Default Photoflex strobes

Has anybody tried Photoflex strobes, what do you think about them. Also, do they actually manufacture them or are they re-branded from another manufacturer.

I know it's not wise to go with a new brand but the choices here are rather limited.



Thanks

I'm really interested too. I do think their domes or soft boxes if you will,
especially the larger Octodome 3's look promising . I also believe Photoflex
domes will fit other strobes as well.

Hi Keith,

Somebody in DPR says they are made in Germany for Photoflex. He has some and he is happy with them.

If you want the best strobes made in Germany, look at Hensel. Reasonably priced and well made, of course. Plus they're dual voltage, so you can use them on either continent. Or maybe Hensel makes the Photoflex strobes. I don't know.

I would JD but the choices where I'm at are rather limited. The other choice is Bowens, which I heard are rather expensive.
