Which do I want and why? As far as I can tell Strobe connector (i'm assuming this is aka speed ring or are they both speed rings) only works with soft boxes but the octoconnector works with softboxes (atleast the one I got, multidome) and octodomes. Why would you get the strobe connector over the octo connector?

Also there are two model numbers for each but nothing that explains what the difference is (both say all models)

STROBE CONNECTORS:

SC-8005PBR
Alien Bees All models (please note: Balcar & Alien Bees are identical connectors and are interchangable)

SC-8002BR
Alien Bees All models (please note: Balcar & Alien Bees are identical connectors and are interchangable)



OCTO CONNECTOR CHART:

SC-9002BR
Alien Bees All models (please note: Balcar & Alien Bees and are interchangable)

SC-9005PBR
Alien Bees All models (please note: Balcar & Alien Bees are identical connectors and are interchangable)


Once I've established I need where is a good place to get it for a reasonable price by friday? Aparently adorama and B&H are closed and uniquephoto isn' listing either of those.

Thanks

The Octodome speed ring doesn't work with the strip dome.

The regular speed ring works with the strip dome but not the octodome.

Both speed rings will work with the multidome.
