I'm in need of a single or a pair of speedlites that will always wake when using my RF-602 system. At the moment I have 5 speedlites (2 x 540EZ, 1 x 420EX, 1 x Zeikos 680EX and a really old Chinon 360-s) that I've been using for off camera flash. All of them except the Zeikos will wake and start working perfectly when the shutter button is depressed half way. The Zeikos is a fairly powerful speedlite and it has some nice features, but this one issue casues me problems when I'm shooting basketball and there are moments when the action happens at the other end of the court for a while or there is a time out and the flash goes to sleep. Halfway depressing the shutter button wakes the other speedlites (2 x 540EZ's and the 420EX) immediately. So to wake it I have to go over to the unit, lower the stand and turn it off and then back on again and reset everything. A real pain.
So I would like to either get a pair of the same speedlites that have full manual control, or another 420EX. My preference would be for the a new pair of manual control units. But they have to be able to be waken via the RF-602 system and still have a bit of power. The Yong Nuo flashes are pretty cheap and easily available. Do they wake with the RF-602?
