I am thinking about purchasing a Kacey Beauty Dish and I am not sure I need the bracket they sell. I have A Cheetah 24 softbox and was thinking about using the bracket from that. Would that work? It would make it a less expensive option.

I use the Cheetah Stand one, and ordered the Kacey Beauty Dish with a Bowens mount.

The Cheetah Stand bracket is excellent.

I know of two other brackets. I have two of the Strobies brackets from iNterfit. I also have a 16" BD in a Bowens mount. The other bracket is very similar to the one I have but it only has a lower support whereas the Strobies has full support top bottom and rear. I even bought a couple of speed rings for the Bowen mount. I haven't purchased the softboxes I want yet.

Thanks for your responses. The Kacey bracket looks good as does the separate Cheetah one. However I am in a less is more frame of mine. The bracket that comes with the Cheetah Q Box 24 seems to work well and has 4 bolts hols that look standard. Is there any reason this couldn't be used for both?

Not sure how much the Kacey dish weights but I doubt the Q box bracket is intended to hold up that weight. The Kacey bracket seems a much better choice with the Cheetah Pro bracket a close second.

Nope; won't work. The holes in the QBox24 bracket are spaced approximately 107mm apart. The holes in Jerry Kacey's BD and, of course, his bracket are spaced approximately 135mm apart.

You ordered it and it works or you ordered it and havent received it yet? Im intereted in this as well. I want a BD but the Kacey bracket, while Im sure is nice, is quite pricey.
