My guess is Chinese made knockoff. There is only one lable that simply says 80cm. Come in typical self-seal plastic bag I see when I order Chinese parts on Ebay. However, well worth $8

Looking at the other items this seller has for sale on Amazon most are Chinese import type of items.

I have to admit it took me a good 5 minutes to figure out how to refold it and fit it in the bag. :cry:

Isn't 80 centimeters about 31.5"? Is the reflector a 40" one?

Any "Westcott" name on it? Is it fake?
