Is there a way to use these (Mini TT1 and Flex TT5) with out this stupid "RF Sock"? Without the "Sock" I get about 6' max! The sock and hot shoe grounding adapter is a real pan in the A$$ to install and also makes thing like gels really hard to work with. I know about the "Hard" shield offered by PW, but that limits angling the flash head. For what I/we pay for these things, you would think PW or Canon would come up with a fix! Any ideas out there? Should I just count the PW's a loss and get another brand and would they do the same thing? No way can I get diff Speedlights.
