I like this box
on September 10, 2014
I like this box. It's definitely very fast to setup and break down, but once in a while, like the another reviewer has mentioned, a few of these rods would not collapse correction when you engage the release mechanism on the back of the unit.
I use it mainly with the Godox Wistro AD360, and the quality of light from this combo is very pleasing. However, the fiberglass rods are not very durable. I broke 6 of mine after using this softbox for about 10 sessions. The good thing is that the box came with two extra rods, and the authorized distributor is quite responsive and can provide you with replacement rods for $5 each.
If you're planning to buy this, then I recommend looking up up Glow ParaPop 28 from Adorama. It's pretty much the same as this, but it has multiple mounting options, and you can expect pretty good warranty service from Adorama for the next 2 years, should you need to replace a few broken fiberglass rods.
