    I’ve had great experiences dealing with CheetahStand, other than the costs of going through mail forwarder to get to Australia. I’d definitely be going to them instead of the ebay sellers if I was in USA (assuming price premium not too high).

    Still, just not sure I see a need for these. Why even copy QFlash and the speedlight type layout? Surely things like Elinchrom Ranger Quadra design is more practical? Or even the Norman’s and Lumedynes?

    I did get the Jinbei version – but found rarely used it. Not as convenient as speedlights, not as powerful or pratical as quadras.
