable more and do not include sleeves. Again if I was purchasing again I would go to the smaller size format. Below is a photo being warmed up with the gold side for fill of the face. Great product I will most like purchase the smaller units as well.
The grips contain screw holds to mount on light stands. The handles can not hold a horizontal placement of the 43" triangle grips. Both of mine busted open in this position. I used 8 tie-wraps to reinforce the handles this seemed to work but I still needed to put a stand under the reflectors to hold them better. If you are using a HLS (Human Light Stand) they can support the form better. I took off 2 stars because they broke in zero wind.
