Well, after 180 views on my other post and no replies I decided to pass on the Starflash units at this time. I opted for the Hensel Integra units. The one thing I can't seem to find in any of the manual etc is, do you leave the glass domes on for transport (with the plastic cover over them) or do you remove and replace for each use. Not having the high end stuff before this is fairly new to me.

BTW - A couple AB units will be coming up for sale from me as soon as I get comfortable with the Hensels.

I think no one had anything meaningful to say about the Starflash units and lot's of people were diverted to the thread on the the Alien bees.

By the way, you most be an early G1 member, since it shows you joined in 1969.

I'm always interested in Bees, so drop me a note when you're ready to sell them.

As for transporting Hensels, I've usually noticed the plastic cover was on them when unpacking them, but I don't recall the dome being there. But I've only worked with them 3 or 4 times.

Cheers,
rfs

Thanks. I dropped an email to Hensel to see what they recommend. The plastic cap fits with the glass on, just not sure its a good idea for storage or transport. The units seem really well built. I also went and got a new softbox to replace one of my AB brand boxes. I sure wish Paul Buff would follow the lead of others and make their boxes easier to put together. I picked up the Photoflex halfdome and all I can say is wow. Easy to setup. No fumbling with rods that don't like to stay in pockets etc. But of course its a few bucks more, guess that is cost of economy. The AB box has served me well over the years, but all things tend to wearout eventually.

I have 3 - AB400, 1-AB800, a glamour dish, large softbox (not the wornout one) and wired remote I will be selling shortly. I'll drop an email on this site efore I put them up so the "locals" can have a chance at them before I put them on the auction site.

Cheers.
