For those who might be interested, PCB has done some testing of an Elinchrom DLite and a 600RX with a prototype of his new Mini Vagabond:

3.2 sec recycle to full power with a single 600RX is certainly respectable.

EDIT: I should have added that we'll know for sure if this performance holds up once production units get into users' hands which will be in n(6 weeks) where "n" is a variable that, in PCB's world, always remains variable.

at least he lets the consumers know what he's up to. It's more exciting that you are following the production progression rather than hoping for something that rumors would ring true: (think canon 24-70 IS)

i will stress test the vgm with my elinchrom strobes when i get one and post results.

Maybe last quarter 2011.:cool:
But anyone planning to have it for Christmas 2011 probably won't get it due to backorders.:rolleyes:

C'mon, Rob, when has PCB ever let a promised shipping deadline slip?
