Yup. That's what I did and that photo is exactly what I needed to see (wish I saw it a day ago) - I didn't realize just how big the E700 was AND the fact that it doesn't fit on and won't mount anything I own.

The F830 has me intrigued now..

E700 too big? Sure it is not the E710 as shown above. Which boom you using?

Yes, my mistake Bobbyz. I was talking about the E710 - I took some pictures showing how big it was but they're on my home computer.

I'm using a Calumet C-stand with a Matthews boom (I think it's Matthews - got it at Samy's in Santa Ana last week)

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

I use the middle one (e700) on a Avenger boom and stand, Alien Bee 1600 with a 22" Beauty dish. The drop down pin make it very easy to adjust the angle of the BD, without having to readjust the stand or boom pole.

Hey guys, picked up one a E700 based on how imperative people made it seem to be, but I'm not quite sure what the advantage is of hanging it is; could someone list out all of the pros of having the drop down pin? Feels like I'm missing something here :p

Here's one of Tetrode's photos... This should explain the constant angle no matter what position the boom is in. It also prevents the strobe from spinning on the end of the grip or boom.

By hanging from below, you are transferring the force of a heavy modifier to the E700 INSTEAD of the strobe's connection mounted at 90 degrees to the end of the boom.
